Bushmanland is a remote region in the north-east of Namibia.
The San Bushmen continue to use traditional skills to survive in their harsh environment
Their tracking skills are second to none.
Hunting for small animals is a daily task.
Traditional skills are passed on to younger generations.
Success!
Bushmanland consists mainly of Kalahari bush.  There are few hills and driving is all on sand.
The accommodation is not luxury...
... and there are some fly camps in the region...
... but you can interact with the local people...
... and a warm welcome is assured.
We suggest a minimum  stay of 3 nights, to allow you to absorb the unique cultural traditions
