Eastern Namibia

Things to do - general

Travel east from Etosha or Windhoek, some four hours by car, and you will find Bushmanland to the North and the Kalahari to the south. This is remote country, even by Namibian standards. Here within scattered small villages live the San Bushmen, famous for their survival skills. Visit Khaudum National Park with its amazing herds of game, and the beginnings of the Kalahari Dessert, which stretches across eight different countries rewarding visitors with its silence and solitude.

Country Namibia

Culture and history info

Until about 2,000 years ago the original hunters and gatherers of the San people were the only inhabitants in Namibia. At this time the Nama(also known as Namaqua), the Khoikhoi and the Hottentots settled around the Orange River in the south on the border between Namibia and South Africa where they kept herds of sheep and goats. Both the San and the Nama were Khoisan peoples, and spoke languages from the Khoisan language group. In the 9th century the Damara entered Namibia. The Damara tribe have Bantu features and do not relate to the other Khoisan tribes although they share a similar language. It is believed that they separated themselves early on from their Bantu brothers of Northern Africa and moved to South west Africa. It is unclear where they came from, but they settled in the grasslands in central Namibia, known as Damaraland.Culture and history image
