Walk with the San

One of the most interesting and exciting activities on Intu Afrika is an hour long ‘Bushman Walk’ in the Kalahari landscape that is conducted at the guests requests and can be booked from any of the lodges on the Intu Afrika Kalahari Game Reserve.

The term ‘Bushman’ now referred to as the San people, refers to the nomadic hunter-gatherers indigenous to this area. The San People know the Kalahari Desert better than any other human beings and have survived the dry conditions for generations. They have studied nature and know where to find food and water in the harsh conditions of the unrelenting and unforgiving desert landscapes. They are hunter-gatherers, hunting with bows and arrows, trapping small animals and eating edible roots and berries and they eagerly demonstrate this to guests.

What makes this phenomenal experience is the click language that the San use to express themselves and with dramatic illustrations, guests are able to communicate with and understand the interesting information the San people share.

The Bushman Walk

Walks with the San can be arranged at any of the lodges on the Intu Afrika Kalahari Game Reserve and they usually take place in the morning.

Allow the original people of this area to teach you their desert survival secrets and you will be amazed by what you learn.
