This unique expedition brings us deep into the fabled Kalahari to meet the San people, the skilled hunter-gatherers whose African heritage dates back 30,000 years. To sit around the fire in the evening and listen to their songs, and perhaps witness a trance dance, is to travel back in time to the dawn of humankind. In our three days with the San, we stay in full-service tented camps. After our cultural expedition, we head out for a superb gameviewing safari on the jewel-green waterways of the Okavango Delta in Moremi Game Reserve, with its high game densities, in ethereal Xugana Lagoon, the quintessential Delta setting, and in the great Central Kalahari Game Reserve of Cry of the Kalahari fame. On safari, we track game by open vehicle and by dugout canoe in a spectacular array of Botswana’s richest gamelands.
The trip was amazing in every respect; I loved every moment of it and got so much out of it. I was like a sponge just soaking it all up and learning so much. Being with the San was surely the peak intercultural experience I could ever have. I think about them everyday and it was profoundly moving and meaningful and rich for me.
