Namibia: A visit to the Saan people 3

The Saan people or A visit to the Bushmen

Making fire by rubbing sticks together to create enough heat to ignite dried grass and bark.


I feel privileged to have met and been welcomed by a tribe of Saan people. Scientific and anthropological research now leads scientists to believe they bear the origins of the human race. These hunter-gatherers are also considered as the first inhabitants of what is now Botswana and South Africa.

I was captivated by their generous disposition in sharing time with me.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/750 second F/4.0 ISO 100 85 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!
