Spirit Dancers of the San
Makgadikgadi and the Kalahari, Botswana
In a quiet corner of Botswana live the San Bushmen, a gentle and quiet people, whose legends and traditions date back hundreds of years. A visit to Jack's or San Camp will enable you to learn more about their fascinating culture.
Join the bushmen on a fascinating walk through their ancestral country, learning how they forage and find water even in the driest of times. Using techniques passed from father to son through the centuries, they will invite you into their world and show you their gentle ways.
At the end of the walk, the San gather for their mystical Spirit Dance, an incredible fusion of rhythm and chanting, all members of the tribe from the elders to the toddlers joining in. As the sun sets over the Makgadikgadi, the bushmen will dance around the fire, invoking the spirits of their ancestors. It's a profoundly moving experience and one which is an absolute must when visiting this remote corner of Botswana.
