To truly travel Africa, deep exploration of its collection of cultures is necessary. From the Maasai Mara in Kenya to the Zulu people of South Africa; the Ndebele artists, Khoisan nomads and Himba hunter-gatherers. This is where the origin of our civilisation lies, where humanity unfolds across the earth in an eclectic display of soulful triumph.
Africa is alive with the spirit of its people. A continent of astonishing multiculturalism, Africa offers an escape from the ordinary and a gateway to a world where the drums beat loud in celebration, music reverberates in a blended melody of acoustic harmony and the guttural chorus of indigenous cultures hums across the land as though the heart of Africa was personified.
Meet four generations of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen at Jack’s Camp in the Makgadikgadi with a chance to explore the Kalahari alongside this fast vanishing and truly awe inspiring culture. Learn about these ancient people who braved the desert plains for centuries, expertly navigating the harsh and arid lands.
Namibian culture is a rich mix of tribes and ethnicities, counting about a dozen ethnic groups. The Himba people live in the north-western part of Namibia and many still live a traditional, semi-nomadic lifestyle, sharing their very simple villages with their goats which are the main source of food and the tribe’s wealth in general.
