This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary, Windhoek Namibia

Join the Ancient San Skills Academy where for 2 hours you can experience a variety of San activities such as tracking in the veldt (bush), fire making traditional San fire sticks, craft making and hunting in the traditional San way.

These traditional skills are passed down from generation to generation and the San families take it in turns to come into the area from as far as the Tsumkwe region where they spend up to 3 weeks at a time in the Windhoek area sharing their skills with visitors to Namibia.

This 1 day activity is an excellent way for the San to preserve their knowledge and to earn a living through tourism as well as ensure that they young San people are also developing their ancient skills and not losing these traditions when attending western style schools.

Spend a couple of hours with a San family, whilst learning how they hunt, find food, water and medicine with traditional skills. After a short walk through the bush, you have the chance to learn some of their traditional songs and dances, or find out how they are learning to balance traditional life in the modern world.
