The best way to learn about a place is to get a ‘local’ to show you round. And, the Kalahari is no exception! This is a rare opportunity to learn from the masters. Join our Bushman Kalahari safari and explore with the guides of the Naru-speaking tribe.
Apart from having the privilege of meeting one of Africa’s oldest cultures, you’ll go on walks and game drives too. Together we’ll learn the survival and hunting skills which have been passed down through generations. And, discover how the San people have adapted their lives in order to survive one of the most harsh environments in the world.

Have you seen the movie Gladiator? If not, go and watch right now. Those who have seen in will be glad to know that Sahara is the location where the most prominent scenes of the movie were shot. You can start with capturing the velvet dunes and taking photos of the snake charmers and mighty camels proudly swaying as they carry bedouins on their back. Once in a province, you will get a chance to capture and even participate in the traditional tea ceremony as well as to see the locals playing gnawa music performed on goatskin drums. The beauty of the sunset in Sahara is just a cherry on the top of a cake you cannot miss out on.
