The Living Hunter's Museum of the Ju/'Hoansi
The Living Hunter’s Museum of the Ju/'Hoansi-San close to Tsumkwe offers visitors the exclusive possibility within Namibia to experience an original hunt, apart from getting to know a very old hunter- gatherer culture.
The pure experience of historic hunter-gatherer culture
Apart from getting to know the fascinating ancient culture of the Ju/’Hoansi, native to the Kalahari desert for thousands of years, experiencing a real hunt with hunters from the Living Museum is the focal point. Here the traditional bow hunt with poisoned arrows, the digging out of spring hares and porcupines, the snare catching of guinea fowls, khoraans and other birds for the daily hunt for food has never been terminated. The San living in this area are actually the only ones of their cultural group that are officially allowed to still hunt traditionally. Thus they still master the art of reading tracks and are delighted if visitors show special interest herein. The opportunity for visitors to be able to take part in such a hunt is also unique. An English speaking Ju/'Hoansi accompanies the guests and translates everything the hunters are showing and explaining.
