The first indigenous people of southern Africa, whose territory spans most areas of Southern Africa traditionally, are referred to most commonly as Bushmen, the San Khoi o San people. These people were traditionally hunter-gatherers, part of the Khoisan group and are related to the traditionally pastoral Khoikhoi. In the 1950’s to the 1990’s as a result of government programs their lifestyle has changed forever. For people traveling today to Botswana and Namibia, you may choose to have the opportunity to meet and interact with a Bushmen family. Jackson’s African Safaris try our best to ensure this is done in a sensitive and authentic manner.
