In the desert, a group of local bushmen (and women) from the San tribe led us on a desert walk and showed us the roots and local vegetation that their people consume. It was fascinating to see them pull a root from the ground, and grate it with a stick to produce liquid! They also showed us how they build fire and what plants they use to dye animal skins for clothing.

The Himba are an ethnic group of about 20,000 to 50,000 people living in northern Namibia, and the women are known for covering themselves in a mixture of butter fat, ochre and herbs (as protection from the sun) that gives their skin this reddish color.
