Namibia Flight Safari - 2012

They live in small extended family groups of about 20-30 individuals and create

temporary “towns” in the open desert by erecting thorny fences in a circle to protect

themselves from wild animals. Inside the circle are their rude huts created of cattle dung

and wattle. They have some cattle, goats, and sheep as well as chickens and try to grow

some vegetables in the inhospitable sands.

The women are bare

breasted and wear sarong

type skirts around their

waists anchored by metal

belts. They cover their

bodies with the red powdery

dust of the desert to protect

themselves from sunburn

and from biting insects.
