Nhoma Safari Camp Activities:
Activities in the village depend on what individual people are doing, such as cooking, making crafts, preparing hides, making hunting equipment such as quivers or arrows, preparing medicine. Afternoon activities start at 3 pm in winter and 4 pm in summer.
There may or may not be a healing dance in the evening, but it is usual for guests to experience this on at least one evening.
Full day experiences cover:
* Cultural experience -
Guests are taken on a hunting/gathering excursion with four hunters. Skills such as fire making, rope making and setting of traps for birds and antelopes are demonstrated, as well as lesser known hunting skills with, for example, the springhare probe.
Because the Ju/'hoansi are still active hunters, the hunters will follow promising tracks and the walk can turn into an actual hunt. The duration and intensity of the walk depends on the fitness of the guests and is adaptable. No set route or programme is followed. Honey and veld food is also actively sought.
There is lots of interaction between the visitor and the hunters. In the afternoon, the community of //nhoq’ma awaits the return of the hunters to see what they brought back. The whole community will then participate in traditional games. This is followed by the Giraffe or Elephant healing dances in the evening after dinner, through which the healers reach an altered state of consciousness whereby they can cure illness. (Day visitors will only see a demonstration of the dance in daylight).
* Khaudum National Park
Day tours to this unfenced and unspoilt park (60 km away, but one and a half hour drive with a 4WD vehicle), is only recommended from July till October (game numbers too low in the rainy season). Overnight camping tours will again be offered when the facilities in the park are improved in 2009
* Nyae pan
Full day tour to the Nyae Nyae pan (interesting bird life) and the fascinating baobab trees to the east. (The area can become inaccessible from February to April as it may become water-logged).
