The southwest coast of Africa is a geography defined by deserts and resources are scarce. Water is very limited or simply unavailable. However, there are people that have managed to survive such formidable and unforgiving conditions for at least 30 thousand years. The Bushmen who have inhabited these lands forever, are one of the few remaining hunter-gatherer communities on the planet today. We walk for days on endless plains with the Bushmen, hunt and gather by traditional methods, take a peek at the colorful life of the Himba people and witness how the Topnaar have survived in the harsh desert conditions with the help of one peculiar fruit.
