Apart from the spectacular landscape of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, the !Ae!Hai Kalahari Heritage Park also offers a variety of activities to visitors. These include sharing the Bushman hunter-gatherer culture and their deep understanding of the natural environment, as well as their world view and spirituality.
One of the highlights of a visit to the Kalahari is the opportunity to undertake walks and trails with the trackers and guides. The walks can be tailor-made to suit personal preferences, needs and interests and could vary from an hour-long walk to a few days trail.
The truly adventurous and those wanting to gain a deeper understanding of San culture, traditional knowledge and bush skills, could join the traditional veld school deep in the park for a period of time ranging from a few days to a few weeks.
The Living Museum is an authentic open-air museum where guests can learn about the traditional culture and the original way of living of the San.
One could also undertake a hunt with experienced hunters and honour the age old rituals associated with the hunt and experience the ways of the past.
Evenings could be spent with the elders telling stories around the fire, or experiencing the age-old song and dance traditions.
