San on  OmandumbaSan on Omandumba1. Visit at the San Living Museum

Visitors of the Living Museum get an interesting insight into the ancient hunter-gatherer culture and the traditional way of the San. Different programs are offered for example the bush walk in the Erongo, which visits the rock paintings and during which many plants and their uses are explained. The visitors can also go on a traditional hunt with the San and much more.

The visit to the San is unique and worth it, that we have dedicated a whole page on our website to the Living Museum. More information can be found here: San on Omandumba

The Erongo is known for its wealth regarding rock paintings and rock engravings. Hundreds to thousands of years ago Bushmen lived and hunted in the Erongo Mountains and driven by different motives they left rock paintings and engravings. On our tour through the Erongo we show you many of the impressive works of art and explain the possible reason behind their creation.

On Omandumba we also have some very rare and valuable paintings like the Swarm of Bees, the Boat and the Basket Bearers.
