Kalahari Bushmen

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

The Kalahari Bushmen are one of the last primitive tribes to hunt by running their prey down. Sometimes called a “Persistence Hunt” they run after animals similar to antelope. It’s a test of strength and will that they exhaust the animal before they themselves drop. These hunts often last 8 hours or more and take place in temperatures that exceed 110 degrees F.
