    An old African woman from the Bushmen tribe in Botswana, Kalahari Desert. The 'Bushmen' or 'San' are the oldest inhabitants of southern Africa. They are hunter-gatherers and their home is the Kalahari desert. The Bushmen speak a variety of languages with a unique 'click' sound. They hunt, mainly various kinds of antelope, but their daily diet is also based on fruits, nuts and roots which they seek out in the desert. // by Dietmar Temps
