English Abstract:

Khoisan or Bushmen, are one of the last hunter-gatherers living on our planet that follow the traditional way of life. They inhabit the remote, harsh environment of the Kalahari and Namib deserts, and are often described as the best hunters in the world. This article presents the outline of their thousands of years old hunting techniques, strategies as well as weapons and traps applied while hunting. It also demonstrates how hunting affects the social and economical structure of their communities. The article also deals with the trends in tourist hunting in South Africa with special regard to the ‘hunting with the Bushmens’ offers.
