Traditional medicines are pointed out along the way. Games are played in the afternoon, followed by a healing dance at night which is not a performance, but the way illness is cured. Day visitors will see the dance in daylight.No fixed programme is ever followed and the intensity/duration of the walk can be adapted. Sleeping out in the bush in the hunting area (outside rainy season) can be arranged.
