"Children working for heritage"

 

Date: 15.04 - 01.05. 2006
Site:  Baynes Mountains
Biome:   Mopane Savannah
Special Features:

During this expedition we came to realise that the Tjimba and Himba are the masters and owners of the Baynes Mountains. They stay in a place rich in plant and animal life. We also got a first-hand impression about the way the local Tjimba and Himba people live during our expedition to the area. They shared with us their knowledge of nature and we were able to learn a lot from them.

On this expedition we discovered their large and beautiful "shopping centre" – nature! With the indigenous knowledge of this people we found plenty of different useful plants and learned how to use these for various pupuses like food, medicine, cosmetics, etc.
