Tucsin Tsumkwe Lodge - San Culture & Traditional Villages

So much rain, its hard to comprehend we had a serious drought until recent. Vast parts of the landscape in the north of Namibia are saturated by good rains.
TUCSIN Tsumkwe Lodge reported, the Nyae Nyae Pans are full of water, many aquatic birds will soon flock to the pans edge to feed and breed. Roads in and out of Tsumkwe are still fine and can be driven.


Guests visiting the area can access the lodge without any trouble. Some of the traditional San villages in the Nyae Nyae Conservancy are not accessible for the moment.
Cultural tours are conducted either in a half day or full day program. Participating with the Ju/’hoansi San Bushmen on activities will afford guests the unique opportunity to have direct contact and insight into the precious - but rare - value systems of traditional hunter-gatherer societies.


TUCSIN Tsumkwe Lodge is not only an accommodation facility, it’s a non-profit organization that uplift the San community through Tourism, as well as supporting schools and learners, providing training opportunities to adults and youth, and assist the Ju/’hoansi people to preserve and celebrate their culture while learning to adapt to modern society.

In support of the San Culture, Tucsin Tsumkwe Lodge invites you to visit one of the last remaining wilderness areas, home to a unique group of people, deeply rooted within a culture that stretches as far back as the first humans on the African continent.
