Early in the morning we leave D’kar for traveling to Maun. Our group stops enroute at a Herero village to visit a community of descendants of exile survivors of the battle of the Waterberg, 1904. The Herero are traditionally cattle-herding pastoralists. During our visit, they give us a sustainable impression about their daily way of living in Botswana since they arrived as refugees: fleeing from the German soldiers in “Deutsch Südwest Africa”, their original homeland, and today’s Namibia.
