The Nyae Nyae area in the eastern part of the Tsumkwe Constituency is home to one of the oldest and most fascinating cultures on the African continent: the Jul'hoansi. Their traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyle and the need to make do with what nature provides have led them to acquire a wealth of knowledge about their natural surroundings and to develop a close relationship with their environment. The Nyae Nyae area - one of the most interesting and least visited in Namibia - holds an enormous variety of habitats, which is reflected in a rich and diverse flora. This botanical field guide provides concise and easy-to-read descriptions of the distinctive features of 238 plants occurring in the region and highlights their traditional uses. The text is illustrated by some 450 full-color photographs.
