In the lands of southern Africa, we find one of the world’s oldest peoples: the Bushmen—hunter-gatherers, nomads with a tragic destiny, and today nearly extinct.
When the first Europeans entered at the Cape, the Bushmen and their cousins, the Khoi, fled them and migrated ever northward.
In this episode, we will follow in their footsteps right to the Kalahari Desert, where the last Bushmen have found refuge.
About Mythical Roads:
Whether remote or packed with tourists, recent or old, famous or forgotten, certain routes are paved with legends. This series explores itineraries that have made history across five continents—some roads and rivers that separated countries, and others that formed links, creating pathways for traders, fortune-seekers, evangelists, conquerors, and travelers. As historical symbols, these routes now ignite the imaginations of millions of people in search of adventure and freedom.
The original and poetic approach of this series casts a new light on these mythical roads. Throughout the journey, the routes unfold through the eyes of the men and women who live and work along them, and who continue to sustain the legends.
Personal adventures alternate with extraordinary explorations, unforgettable encounters, and surprising developments.
