Life in the Bush
Photo and caption by Preetha Iyengar
This photo was taken at the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park near the Kalahari Desert in Botswana. This bushman is a member of one of the Kalahari Bushmen tribes, who have developed many strategies to survive in the harsh desert conditions. One of these strategies is to make fire, an essential resource, using only dry zebra dung and a few sticks.
