This book is the record of an expedition to discover a lost tribe of river Bushmen who, according to legend and travellers’ tales, survived in the heart of the Okavango Basin, landlocked by the Kalahari Desert in Botswana. A team of scientists from Witwatersrand University set out to solve this anthropological riddle. Finally, in the heart of the swamps they found a small group of fisherfolk, fourteen survivors of the Tannekwe people. Clive Cowley tells the exciting story of the journey they made, with its adventures, the extraordinary landscape, the wildlife they saw, and the still controversial discovery they made.
