Life on a table – Antoinette’s new book

Namibians? We are the braai, kapana, lazy afternoons and long evenings around a fire – we are a hearty feast of the very best of meat grilled on real wood fires under an endless sky. It is beautiful to see how people cook and eat the way that they talk, think and live.

Books on the people of Namibia

Namibia is country rich in culture. From the Zambezians in the northeast, the Oshiwambo in the central north and the Ovahimba in the northwest, to the Herero and Damara in the central regions and the Nama and San in the south and east, Namibians across the country are proud of their heritage, language and communities. As part of this year's Namibia Tourism Expo's theme, which centres around communties, we delved into our archives and scanned and bookshelves for books that feature, pay homage to and explore various Namibian cultures and communities.
