Beautiful child with proud mother. While traveling in Botswana, I took a mobile safari from Maun to Victoria Falls. We stopped to replenish supplies in a small town and this girl and her mother were getting their hair done outside the supermarket. She was definitely a bit petrified of getting her photo taken by a "white" stranger.

The San bushman are a rarity, living in one of the most sever environments on earth, the Kalahari. With a land rover and plenty of supplies, you could still easily die there. There is an annual dance festival started about 15 years ago and various tribes come from western Botswana and Namibia to display their dance culture. Though young, the kids seem like the real experts. They can move! Plus they are ridiculously cute.
