Ghanzi Trance Dance
The Ghanzi Trance Dance is not something taken lightly by the San people (also called Bushmen or Basarwa) as it is part of the Bushman Religion and performed when someone is genuinely ill.
Similar to the Trance Dance, the San also performs the Rain Dance which is a celebratory dance for good hunts, for the pleasure of having a get together or just for enjoyment.
Trance dances are not commercial performances but are carried out by real Bushmen who still live their traditional lifestyle deep in the Kalahari in Botswana.
The Trance dance is the most famous dance and can last from three hours to all night – all depending on how the gods react to the rhythmical clapping, dancing and chanting of the San people.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
