Khomani Cultural Landscape, South Africa
Khomani Cultural Landscape is a gigantic expanse of sand located in the northern part of South Africa at the border with the neighboring Botswana and Namibia.
It coincides with the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park (KGNP) and contains evidence of human occupation from the Stone Age to the present.
The site is associated with the culture of the formally nomadic Khomani San people and the tactics they employed to adapt to harsh desert conditions.
It is alleged that the Khomani San people developed specific ethno-botanical knowledge, cultural practices, and a worldview related to the geographical features of their environment.
The landscape bears testimony to the way of life that prevailed in the region and shaped the site over thousands of years.
