10 Most Famous African Tribes (The Original Africans)

Rich with traditions that survived thousands of years, these African tribes are an explorers dream

San Bushmen

Botswana Makgadikgadi San Bushman

Third on the list is the tribe of San Bushmen. Living in South Africa, approximately 100,000 San Bushmen reside in the areas of Botswana, Namibia, and Angola. Notable to mention is the “Central Kalahari Game Reserve” which was made to protect traditional territory.

It was during the 80’s that a discovery of diamonds occurred, which led to the government forcing many Bushmen to leave their homes. Moreover, many homes had gotten dismantled, supplies of water were destroyed and health clinics were removed.

  1. This is an interesting list that you have! I enjoyed reading through it. Might I add another tribe? The Hadzabe Tribe of Tanzania are an interesting group of people. They don’t have permanent homes but move from one place to another and live off the land. They also have their own unique language known as “clicking”. I think having their own language alone would be evidence of how old the tribe has existed. And the fact that within the tribe there is no leader and everyone’s status is equal. I think that’s a rather progressive view of things to have. Don’t you think they’re an interesting tribe to meet? They’re one of the few tribes I would love to visit when I travel to Africa.
