Dr. Abati’s team succeeds in finding remaining members of the Hadzabe tribe near Lake Eyasi in Tanzania. The Hadzabe, or “forest people,” still carry on the way of life of ancient hunter-gatherers. The team accompanies them on the hunt and observes their special form of communication with honey birds.
In the second part of the documentary, the team encounters the Topnaar tribe in the deserts of Namibia. This tribe lives next to the dry basin of the Kuiseb River and traditionally lives off the wild nara fruit, which is very well-adapted to the desert climate. The tribe’s burial traditions reflect their conceptions of life.
