Just a little campfire bread baking - loaves baked in zebra pots sitting in the embers. This has got to be the best way to baked! Do you bake your own bread? Do you have any favourite recipes? You can read my latest blog post "How to bake bread on a campfire" link in my bio - thanks

The Bushman make a simple but very effective sandals from the hides of game. Historically they would be made from Eland but they are no longer able to hunt this antelope. This sole was found in the left-over offcuts from a @vivobarefoot kickstarter project - a few more sandals were made with the offcuts.

Necklaces made from ostrich egg shell - these were made by the ladies in the Elephant Song village in Namibia. Pieces of shell are broken into roughly round shapes (approx. 5mm diameter) and a handdrill used to drill the holes (the drill: a stick with a sharp piece of metal on the end). Then they are threaded and then ground on a rock to smooth them and make them round and of a consistent shape.

Magnificent millipede - these fab creatures left wonderful tracks, millions of pairs of legs leaving a train-track of little footmarks weaving across the sand. Actual size - body diameter: 20mm length: 200mm

Heading for the waterhole - their lolloping gate, at pace, they know where to drink in this dry patched land. It was wonderful to observe these majestic creatures - how they interacted and shared the watering hole with the other elephant's.

We cooked for a month in the Namibian bush with these brilliant Bestduty potjie pots - pot roasts, broils, and baking, oryx was our staple meat, baby pumpkins, sweet potates and yes we had cake cooked in them too: lemon drizzle and a chocolate one covered in ganash!

We spent a month here in the wilds of Namibia, enjoying the simplicity of life. Each day had a natural rythym, the familiarity of fire and food, learnibg and sharing in the community, both within our group and with the village too. There was time to build relationships, get to know members of the community, laugh and joke, tell stories, and sing and dance around the campfire. With huge thanks to the wonderful men, women and children of the village at Elephant Song Camp. (Please see link in my profile to read my blog about this experience)

The Bushman kids danced and danced, taking it in turns to put down some moves, with lots of smiles, their confidence had grown when around us - beautiful memories at Elephant Song Camp, Namibia

One of me in the bush, Namibia, relaxed at siesta time by a huge baobab tree. With a few weeks growth the beard was doing quite well! And my fab Tilley hat was warn always - shading me from the sun and keeping me cool (well cooler). It was treated to a wash half way though the month. And for those who are interested it's made of hemp and it's the TH4 with a nice broad rim - thank you @tilleyhats.

Just what is this little bug? It's body is approx. 40-50mm across, it's wings are out ready for takeoff (its 3rd attempt - possibly camera fright), it loves where elephants have been and it makes an amazing buzz as it flies around just like something out of a star wars movie. I recon George Lucas must have been inspired by this amazing bug. (yes I've played with colours to make it easier to see)

This is the spoor of a grasshopper - amazing the tracks you can explore in the sandy substrate of Namibia. Just so amazing - it jumped and left this wonderful pattern in the sand! #africa #tracksandsign #tracking #wildlife #bugslife #bushlife #livinginthebush

Tracking in Namibia, this is the main road north towards Angola and Botswana. What tracks can you see?
