Settlement

  • ‡Homob is one of the more important former Hai||om settlements. There were about 40 permanent settlements within the area subsequently defined by the 1970 park boundaries

  • In former times, ||Nasoneb (Rietfontein) was an important Hai||om settlement. Kadisen ||Khumub was born there in 1940.

  • In the past, Tsînab, a natural well with a permanent settlement, was situated close to Halali, but it has been almost entirely forgotten.

  • The area to the south of Etosha's pan, where most tourist roads and camps are situated, was primarily the domain of the Hai||om, Khoesan-speaking people, who hunted and gathered around the pan.
