BORN IN ETOSHA - KEEPING IT ALIVE!
‡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.
