Sometimes one cannot think it’s normal, but it’s real. The Bushman of the past were suffering a lot with access to water. It was hard. There were no dams or boreholes like today, but there were pans that were sometimes full of water and at these times they would used this water for some time, and also store enough water for the future. Bushman people were also aware of what was available in nature that they could also use as a water source, like tsamma melons, cucumber, and roots containing water.


Later, in Apartheid times, white farmers used windmills to pump water. Things were slightly better but it created more work for the San people to get water.


Solar Pump.

Today it is easier for us to get water because we now have solar panels. Other San people who stay in townships also buy water.
