Hungry Clicks

The Damara of Namibia speak a language that contains four clicks. It is thought that the tribe learned it in Botswana and then brought it to Namibia during a migration. 

Its sounds were quite interesting to our western ears. 


We enjoyed hearing this different approach to communication. Although we tried learning its clicks, we did not succeed. 

I found this you tube video that might be helpful if you want to try.
