Abstract:One of the two best attested mass crossings from east to west in.the northern Kalahari happened three or four hundred years ago: according to their tradition both the Herero and Ambo are of easterly origins. This article examines this possibility in more detail, and shows that there has been a great deal more population movement around the northern Kalahari than has been suggested till now. Sections: Populations around the northern Kalahari - east-west contacts in Central and Southern Africa - the Southern African negroes and Khoisan admixture - biological comparisons among Southern African negro peoples -the concept of genetic distance - genetic distances around the northern Kalahari.
