And last but not least, the Topnaar tribe, a semi nomadic tribe, an offshoot of the Nama tribe and part of the Khoisan genetic group. There are 2 Topnaar groups, the Southern #Aonin group and the Northern !Gomén group. The !Gomén Topnaars settled close to Sesfontein and the #Aonin Topnaars at the mouth of the Kuiseb River. They live a life that relies on herding goats, but also are also adapted to the dry coastal desert environment of the Namib. The relatively rich plant life of the Kuiseb River Valley provides them with additional sources of food, particularly the well-known !Nara melon.
