Sān Living Cultural Landscape is part of the Tentative list of Namibia in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Sān Living Cultural Landscape shows the traditional land-use of the Sān and the artistic results of their beliefs and traditions in rock art. The living hunter-gatherer culture of the Sān is a reminder of the foundation from which all human cultures and societies emerged. The ancient way of life that is still followed by the Sān has allowed archaeologists, sociologists, and anthropologists to interpret archaeological remains and to reconstruct the likely way of life of prehistoric hunter-gatherer communities all over the world.
