Himba Village, Northern Namibia
The Himba people live in northern Namibia and southern Angola, and are considered the last semi-nomadic people of Namibia. This village is in the Kunene Region. According to our guide, the Himba are the last Namibian tribes to still wear traditional ethnic clothing and animal skins. Women cover their skin with a red pigment made from a mixture of ochre and butterfat. Villages are supported by farming and herding. Some villages allow tourists to visit as a way to earn extra income.
