Visiting a Himba Village & Exploring Namibia

Landscapes, dwellings, animals, ancient rock carvings and local Tribes in the vast, desert nation of Namibia. Namibia, like many African countries, has an all-to-recent sordid history, but the lack of exposure to the modern world, the remote locations of the indigenous peoples, and harshness of the arid environment make Namibia an incredibly diverse and dynamic nation deeply worthy of exploration. Many people live mostly 'Western' lives in the major cities, Walvis Bay and Windhoek, but with only 2.5 million people in a massive country, everyone'se life is primarily focused on outdoor activities and a rural lifestyle. A and A took a road trip with Matiti Safaris, organized by MOWPAN (a conservation group) from Walvis Bay through Damaraland, Skeleton Coast, and Kaokoveld up to Epupa Falls on the Angolan Boarded and back, and a separate road trip with some local friends from Walvis bay out to Sossusvlei and Deadvlei in central Namibia. This collection of images tracks our journeys through rural life in Namibia, and is highlighted by an incredible experience with the Himba Tribe (ovaHimba) in their native lands in the north.
