Namibia: The Himba People

The Himba people are a minority group in Namibia (ca. 1% of the population) with a semi-nomadic lifestyle, driven by finding adequate grazing for their drought-resistant cattle in the remote and barren area of Kaokoland.  This collection of photographs was taken with a Nikon D90 camera in May 2012 in two Himba villages near Epupa, in the far north of Namibia on the Kunene river which forms the border with Angola.
