Namibia and the Himba People
Namibia is a vast country in southwest Africa, distinguished by the Namib Desert along its Atlantic Ocean coast. Sparsely populated Namibia has enjoyed stability since gaining independence in 1990 after a long struggle against South African rule. Namibia is an otherworldly nation of desert landscapes and incredible biodiversity. There is life among the colossal dunes, rugged mountains and ship wrecked skeleton coast. I remember ballooning silently above the dunes and losing myself in the patterns of the country below. A visit to the Himba people, who are indigenous people of Namibia, was memorable.
