Pay a visit to a Himba community to learn about their traditions and way of life.
What to expect from your visit
A memory to cherish
It's not often you have the opportunity to interact with someone from a culture so different from your own. This is an experience to remember and for many it's a highlight of their trip to the northern reaches of Namibia.
Where to go
The Himba people, also called the OvaHimba, live in the Kunene region of northern Namibia, which was previously known as Kaokoland.
When to go
Visits to Himba villages can be made year round, but do depend on their location, as they are nomadic so may not be always be in close proximity to where you are staying.
How to do it
Many camps and lodges in this area can arrange visits to Himba settlements. These include Serra Cafema Camp, Kunene River Camp, Epupa Camp, Grootberg Lodge and Opuwo Country Lodge.
