The Himba are an African tribe in northwestern Namibia, nomadic cattle herders who continue to live today much as they did 100 and 1,000 years ago.
It’s a beautiful morning on the Hoarusib. We decide we’ll drive out the riverbed a ways, and if the going isn’t awful, we’ll stay here another night.
We re-supplied in Opuwo and headed southwest to Puros, a tiny village in Kaokoland. We didn’t actually go to Puros, but explored the surrounding area.
From the Kunene River at the northernmost edge of Namibia, we traveled down to Opuwo, popping up to see the impressive Epupa Falls on the way.
We left Etosha National Park through the Galton Gate and headed northwest through the mountains to the Kunene River, which separates Namibia from Angola.
We spend our last full day in the park in Okaukuejo. We see fewer animals here, which allows us to focus on different details and aspects of the park.
