The Himba - The most beautiful people in Africa

The Himba are a tribe of nomadic pastoralists who inhabit the Kaokoland area of Namibia. The Himba are actually descendants of a group of Herero herders who fled into the remote north-west after been displaced by the Nama. The Himba have clung to their traditions and the beautiful Himba women are noted for their intricate hairstyles which and traditional jewellery.

As Himba men and woman wear few clothes apart from a loin cloth or goat skinned mini-skirt, they rub their bodies with red ochre and fat to protect themselves from the sun and also gives their appearance a rich red colour.

You can find more details in the following National Geographic article:

My wife and I have spent a remarkable day with these beautiful people, a day we'll never forget. When you see the constant struggle for basics in life, but at the same time the happiness and joy from the simple things, it reflects on your own life. Are we happier than these people? I'm not so sure.
