Info

A traditionally dressed Himba woman with a child speaks to three men outside a grocery store in Opuwo, a town well known for cultural tourism in northwestern Namibia. Like most traditional Himba women, she covers herself from head to toe with an ochre powder and cow butter blend. Some Himba are turning to tourism to kick-start their entry into the cash economy, setting up demonstration villages advertising "The Real Himba."
