The most famous things to see around that area is the “white Lady“. We joined a tour to see the Painting on the rock, which was the communication between the bushmen in Namibia.

This part of Namibia is famous for it Herero People.

The Herero was heavily influenced by Western culture during the colonial period, creating a whole new identity. Although they are ethic group from Africa, they are so different from the the ethic group-Himba. The only thing in common was they both do cattle raising:)

  4. Dearest Tammy,
    When I was doing research about our trip to South Africa (1985) I wanted to know where we went and find out more about the Khoikhoi. http://www.sahistory.org.za/people-south-africa/khoikhoi
    All of a sudden I came to the Herero people from Namibia. But I was shocked for finding out a piece of history that has been hidden for a CENTURY! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-HvcTpiAbw&feature=share&list=PL8E006CE5618C0876&index=1
    Now you too find out where you spent one month of your time.
    Hugs to you,
    Mariette

  5. Wow gorgeous pics my friend !
