The Himba practice monotheism and ancestor worship. Their god is Mukuru, creator of everything, but a remote god. Communication with Mukuru only takes place through the spirits of the male ancestors. For this reason the ancestral fire, or okuruwo, is kept burning 24 hours a day. Mukuru created man, woman and cattle from the same tree, although he does not have unlimited power and ancestors can also greatly influence worldly events.

One of the most important things to the Huaorani is family life. In the long houses, extended families are very close. Everyone helps out: men, women and children. The men fell trees to clear fields for the women to tend. Once they have used the soil to its full potential, they leave the area to find another. They do this to allow the ground to heal.

The sand dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert are often referred to as the highest dunes in the world. Various arguments are laid out to support this claim, but all miss the point, which is that Sossusvlei is surely one of the most spectacular sights in Namibia. 'Vlei' is the Afrikaans word for a shallow depression filled with water. During exceptional rainy seasons, Sossusvlei may fill with water, causing Namibians to flock there to witness the grand sight, but normally it is bone dry.

The Himba homestead is a family unit, overseen by the headman who is normally a grandfather and the oldest male in the village. He is responsible for residence, religious aspects of life embodied by the sacred fire and ensuring that the rules of tradition and the specific rules of the clan are obeyed. The matrilineal aspect is responsible for movable property and economic matters such as handling of money and property. The Himba headman’s authority is identified by an erenge bracelet.

GAUCHOS The Argentinian Pampas - rolling terrains of grasses, flowers and herbs - are the home of the Gauchos. The nomadic and colourful horsemen and cowboys have wandered the prairies since as early as the 1700s, when the flatlands were overpopulated by wild Cimarron cattle, originally brought to South America by the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Mendoza in 1538.

The Himba have lived in scattered settlements throughout the region of the Kunene River in north-west Namibia and south-west Angola. The homes of the Himba are simple cone-shaped structures of saplings bound together with palm leaves and plastered with mud and dung. A family may move from one home to another several times a year to seek grazing pastures for their goats and cattle.
