Stoping at Opuwo on our way south we are surrounded by a group of Ovambo girls who are intent of selling there trinkets. Similar to the Himba, without the otjize, they are far more colourful in their dress.

Ovambo people are part of the Great Bantu Migration from West Africa and Central Africa through Great Lake area and further down to Upper Zambezi and to later migrated gradually to their present location occupying international border regions of southern Angola and northern Namibia, popularly known as Ovamboland.
