It’s easy to develop preconceived notions of Africa, and it’s people, being less than safe for travellers. However, from my experience, this couldn’t be more further from the truth.
The Namibian and Botswanan people wore a constant and welcoming smile across their face and every passing of a local was met with intrigue and welcome. A genuine and honest interaction I hadn’t encountered with any other culture. Northern Namibia is also known for having a population of Himba People, a nomadic, unmistakably ochre-skinned tribespeople originally from Angola and still living unchanged in their mud huts today.
