Own Correspondent|The Himba Tribe of Namibia, otherwise known as Ovahimba tribe have over the years held firmly to their cultural beliefs that have defied western influences.

And upheld cultural practices that many find absurd.

The people of Himba have a practice called ” Okujepisa Omukazendu ” meaning offering wife to guest.

It is a practice where a man allows his guest to have intercourse with his wife on the night of his visit as a sign of excitement or joy over the visit.

On this night the husband has to sleep in a seperate hut. in a situation whereby there is no available hut, then the husband will sleep outside.

Polygamy is also a common practice among the Himba tribe their affair a secret, in Himba they make their affair public.

The people of Himba also do not have their baths with water. This is because of the harsh climate situation in their region.

Instead, They make use of the red ochre on their skins and then make use of a daily smoke bath in order to maintain their hygiene.

This doesnt make them look less pretty, the people are friendly to strangers and visitors but will not allow any interference in their culture.
