2010, my trip to Namibia. After landing in Windhoek I left for the northern part of the country, heading to the Epupa falls, at the border with Angola.
I was traveling with another friend, an exceptional photographer from Italy, and together we hired a driver/guide to take throughout the country. She was a very knowledgeable Swiss woman living in Namibia and she knew the nation like she knew the palm of her hand.
She managed to make agreements with a Himba village in the area so that we could camp near their "manyatta" (actually this is a Kenyan term for the Maasais villages, but the structure of Himbas' small living places is almost exactly the same) and take photos of them during their daily life for about three days.
Every night we would hear a loud chanting coming from inside the Manyatta, but we decided to win all hesitation and go to see what was happening there only the third and last night.
What an experience!!! The women, the girls, and the children were dancing and playing around the bonfire they lit every night, and they allowed us to take photos of them during the breathtaking party under the African sky.
Here is one of the shots taken that magical night.
