is it right that the best area to see the OvaHimba culture is up in northern Kaokoland {on the way to Epupa falls}?

some companies meet them south of etosha, at:
# Kamanjab
"This is the only traditionally functioning Himba community outside the far north Kaokoland region of Namibia These tribes-people have migrated here, lifestyle and customs intact, and are following their traditional way-of-life in their village on a farm. Oase Village is located about 15 to 20 km outside Kamanjab

# Outjo
another place mentioned in tour itineraries

has anybody been to those places ?

Aby,

Before you start planning your next adventure, you have to get back over to the Latin America board and report on your Costa Rica trip.

I want to know what wildlife you saw where.

Hey Lynn

as soon as i get time & learn some digital procedures, i'll put up some photos

Have not seen a Quetzal, got probably mostly the commonly seen wildlife.
anything less common? i caught a Boa constrictor on the way to Tortuguero; seen an albino Agouti in Manuel Antonio...

Aby,

Ok, you are granted an extension on Costa Rica. An albino Agouti has to be one for the record books.

As for the Himba, I am working my butt off to get enough money to visit both colorful and not so colorful people plus other places, like a return to Costa Rica. Just provide ME an extension and someday I'll make it there, I promise. In the meantime, feel free to check it out yourself and let us know what you find.

just got mail on a deal to CR US$499
includes AIR, 6 nights HOTEL b&B 2X San Jose. Arenal, Monteverde
+ 4X4 (Toyota)...

Since flight is from the states, it's irrelevant to me, but for Yankees it's cheaper than staying at home

Aby, Thanks for the info on a great deal. The job prevents a quick getaway at this time. But might work for others. Have you put that up on Latin America?
