A group of people called the Himba Tribe still respect and practice the traditions of their ancestors.
The Himba tribe is located in northern Namibia in the Kunene Region, formerly known as Kaokoland.
This culture allows the wife of a man to sleep with a guest completely for free.
The Himba people are friendly to strangers but won’t allow you to tamper with their culture.
The Himba people have a population of over 50,000. They are polygamous people. Their girls are married off to the suitors selected by their father once they attain puberty.
They believe that offering their wives to visitors has benefits attached, such as fostering unity in the land and reduces jealousy.
According to the Guardian, “When a visitor comes, the man shows he approves the visit by giving him the Okujepisa Omukazendu treatment.
The wife is giving to sleep with the visitor while the husband sleeps in another room. If there is no other room, the man sleeps outside.
The woman will surely sleep in the same room with the visitor but has a choice of having a sexual affair with him.
The women also make beautiful jewelry and materials used to adorn the body. They are made with iron, shell, or copper.
They wear beaded anklets to protect their lower legs against venomous animal bites. They equally wear a large white ohumba shell to show their marital status.
They wear aprons and girdles made with animal skins.
