Angola: Searching for the 'lost' tribes of Southern Angola
Mwila Himba Cuis Mucuis Mucubal Nguendelengo Curoca Mucuroca Muhacaona Mucawana Handa people. Just some of the distinctive and striking people of Southern Angola from the 90 different ethnic groups across the country.
Cut off after 27 years of civil war and buffered to the south by the roadless wilderness of the Namib, nomadic tribes still wander Angola’s remote south-western corner, driving their goats and cattle between waterholes as they have for centuries. With every step that a rapidly-developing, oil-rich Angola takes towards modernity, the long-held isolation of these ‘lost’ tribes’ is in danger of eroding.
