Ovo je pleme sa najljepšim ljudima na planeti!

Pripadnici plemena Himba se već dugo smatraju za najuspešnije afričke stočare. Ono što ih odvaja i čini dodatno fascinantinim za zapadnog čovjeka jeste osobenost njihovog fizičkog izgleda. Naime, ovaj narod važi za najlepše afričko pleme.

The isolated tribe continues to resist the encroaching tourism industry - despite drawing fascination from travellers around the world

Cole said the tribe deserves the right to determine its own future and 'not to be homogenised or changed by deliberate acculturation'
