Opuwo is the only major town located in the Kaokoveld – a largely untouched landscape where the traditional way of life of the Herero and Himba people has been preserved. Opuwo is characterized by the clash of tradition and modernity, which is evident in the city life. Many Himba people characterize the cityscape of Opuwo. Although they mostly do not live within the city, rather in their small settlements in the interior of the Kaokoveld, they often stay here to buy and sell.
