Mucawona tribe in Angola
Published on Jun 7, 2014
We are an Angolan Tour Operator. We would like to make a presentation of the Southern part of Angola, where is possible to combine two types of Tours, one with ” The Tribes ” you can find around Lubango, going to the South of Angola all along the border to Namibia, and one with ” The Ocean Coast” where you can travel between Namibe and Foz de Cunene.
Of course, we can put together tailor-made tours based on these suggestions; we can start or finish in Lubango, or Namibe, or Windhoek in Namibia or from the border with Namibia.We suggest that you consider a minimum of 12 or 15 days to get a good idea of this area.
We also have a long experience in assistance for geological prospecting in all Angola. We can provide you the invitation letter for your Embassy to obtain the tourism visa.
Angola is a friendly and safe country.
Health: yellow fever is requested.
Best season: april – may to october-november
Highlights of Southern Angola
Oasis of Arco :
Discover the beauty and the tranquility of this deep-blue coloured lake, with its amazing rock formations and a wide variety of birds.
Namib Desert :
The oldest desert on earth, from Tombua to Walvis Bay in Namibia, you will discover a unique to the region plant, the Welwitchia Mirabilis, looking like a giant symbol of resistance. You will also admire the spectacular scenery of the dunes, so close to the coast, and that inspire respect.
Relax on white sand beaches, or go fishing or diving and explore the huge diversity of marine life while you catch oysters, clams, mussels and fresh fish directly from the sea for your dinner.
Baia dos Tigres and Foz de Cunene :
The road is very narrow between high dunes and the Ocean, only praticable during the spring tides. You will pass the Isthmus, now the Island of Baia dos Tigres, where whales, dolphins, seals, green turtles, jackals, gemsbok and brown hyenas can be found. You will reach Foz de Cunene for a swim in the fresh and clean waters of the River, and you will enjoy a fine meal at night under the stars.
Iona National Park :
This Park is situated about 200Kms south of the city of Namibe, in the area of Espinheira. You can find there animals like oryx, zébras, ostriches, jackals, springboks, and dik dik. Before the war it was the land of elephants, leopards, lions, and impalas.
Maybe in the future they will reintroduce these specimens from neighbouring countries like Namibia, Botswana and South Africa. You will cross a thorny Savannah, dry and sandy riverbeds, and will really be in the Angolan bush, where you will enjoy the vast and yellow plains with its fascinating sunrises and sunsets. Here is the gateway to the Muhimba, Mucawona and Mudhimba tribes.
Pediva hot Springs :
Another oasis in the desert, a nice place for camping near the hot springs and the fresh water of the Curoca river. You will find the remains of an old German elephant hunter’s lodge at the top of the hill.
A nice walk to discover the prehistoric rock paintings on the top of the hill or inside the rocks.It becomes more and more difficult to find them because the big difference between night and day temperatures destroys the surface of the rocks.
Some circles could be the representation of the sun, the moon; some figures could be men, giraffes, antelopes, birds, fish or wild animals. This site could be dated at 2600 years old, but other sites could be around 20 000 years old.
In this area the Mucuval tribe can be found.
The Plateau and Province of Huila :
We reach the fertile Central Plateau around Lubango town, by a very nice and spectacular road “The Serra da Leba Pass”. Here we are in the land of the Mwila and Mugambwe tribes.
The Tribes :
Province of Huila : Mwila and Mugambwe
Province of Namibe : Mucuval and Mucuroca
Province of Kunene : Muhimba, Mudhimba and Mucawona
We invite you to enjoy our photos and videos about them.

Fully equipped kitchens
Tents for one or two people, with beds, sheets, mattresses, sleeping bags and pillows
Fridges for food and beverages in the cars

Warriors of the Sea, Dances of Love | Tribes – Planet Doc Full Documentaries
Documentary “Warriors of the Sea, Dances of Love”
Though the dances contain elements of magic, not all are performed for religious reasons. Among the inhabitants of the Trobriand islands, there are a number of dances simply for pleasure, performed at special celebrations, or as a kind of courtship ritual. The nearly naked girls perform sexy dances.
Each step has a particular symbolism. All the movements correspond to a specific wish, which is interpreted by the matchmakers. They are performed after the yams have been harvested.
The naked girls paint their faces with the symbols of their families and clans. These serve to identify them.
In this way, the men of their own clan will turn their attention to other girls who they will be able to marry for these people are exogamous.
The courtships end with the arrival of the rains.
By that time, the matchmakers will have decided which couples can marry the next year, after having received the approval of their parents and the council of ancients, who will determine the price of the dowries and on what terms these are to be paid.
The people of the islands are very different from those of Papua New Guinea. Though they belong to the same country, their customs have nothing in common.
Papua New Guinea is enormous, and there are stills tribes who live entirely isolated in the interior. In the highlands, the first contacts with white men took place very recently, just 50 years ago.
On the islands, things were very different. European sailors arrived there much earlier, and today cultural influences have been absorbed to a much greater extent.
Something they greatly value, as well as the betel, is tobacco. This is prepared in a very rudimentary way. The leaves, dried in caves, are smoked in pipes, or wrapped to make cigarettes. Tobacco is also used in rituals, it is a liturgical element. Its smell attracts the spirits.
In Rabaul, they still use the sell mony or traditional currency, which they call tambu. They are small shells threaded together to make necklaces of a particular value.
These shells are very difficult to find. The measure used for each necklace is equivalent to the number of shells that fit in a small beer bottle. Each necklace has around three hundred shells. Each group of ten necklaces makes up a loloi, which has the value of thirty kinas, the official currency of the country.

Please check out our recent articles on the Huaorani Indians, the “Warriors of the Amazon” and on the Yanomami Indians, “The Fierce People.”
Recently, pictures of naked uncontacted Amazon Indians have made headlines worldwide.
Some of these newspaper reports have been controversial and confusing, hence we have added several articles to help clarify and summarize what is known about these nude uncontacted Amazon tribes.
Please refer to our new articles on “Uncontacted Amazon Indians in Peru,” and “Uncontacted Amazon Tribe: The Cabellos Largos” to learn more about indigenous Amazonian natives living in voluntary isolation from the rest of the world.
To learn about the most recently contacted tribe in the Amazon, please see our new essay on the Korubo Indians, also known as the “Caceteiros” or “Head-Bashers.”
The Korubo Indians have been described in the news as a nude tribe living in voluntary isolation, with all the members of their tribe still living naked in the jungle.
In addition, Amazon-Indians.org has the great honor of exclusively publishing for the first time on the Internet, the historic photographs taken by Amazon explorer and photographer, Chuck Clark.
During the 1960s, Clark captured images of many indigenous Amazonian communities, who until that time, were uncontacted tribes, living in voluntary isolation from the Western world.
