10 Most Famous African Tribes (The Original Africans)

Rich with traditions that survived thousands of years, these African tribes are an explorers dream


Namibia Himba Tribe

A hidden gem of Namibia, Himba is rooted in deep tradition as it continues to steer clear of modernization in an age where “Western” ideals are gaining popularity. Many of the Himba are settled in an area known as Kaokoland; with a population just less than 50,000, the Himba are famous and thus a part of the list.

Many of the Himba embrace and have held onto their culture through their appearances. Whether hair, clothing, or jewelry, the Himba display their elegant style and ornate designs as they would in the past.

  1. This is an interesting list that you have! I enjoyed reading through it. Might I add another tribe? The Hadzabe Tribe of Tanzania are an interesting group of people. They don’t have permanent homes but move from one place to another and live off the land. They also have their own unique language known as “clicking”. I think having their own language alone would be evidence of how old the tribe has existed. And the fact that within the tribe there is no leader and everyone’s status is equal. I think that’s a rather progressive view of things to have. Don’t you think they’re an interesting tribe to meet? They’re one of the few tribes I would love to visit when I travel to Africa.
