Opuwo is the capital of the Kunene Region of Namibia. It is also the only town of any consequence in the area and therefore an important base from which to explore the Kaokoland area and visit the nomadic Himba people. There aren’t any tourist attractions here, but as it’s the only settlement in the area where petrol and a limited supplies of groceries can be purchased, so it warrants at least a last-minute shopping trip.
