To the Ovahimba community who welcomed me into their lives, shared their ways with me and accepted the uninvited guest I was in their midst.
To the Tjambiru of Etanga who adopted me as a member of the family.
To the men and women of the Kunene Region who provided me with their rarest resource of all, water, during the seven years of my stay.
To those men who stopped to change the flat tyres of my 4x4 when I was stuck along the deserted roadsides of the Kunene Region.
With my gratitude to those friends and acquaintances who are not already mentioned as sponsors of The Ovahimba Years project or in other capacities, but who where always there quietly to provide help, advice, a bed or a cup of coffee behind the scenes.
