  8. 8. Namibia Namibia culture and customs are a blend of many different peoples and cultures, similar in some respects to the 'rainbow' nation next door. Home to the Bushmen, the oldest inhabitants of southern Africa as well as to the more recently arrived Europeans, Namibia's culture and customs have absorbed both African and European elements and fused them into a blend of the two. The Herero and the Owambo, no longer just poorly paid migrant labourers, represent the backbone of modern Namibia
