Earlier this year, Sussan Mourad travelled with the World Nomads film crew to explore Namibia.
The highlight of the trip was the day spent visiting a nomadic Himba tribe deep in the heart of Namibia. While apprehensive at first, Sussan managed to connect with the women of the tribe despite language and cultural barriers.
After speaking extensively about the Himba women's unique beauty regime of applying ochre and fat to their skin, Sussan asks if she too can try out the treatment.
Watch as Sussan is transformed from traveller to tribal woman -- and see how the women of the tribe react to her new look.
*Note: Being invited into a Himba village and being dressed like a Himba woman is not a common occurance in Namibia and certainly is not a tourist attraction.

Climbing up the famous dunes of Swakopmund with her instructors (and professional sand boarders) from Hata Angu Cultural Tours, she finds herself just a bit out of her comfort zone.
Watch as Sussan goes from gliding down the bunny slopes to tackling the 'Big Mamma' of the dunes -- and (spoiler alert!) the wipeout that ensues.
This film was produced by Alicia Smith and directed by Jesse Perez for Worldnomads.com. Cinematography by Peter Teys. Additional Camera by Jesse Perez.
