The Mucubal people (also Mucubai, Mucabale or Mugubale) are a subgroup of the Herero people in southern Angola. Like the Masai, to whom they are said to be related, they are semi-nomadic, depending on cattle and agriculture. Their territory is in the Namib Desert, bounded by the Serra da Chela mountains to the north and Cunene River to the south.
Mucubal people typically wear little clothing, carry machetes or spears, and are renowned for their endurance, sometimes running 50 miles (80 km) in a day. Their villages typically consist of a group of huts arranged in a circle.
