In the region around Okangwati, pastoralism is the dominant economic activity. As a part of the former Kaokoland, its integration into the South African system was less extensive than that of Fransfontein. Even now, labour migration plays a secondary role in the area; most of the inhabitants of this part of Kunene are Ovahimba, who are still only marginally linked to labour and sales markets.
