The Mucubal people are a subgroup of the Herero people in southern Angola (province Namibe), who live as semi-nomads from cattle breeding 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, the latter marking the border between Namibia and Angola.
