Min: 1 Max: 13
We visit the Christ Church, Ink Palace, Parliament Gardens, and the Old Fort. Include an optional stop at the Namibian Diamond Works, a chance to see both raw and polished diamonds, to understand the process from mining to cutting and a chance to admire one of Namibia’s most precious stone.
From the city centre we then drive to the Katutura Township. Katatura is Windhoek’s informal settlement and estimated to be home to more than two thirds of Windhoek’s 325,000 people. The township is a vibrant and exciting place to visit and a great chance to get a bit of insight into some of the more traditional Namibian cultures. It is the melting pot of Namibia where you can meet people from all 8 different cultural groups.
The tour itself visits the Penduka Women’s Centre, a non-profit organisation that teaches unskilled women new skills and enables them to support themselves. We also visit the "Single Quarters" where we can chat with the vendors at this local market as well as taste Namibian beef and other local goodies. We then take a drive through the informal area of the township to see how people live in the shanty town before returning to Windhoek.
