    This is definitely a one stop and shop place. A massive range of local flare and I think, independent owners. Who ever is controlling the stock allowed, they're doing a fantastic job. A nice safe envi...  more »

    Great local art and a super Cafe. You can park directly with your own vehicle in the courtyard and go through the shops. It is much cheaper than at all other places here much easier to buy things for at home. There's even a package service to the whole world.

    The Namibia craft centre is an insider tip for all who want to kill some time before the return flight - or who have not all gifts together! The Centre offers art objects from all regions at really zivlien prices! No comparison with street vendors such as in Okahandja. Fun at the end of the holiday again the regions to go through, which you visited and still makes a or others to take. Then in the craft Café, before one is on the way to the airport.
