Browse the stalls for Namibian handicrafts at Namibia Craft Centre. Around 38 vendors sell items from rural communities, ethnic groups, and humanitarian projects all across Namibia. Choose among gifts and souvenirs ranging from jewelry to carved tree roots. The center supports Namibian small enterprises in their fight against poverty, and utilization of Namibian natural resources through eco-friendly products and sustainable production. To that end, only 10 percent of goods sold here can be from other countries, and all goods must come from the African continent. Sample fresh Namibian food, plus reputedly the best cheesecake and apple crumble in the city.

  • We pass time back there, because the product range changes constantly. Who after souvenirs for home searches will definitely find it! Even if the prices are higher than from sellers on the streets here in a cosy atmosphere and very beautiful small loading compartments loitering without (!) from vendors pushed or addressed to be.

  • Clearly, price the tourist center is aligned and in general there is nothing artistically what's not somewhere else in Namibia. But perhaps you can discover the one or other special. Price you can also negotiate. It is worth briefly to drop.

  • We had at the end of our tour is still an hour and were in the Center. Many shopping topics Namibia are covered here. But in my opinion nothing special.

  • Nice variety of different craft items and art. lots of wooden sculptures African style.
  • Fun and exciting, great place to meet new people
  • Always an experience to transfer visitors to Namibia for a glance at Namibian artwork.
  • 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.
