Township Tour

a guided self drive tour through Katutura

It's time to let go of the formal trips in Namibia to the usual Windhoek establishments. Broaden your horizons and take a guided tour of the vibrant streets of Katutura in your own vehicle. The Food, Culture & Adventure Tour is an interesting and rewarding morning or afternoon out through this culturally and historically rich township. Eat and drink, barter and buy and thoroughly enjoy 'the place where no one wants to live' where not everyone lives in 'shiny' houses. A better understanding of how this side of Windhoek operates should not be missed.

Pre-arrange a pick-up time for your guide to meet you at your accommodation in Windhoek for not later than 14h00. The duration of trip is about 2.5hrs and your guide will keep you informed and entertained throughout. The guide comes highly recommended: you won't get lost and they know all the good and safe spots in this generally welcoming township!!! Itinerary (not necessarily in this order):
  • Soweto Market: Popular and interesting area of Katutura.
  • Eveline Street/Wanaheda: Vibrant and lively areas both day and night.
  • Habitat Research & Development Centre: An insight into the central information resource centre which focuses on housing and related matters.
  • Local Traditional Restaurant: A lunch/dinner can be arranged at own expense. Great meat at the Kapana area and is baked sheep's head on the menu today!
  • Tour of Penduka/Katutours: The daily lives of local women who produce and sell beautiful Namibian handcrafts.
