Top 5 Things to do in Tsumeb, Namibia

February 21, 2018 Lashaunda Abraham

Tsumeb (Otjiherero name: Okavisume) is a city of 15,000 inhabitants and the largest town in Oshikoto region in northern Namibia. Tsumeb is the "gateway to the north" of Namibia. It is the closest town to the Etosha National Park. Tsumeb used to be the regional capital of Oshikoto until 2008 when Omuthiya was proclaimed a town and the new capital. The area around Tsumeb forms its own electoral constituency and has a population of 44,113. The town is the site of a deep mine (the lower workings now closed), that in its heyday was known simply as "The Tsumeb Mine" but has since been renamed the Ongopolo Mine.

Tsumeb Museum

Reviewed By Horst S - Cape Town Central, South Africa

Namibia does not have many museums and this one (next to Swakopmund and nearby Grootfontein) is a must! This is a private initiative featuring history from the mineral-rich surrounding, cultural exhibits and exhibits from the colonial era (especially the German - South African conflict in the First World War..... Support them!

A craft center operated by a charitable trust selling folk art and crafts of the San as well as other people of Namibia. Wood and bead animal figures of all sizes, needlework, printed fabrics, bowls, jewelry and numerous other craftwork at extremely reasonable prices. A very friendly staff who allow you to shop without pressure The best selection of folk art and crafts that my wife and I found during our vacation in Namibia. A must for anyone who is interested in Namibian folk art.

Otjikoto Lake

Reviewed By Shaun S - South Africa

A N$10 parking fee and ND$25 to enter.
This sink-hole caused by collapsing underground caves could be a major draw card for the area. Unfortunately there is no information about it at the site, besides one signboard informing you a a few artillery weapons and arms still in the lake.
Your best bet for information is to Google it.
Some one at some time did try to improve a visitors experience, but now the buildings are old, and the foot path around the sink-hole almost invisible and lost in the undergrowth.
Yes, it is worth it. For the price, maybe not at the moment. But if you do go, try get information beforehand so that walking around you can experience it better.
Wiki has an interesting short article on Otjikoto Lake.
