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.

  • This is a great spot in Windhoek for locals but especially for tourists. All the arts and crafts you can imagine can be found here!
  • Undoubtedly, the place offers a variety of beautiful souvenirs and local craftworks, but to our big surprise, they were really pricey! Instead, one can buy similarly beautiful stuff in much lower prices in the souvenir shops of lodges and farms during the road trip around Namibia (e.g. Klein-Aus Vista Lodge and Canyon Farm Yard). Also, if you want to buy liquor or spices, better go directly to the big supermarkets!
