Important, informative and positive experience of visiting the townships in Swakopmund
Aug 2018 • Family
This tour is both historically fascinating (the townships were set up in apartheid times) and in terms of contemporary Namibia. Far from 'poverty tourism' Nande's trip gives you a real insight into the vibrancy of the townships around Swakopmund and the communities that live there. Nande is super cool and an excellent guide and we enjoyed the opportunity to walk around, chat to people, enjoy a local breakfast and particularly to listen to an amazing local a capella group. We were a small mixed group of adults and teenagers and for everyone this was a highlight of our Namibia trip.

Future of Namibia
The township tour we (family of 4) with Nande was one of the highlights of our Namibian holiday. Nande took us through the swakopmund township meanwhile giving lots of background information. Meeting and talking to the people of his neighbourhood is something you must not miss! Very impressive.
