Lots of great crafts for sale here! I bought a few things to bring home. I also highly recommend walking around Windhoek for many more artisans selling their wares out on the streets. Street vendors will negotiate prices, artisans at the Craft Centre have fixed prices.

Well stocked, true Namibian crafts. Rather visit without children, might be bored. Nice coffee shop to relax.

A number of merchants in one location. All items are made in Namibia. Numerous wood animals of all sizes, bowls, wooden forks and spoons, woven baskets, needlework, printed fabrics, jewelry, beadwork, paintings, musical instruments, books and just about anything else you can think of. Prices are reasonable. If you intend to shop for folk art and crafts or souvenirs in... More

Food is served on a balcony or inside the craft centre. The food is excellent, imaginative, beautifully presented and with so many vegetarian and vegan choices. This was the only time in Namibia I found tofu. Juices and drinks were also different. Highly recommended for lunch or just a snack. We were too full to indulge in the gorgeous looking... More

A quiet and friendly environment to explore the variety of Namibian crafts. Coffee shop on premises to relax and reflect on the variety of crafts you have seen. If you can't explore the country and find these crafts at their source this is a great alternative.

This is a lovely place to spend some time. There is a vast array of crafts on display - many of them made in South Africa, rather than Namibia so check your labels. Best thing here is the cafe where they serve some lovely meals. The apple crumble is fabulous. I'd been told about that by just about everyone I... More

The Craft Centre, offers a unique experience for a day in the heart of Windhoek. Unlike contemporary stores, the Craft Centre displays local works of art in a variety of media and typically Namibian souvenirs and keepsakes. The staff are also friendly locals indigenous locals. To top it off the wonderful coffee shop serves delicious hearty slices of cake!
