Approximately 38 craft stalls from rural communities, ethnic groups and projects sell Namibian handicraft here, which range from jewellery to carved tree roots. We have the freshest Namibian food and best cheesecake and apple crumble in town! Our Craft Cafe is known all over the world for its stylish and excellent food. We support Namibian micro and small enterprises, and contribute to increase income through the sale of Namibian craft. Over 4,000 producers and their families derive an income from sales of their craft. We support Namibian design and product development, which is reflected in our large range of unique and quality products. We encourage the use of environmentally friendly products and sustainable utilization of Namibian natural resources. Vendors inside the Namibia Craft Centre may stock up to 5% of non-Namibian, but African handi-craft. No goods from outside the continent may be sold inside the Craft Centre. Some handi-craft and materials are hard to come by in Namibia, which is why we have made this concession. Staff should be able to tell you exactly the origin of most goods.

A lot to see in a small area

A lot of choice without too much walking around. There is a restaurant here which is great for lunch as well. Could spend 3-4 hours here at least.

We stopped by on our last day and it was perfect. The Cafe was lovely, and the centre itself offers crafts from across the country - perfect to pick up those bits you missed while on the road. Feels authentic, reasonably priced and with a huge range of crafts on offer to suit any budget.

The usual curios and knick-knacks, with the odd smattering of nice additions. Well worth a visit even on a Sunday as there is not much else open on a Sunday. We are South Africans and completely numb to the usual touristy rubbish, but despite this we found some nice things, and made a few purchases.

Not only for tourists - this place is amazing - friendly people - goods handmade - some really interesting ideas that the locals have. When visitors come - first place I take them to - but for me also every time an experience!
