When you stop for a break in Outjo, take a few minutes to walk through this shop and browse their gems and souvenirs. Interesting and friendly people too.

Beautifull gemstones and namibian curios. A bit expensive but really worth it. Really interesting jewellery. In silver and local materials. Open on a Sunday which is nice. Most other places were closed.
