Just go and let them show you how the Damara people live. How they make fire or medicine of herbs and plants, how they dance and sing, how they make tools or jewelery..... It was a nice experience in a country were you visit almost only nature.

A close up encounter with what traditional Damara village life used to be like. Traditional crafts, fire starting, herbs, games, dancing demonstrated by enthusiastic locals. All in our group felt it was not to be missed. Mornings would be cooler as it was hot at noon.

It was very interesting and they do clearly indicate that it is a living museum. They do not claim that this is the way they live today, but back in time. The people were very friendly and they did it with passion. Would recommend if you pass.

This museum is very close to the rock engraving site we weren't sure if we wanted to stop but we where really glad we did. This is an initiative by young people who recreate how their elders used to live,eating,medicine,creating artefacts etc.It is dynamic and the information they provide is extremely interesting.they charge a reasonnable price and the profits go to the community.
Well worth encouraging.
