Experience the unique flavors, sites and residents of Walvis Bay during this memorable township tour.

Depart the pier for the drive to Walvis Bay. Upon arrival, you will join your guide for a unique tour of Walvis Bay and the township of Kuisebmond. Along the way, you will learn about the history of the area, and pass by historic shops and buildings.

As you drive through Walvis Bay's bustling streets, a visit will be made to the colorful Kuisebmond Market Hall. Here, vendors offer a variety of traditional crafts, clothing and typical Namibian dishes. You will then visit a kindergarten to view a special show presented by the children, then a community center that showcases a variety of active community health and development projects.

Next, you will proceed for a visit to the Tutaleni Village. The Tutaleni Relocation project won the Dubai Award for Best Practices. During your visit, you will see how problems of overcrowding in Kuisebmond were solved by an innovative housing concept. At the Mola Mola pub, or shebeen, you will sample a buffet of traditional dishes that include mopani worms, makaka, and oshifima porridge and beans.

After this interesting excursion, during which you will gain an insight into township life, re-board your coach for the return drive to the pier.
