Tsumeb is the "gateway to the north" of Namibia. It is the closest town to the Etosha National Park.
The Tsumeb Museum is a must for tourists, who are interested in Namibian history or mining activities. A visit to the Tsumeb Art & Crafts Centre is also worth it, as a variety of African artifacts are sold there and you can watch the artists while they are working.
Attractions around Tsumeb include a visit to the Bushmen cultural village in Tsintsabis, where the Hai||kom demonstrate their fascinating, traditional skills, promises to be very interesting.
You can also visit the Otjikoto Lake. The lake, which was formed when several caves collapsed, was used by the Germans in German South West Africa to drop their weapons into after their defeat during the First World War. Today the lake is a nice stop over for visitors on the way to the Etosha National Park.
A visit to one of the biggest Baobab tree north of Tsumeb is also worthwhile. This sacred tree of the Hai|kom Bushmen poses a beautiful motive for photographs. Further attractions are Lake Guinas, Dragon’s Breath and Ghaub caves.
