Tsumeb is a city in Oshikoto region of Namibia. It is close to Otavi and Grootfontein.

Get in

Tsumeb is located at the intersection of the B1, heading northeast from Otjiwarongo and the C42.

Many minibuses go between Windhoek and Tsumeb N$220.

Get around

Downtown is compact and easy to walk. However, to get to the cultural center at the entrance to the town, a car would be advisable. Parking is free. Voluntary carguards will look after your car.


The downtown is pleasant and functional. Do see the Tsumeb Arts and Crafts Centre. This is a joint project developed with support from Norway. There are reconstructed homes from various parts of Namibia. If the full plan is implemented, it will have typical homes from all major tribal groups in Namibia as well as people demonstrated the life of that group. Many of the prototypical homes have been constructed, but the place is often empty.

Nearby is Lake Otjikoto. Although small, it is the largest natural lake in Namibia.

Off the road to Grootfontein is a turn-off for the Hoba Meteorite.
