Mondesa Guided Tour
At the arranged time the guide will pick you up from your hotel in Swakopmund and set off on the tour of the Mondesa neighbourhood. On this tour we'll find out about the inhabitants of this suburb and what the influence the apartheid regime had on the area.
Mondesa was the suburb black citizens were banished to during the apartheid regime whilst white wealthy folk dominated the city. Although the racial segregation system was abolished in 1991, we can still see remnants of Mondesa's history today.
We'll explore the streets of Mondesa and get lost in its culture, meeting the locals and discovering their local delicacies. They may even offer you one of their artisan beers and typical dishes, including mopane worms (caterpillars of the emperor butterfly), a specitality of the area. During the visit we'll give you some traditional snacks to try so you can completely immerse yourself in the culture.
Meeting the locals will give you a real feel for African culture and history. You'll even learn some words in the local language, khoe-khoe, as well as the meaning of the term Ubuntu and why it became so important in Africa.
