Großartige Tour mit tollem Guide. Auf jeden Fall eine tolle Alternative wenn man in Swakopmund schon alles gesehen hat!

Eine sehr interessante Tour, um einen guten Einblick in die Township-Struktur und das Leben dort zu bekommen. Unser Guide Nico hat alles bestens erklärt. Zum Abschluss noch afrikanisches Essen mit A Capella-Gesang. Absolut empfehlenswert!
