A good place to visit. Apart from the Lake with it's unusual geological feature - it is into this lake that the Germans dumped the Kaiser's Cannons in 1915. There's a small zoo, restaurant and lots of interesting collections at this site.

 

 

 TM   Tsumeb Museum: This is at the eastern end of the Main Street. The majority of self drive tourists don't know about the Museum and pass it by, and it really is a 'Must See'.   This is where you can see some of the Kaiser's Cannons that were  recovered from Lake Otjikoto and refurbished by the Old TCL Mine. There is also an excellent mineral sample collection from the TCL MIne De Wet Shaft plus many other items of interest.


 14    Gaub Cave Recommended pre-bookings for the guided tour. . The cave is not 'tourist friendly', so be prepared for some rock hopping. Not for the Claustrophobic and good boots are a must.

It's difficult to find the memorial as some of the streets in Otavi have no signs, so make use of the Map of Otavi. Once over the railway track, turn right.
