Must visit to have a real taste of the local dish - kapana. We couldn't find it on the menu of other restaurants we went to so we were told Katutura was the place to go. Very informal and the meat is tasty, best eaten with "chakalaka" - tomatoes and onions spiced.
This place unlike townships in other countries is safe to explore and engage with the local population. There are several places to catch a drink and enjoy time mingling and often there is a car wash or braai spot very close to you. Many places serve the local food. Try out the local Kapana. Worth a try while there.
With lots of things to see and do please, visit the meat market in the Single Quarters and get a taste of the famous Kapana meat and meet people from all walks of life. Continue on to Eveline Street (the street that never sleeps) where business is open 24 hours be it a shebeen, or a car wash. On the... 更多
I got to visit this little suburb outside of Windhoek. I went with a local to see a local. I was very out of my white boy element. No one bothered me but the threat was there.
If you want to see "the people" of Namibia go to Katutura. I have been to Soweto Market and Single quarters. These places are a hive of activity. This is where you can find Kapana (meat freshly roasted while you wait). The spices are out of this world. You get a wide variety of meat choices. You may want to... 更多
Windhoek is the rich and Katutura is the slums. You see how people live in corroded steel huts with no running water or electricity. Yet these people have a secret joy in their hearts. It broke our hearts to see the squalor but the people are so alive. It is really worth the trip to see.
The taxi driver had to ask directions to get to the totally unmarked spot to be dropped off. The van showed up and it took a couple of hours for the packing of the trailer and enough people to show up. The surrounding houses were typical of a township in Africa, full of people coming and going. Had no problem... 更多
A must see in Nambia. The people are very kind, food is great on the local markets and you get a sense of daily life in Nambia. It is good to the the real side of Namibia and not only the tourist spots.
I love "kapana" roasted/braai meat, it is worth to try tasting "Kapana" at the Meat Market at the Single Quarters. The "Kapana" sellers are good at it, even if you are not in the mood of buying you will be tempted and may end up buying from three to four stalls, because they just know how to market.
