Nama culture is an important part of Namibia’s heritage; some 60,000 Namibians consider themselves to be of Nama descent. The Nama are known for their music, dance, storytelling, and distinctive Khoikhoi clicking language, and there are plenty of opportunities learn more about their traditions while traveling in Namibia. Here are five ways to start. 

  • Visit Mondesa, a suburb of the city of Swakopmund, and tour a community market, school, and family home.
  • Sample traditional Namibian cuisine  such as omakunde (beans), ondhwa (barbequed chicken), and omagungu (dried mopane worms).
  • Shop for traditional clothing and colorful handicrafts at a local market. 
  • Learn about Namibia’s various cultures—Nama, Herero, Damara, and San—during a visit to the Democratic Resettlement Community. 
  • Meet a Nama chief and hear about the culture’s ancient customs, traditional medicine, and spiritual beliefs.
