We visit our one friend who works there and chat. They have an amazing rock/gem display which you can buy or jewelry for your wife or mom. They also have other interesting things to buy like belts or shirts.

Beautifull gemstones and namibian curios. A bit expensive but really worth it. Really interesting jewellery. In silver and local materials. Open on a Sunday which is nice. Most other places were closed.

I loved this shop. It had beautiful displays with various minerals and gems found in Namibia. It was fun to look through. I hadn't planned to buy anything, but I found some lovely earrings and their prices were great. A great place to buy souvenirs!

Great little gem shop on the way to Etosha. I did not know I liked gems until I came here, but I am now on the side of the converted! The owner is incredibly knowledgable, and friendly too.
