A great stay in Tsumeb!
This is my 4th night staying at Tsumeb Backpackers. The place is very clean and has everything you need. I did a great 2 day tour of Etosha and an interesting visit to Obili. Tsumeb is a walkable little town and the Museum is worthwhile.

Best value
Comfortable rooms, tiny pool, nice garden and good kitchen with barbecue. Breakfast has the main thing - big pot of real coffee, and sometimes little treats. Very helpful team, relaxed atmosphere. I stayed longer and came back after a tour in the surroundings
