Tsumeb is a Namibian city situated on the Oshikoto region in the northern portion of the country. Tsumeb is considered the gateway to the north that leads to other nearby towns and tourist destinations. Tsumeb got its name from the old Nama word meaning Place of the Moss.
Tsumeb is a city popular for being near the Etosha National Park. The park was established in 1907 and in it one can find the Etosha Pan, which is a 130 kilometre stretch of salt pan desert. The area is normally dry but water fills it briefly in some parts of the year, attracting beautiful pelicans and flamingos.
Everything in the city is easily accessible with a car hire at Tsumeb. The town is famous for being the home of two sinkhole lakes: Lake Otjikoto and Lake Guinas. Lake Guinas is around 500 metres in diameter and is a famous diving site. Also east of the city is the largest underground lakes. This lake is considered the deepest in the world and is situated on the farming area of Harasib.
To reach this famous lake, one can take a car rental at Tsumeb and drive up to Harasib. After which, one must descend to an ancient ladder that into a cave that is lined with dolomites. This spot is a favourite among divers because of its depth. Also found in this town is Hoba, known as the world's biggest meteorite. The site is a 45-minute drive from the city.
A cheap car hire at Tsumeb will also take one to other sites such as the Tsumeb Museum, the Tsumeb Cultural Village (which is an open air museum), and the Arts and Crafts Centre, which sells local crafts as well as provides training to local artists in the city.
