Farm Omandumba Omaruru
meaning the Bitterbush place - is a typical Namibian farm in the Erongo
region, 50 km southwest of Omaruru at the northwestern edge of the Erongo
mountains, along the D 2315.
Here you can enjoy the daily farm life - great fun for your kids among cattle, goats, chicken, dogs and cats. The fascinating Erongo landscape provides fantastic opportunities for explorations on the farm, nature drives and interesting excursions to historical rock paintings, rock climbing and hiking.

Since 2 years you can visit the Ju/Hoansi Living Museum on the Omandumba West farm - due to the increasing number of visitors open throughout the whole year. The museum has developed into a very attractive activity in the Erongo mountains. A little bushman baby was born here in May 2010. The Living Museum gives visitors an interesting insight into their traditional culture and the original way of San living.
It is an educational institute - a combination of school and museum - where guests may interact in the activities as the Ju/Hoansi show their skills in arrow making and arrow shooting, learn how to make fire, jewellery and traditional medicine.
Visitors may join them on a hunting or gathering trip and experience their songs and tribal dances. It will be a day to remember! The income of the museum and the money of the souvenir sale is used for school purposes, to buy clothing, blankets etc.
