i-con2 Okakarara / Otjondzupa : Travel Information and Accommodation
Okaepe Living Museum

Mrs. Rukero's project has the purpose to support the school in Okaepe and the rather poor community.

On offer are guided tours of the village, theatre and dance performances by pupils and teachers, visits to school classes, demonstrations of the making of sour milk, cattle breeding, participation in a traditional wedding ceremony, Holy Fire ceremony and much more. Many opportunities to chat with the very friendly and communicative villagers. And encounters with the San (Bushman) culture including a visit to a San settlement are also possible.

All tours and demonstrations are conducted in English. The fees are very moderate. They go directly to the benefit of the community. A visit should be booked in advance with Mrs. Rukero.
