Hear the children at play, smell the sidewalk barbecues, taste locally brewed beer and local food, learn to say ‘Uharapo’ and experience what is meant by ‘Ubuntu’, cheer with the locals and feel our hospitality.” Tourists visit homes, try local traditional food at a family home, and get a glimpse of the daily life in the township.
If you want to truly experience Mondesa Township in Swakopmund, you need to scratch beneath the surface, meet the local people, taste their cuisine, and share a moment in their lives. That’s just what Nande Junias of Nande Junias Explorer Tours in Swakopmund, I will ensure you do

It’s a long road ahead, but Nande isn’t deterred by that – the passion i feel for the task drives me, and meantime, tourists who visit Swakopmund, get a superb tour with way more than they bargained for…from Nande Junias’ Explorer Tours’ highly knowledgeable guides.
Am not driven by the creation of a successful business for its own sake, but for the broader community and together with Renate Epper,we began this project with far bigger aims in mind. i also own Nathalia’s Lifestyle Family Home Kitchen and catering company, an integral part of the township tour, where tourists learn to cook traditional food, eat it and enjoy the company of locals.
Twenty five percent of the fee charged benefits the community.
I lived my entire life in the township of Mondesa in Swakopmund. i was still at school when i began my career as a tour guide 15 years ago with Hata Angu Cultural Tours owned by Mr Raymond . Today, my guided township experience is legendary in the area, not just from a tourist perspective, but for the township itself too. It’s no surprise that Nande Junias Explorer Tours was announced as one of nine organizations from across Africa for the African Responsible Award 2018! These awards recognise African organisations which offer a shining example of how
