Ombu is situated about 40 kilometres south of Otjiwarongo, and hosts the history, heritage and culture of the Ovaherero people in the form of a living museum. The traditional homestead consists of nine houses showing original designs and building methods. A tour through these houses demonstrates how the Ovaherero lived traditionally, collected and prepared food and manufactured their perfumes and clothes.
The learners were in awe of the static museum, which showcases artefacts, exhibitions and statues. They also milked goats, went for a ride on a donkey cart and were treated to traditional vetkoek before leaving.
This tactile interactive environment was the ultimate learning experience and the group enjoyed their visit to Ombu village immensely.
