Gentle bike ride around areas you probably will never learn about on your own. Our guide, Silas, was a combination of extremely knowledgable, professional and passionate. A very inspiring guide. Apart from 'sharing the local experience' it's the trip where you need your camera to be fully charged before you set off! Would like to give it more than five... More

Our excellent and friendly guide, Silas, led this tour of the neighborhoods of Katatura. We cycled from stop to stop and Silas would give us interesting information about the history of the area, the current political situation, and point out interesting sights. The pace of the tour was relaxed and the emphasis was on understanding the daily experiences of the... More

If you spend more than one day in Windhoek, this is a very good tour to experience and witness how locals live. In addition, Anna makes it very entertaining and shows you a different perspective about life in Windhoek and Namibia.

My wife and I cycled around Katutura ( the Soweto equivalent of Windhoek ) guided by Anna ( who set the cycling venture up ) and her nephew Elliot. It was an eye-opening experience and quite wonderful. We felt totally safe on the roads, enjoyed the bike ride, and had some great conversations, particularly with children who fancied the bikes....

You can't experience namibia by only visiting safari tours and sightseeing. On my trip to Namibia which was organized safari tour I caught only a part Namibia which was its beautiful nature and wildlife, but no real interaction with the Namibian people. The tour offers an encounter with the true face of namibia. It let you have a more detailed... More

We met Anna who is the owner of katu tours and I was moved by her passion to make a change for women in Namibia and show tourists the other side of life here. Both she and her nephew Elliot were very knowledgeable and it was a very important part of our stay here. We learned a lot and got... More

You get to meet local people and experience a small bit of what life is like in Katatura as Anna shares her... More

I did this tour with my teenage girls and another family. It was great - Anna, the tour guide and owner of Katutours is super friendly and motivated and knows lots of information and stories about Katutura and Namibian people. And we visited the interesting places such as markets. Doing this by bike together with Anna felt absolutely safe, too.

Spending the afternoon cycling through the Katutura Township with Anna was the highlight of our time in Namibia. Anna was able to give us an indepth understanding of the dynamics of the culture and lifestyle of people living in Windhoek. Visiting the markets with her was also great fun for our two children as well. We thoroughly enjoyed cycling with... More

This is a completely holistic education on the history and current day of Katutura township. You will learn, see, smell, taste and enjoy. Anna is a sweetheart with passion and ambition for this location. Ask her for guidance to the local dams. They are well worth a visit. Give yourself as much time as possible on this easy going cycle.... More
