Well, if you have time on your hands, this is a short drive out of town. It’s a good walk, when you are there, up the hill to the viewing point. Lacking in formation on the heros and what they did, cost is N$40 per...More

The setting reminded me somewhat of the Voortrekker Museum in Pretoria, RSA. Great view of Windhoek from the hillside monument. The murals & statues and some builidings are banal kitschy North Korean styled and out of sync with its surroundings and the country's history. Our...More

Worth a visit as it's been built by North Korea - yes North Koreans! Respect paid to important heroes of Namibia!

This monument had very little to offer for what you pay for. There is an obelisk with Sam Nujoma, the father of the nation. The mausoleum was closed. The restaurant was closed. There was more to see and experience from other free places than this...More

10kms out of town. Taxi was $60 return off the street. Guesthouse were asking $250. Entrance fee for myself, taxi and taxi driver was $48. Not a lot there but worth a quick look if you are passing or have some time to kill
