Otjikoto Lake

Lake Otjikoto is 24 km north of Tsumeb, well signposted off the B1, open daily sunrise to sunset. Lake Otikoto is set back 100m from the main road amongst the trees, but it is well signposted. when the sun shine the water looks very blue and clear. It is possible to climb down to the lake shore via a rock stairway; this is not encouraged and swimming is forbidden. Just before you reach the lake there is another turning on the right, the D 3043. If you follow this for 19 km and then a turn onto the D3031 you will find yourself beside Lake Guinas. It is clearly signposted, but the site has not been develop. There is no easy access to the lake shore as the sides are precipitous. If you are able to visit Lake Guinas in May you will see it at its best surrounded by flowering aloes on the rock faces. The rusty remains of a large steam pump lie nearby, a legacy of efforts in the 1920s to irrigate local citrus orchards. Both the lakes lie on private farms and as you can imagine, they are popular with scuba divers. This is a very complex form of diving and should not be attempted by inexperienced divers.
