Omajowa termite hill mushrooms Namibia



Termite hill mushrooms (Species of Termitomyces), a variety of edible fungi found in Namibia, also known as Omajowa, are the most well known in Namibia. They occur only during the rainy season and can be found in large quantities between Oshivelo and Tsumeb in Oshikoto region, to the east of Etoshapan. Farm workers do collect them and bring them to the roadside for sale. Although the price is not a fixed one, it varies between N$5 - 10 per kg. Another mushroom species found in Namibia is Kalahari truffle. Both of these species are delicious and are served in formal restaurants and lodges. In rural areas, people collect these mushrooms which replace meat in many meals.
