Okahandja

About the area

Known as Namibia’s “garden town”, Okahandja will leave you recharged, relaxed and gratified by the hospitality of the people that occupy it. The town's rich history, dating back to the 1800s, is rooted in the native Herero group of Namibia. Okahandja is still of great cultural significance to the Herero, as it is the burial place of many great leaders.
