Welcome to Otjiwarongo!

‘Otjiwarongo’ means beautiful place in Otjiherero. Located in the centre of Namibia, this vibrant town serves as the gateway to the north, west, south and east of the country. It lies 250km north of the capital city Windhoek, 380km east of the port city, Walvis Bay and 600km south of Oshikango on the border with Angola. It is situated on the main road to the legendary Etosha Park, while it is also in close proximity of other popular sceneries such as the Waterberg Plateau Park and the Cheetah Conservation Fund. The town is the regional capital of the vast Otjozondjupa region, and serves as a major business and shopping hub for a number of smaller towns and the surrounding commercial farming community.

Congratulations Otjiwarongo! You have once again outdone yourself with the new website. I cans see you are still updating some pages, but it already is stunning. Very well designed. I just hope you will also keep it updated. Neville

That's one good direction for the municipality for fast development in town. This will help the government also for less spending and the town it's self not to wait long for land servercing. One more thing we need in our it's play for kids and also walking parks or parks to relax in, this is one of the healthiest environment for kids instead of playing in streets every which is very dangerous. The municipality should plan on that. One more thing is a recreation park also for adults to build outside town even at the dam or close to the mountain south of the town, this will avoid parents not to drink alcohol at home. Many youth is influence by their parents to start drinking, thinking is a good thing since parents are doing it. I wish all the best for my town. Much love.Keep our town clean

Thats really good idea for that new locations. I am very happy for Otjiwarongo municipality, another think is that it will be better if you build other clinic in Ombili or in freedom park. Just a tip of advice.
