Gobabis (B 7)

Name: Gobabis

Gobabis is situated in eastern Namibia, only one and a half hours drive from Windhoek International Airport - a true camel-thorn tree and yellow oak savannah.

Capital Town of the Omeheke Central Eastern Region of Namibia, Gobabis lays on the western edge of the Kalahari Desert 200km east of Windhoek at approx 22 degrees 27' longitude 19 degrees 05' east. The San-Bushmen were the original inhabitants of this land that was rich in game. Then came the Tswana and the Oorlam who by 1845 had several permanent settlements in the area. The Wesleyan missionary Joseph Tyndall established a mission station here in August 1845.
