Geography and history

Opuwo is the capital town of the Kunene Province of Namibia. It is located in the North Western parts of the country and has a total population of approximately 15 000 residents. The name Opuwo means “it is enough for me” and this name was derived from what commissioner Mr. Hugo Hahn said when more land was offered to him. Pieter de Villiers of the Congress of Democrats is Opuwo’s current mayor.

The first office to be established in the area was the colonial administrator in Kaoko in 1997, which was located at the Swartbooi’s Drift on the banks of the Kunene River before the location's name was changed to Opuwo.
