Geography and History

Rehoboth is situated about 90 km South of Windhoek, set in a dense acacia woodland of camel thorn, sweet-thorn and candle-pod acacia and several natural hot-springs. Many travellers pass through Rehoboth on their way to Sossusvlei, Hardap Dam, Fish River Canyon and on to Namibia's other main southern tourist attractions.

The main inhabitants of the town are the Baster community, the descendants of people of mixed parentage who trekked across the Orange River under their leader Hermanus van Wyk, and settled at Rehoboth in 1870.   The history of the Rehoboth Basters is recorded in the Rehoboth Museum, where their cultural heritage and archaeological finds in the area, such as an open-air burial site, are recorded.

 

Activities

Activities in Rehoboth include the Lake Oanob Resort and Game Reserve, a favoured venue for day and weekend outings for locals and tourists alike, especially bird watchers and water-sport enthusiasts.
