Geography and history

Aus is a small village situated in the Karas region of Namibia.  This village is most notable for its unpredictable weather and its history as a Prisoner of War camp.

When the German colonial troops surrendered to the South African forces in 1915, a camp for the prisoners of war was set up a few kilometres outside of Aus.

Aus’s weather can be extreme, very cold in winter and hot in the summer.  It is also unpredictable – which stems from its proximity to the Cape.

Accommodation

Aus, although small, has a variety of accommodation options available to visitors from Bed and Breakfasts to a Hotel. Please view our accommodation directory for a complete list of places to stay in the area.

Activities and attractions

Aus and surrounds offers many interesting activities and attractions. There is something to do for every member of the family. This includes a new museum, which should encourage more visitors to stop and discover something about an area that is all too often ignored. 

At the entrance to this village is a modern Information Centre and is one of the few information centres in Namibia that opens at weekends, and is well worth a visit.

Some things to do in the area:

  • Visit the observation shelter to spot the Feral horses at Garub
  • Hiking and Biking

Businesses

Please go to our business directory for a full list of all the businesses you can find in the region, including restaurants.
