Ovamboland is the former homeland of the Ovambo people and lies just north of the Etosha Pan. Here, at only 6% of the total area of Namibia, live about one million people, nearly half of the total population! Tourism is still in its infancy here. Therefore, this region is still genuine Africa with goats, sheep and cattle on the roads. Settlements with traditional wooden huts, roadside food stalls, drink shops in shacks and buzzing markets. A few kilometers south of the town, in Olukonda, lies the Finnish Missionary Station Nakambale, which is a national monument.
