Outjo, meaning place on the rocks or little/cone shaped hills, is a town situated in Northern Namibia that is set between low hills of the Ugab valley. This eroded valley has spectacular rock formations and consists mostly of woodland, bushveld and savannah vegetation.
This small town is mostly known as a stopover for travellers on their way to the Etosha National Park, the Skeleton Coast, Damaraland or the Koakoveld. Outjo has much more to offer other than being just a stopover town. Some the big attractions include the Naulila Monument, the Water Tower, Franke Haus Museum, Ugab Rock Ringer, Petrified Forest and of course, the Etosha National Park.
Next time you approach this area, don’t just drive by. Stay and explore Outjo.
