Cattle farming capital of eastern Namibia


Snugly located in the heart of a flourishing cattle farming area, the small town of Gobabis is located on the Trans-Kalahari highway, a 2hr drive from Botswana’s Buitepos Border post. Often touted as Namibia’s ‘little Texas’, the Gobabis residents relish their nickname and local industry to such an extent that a sign brandished with the words ‘Cattle Country’ below a large bull statue welcomes visitors into town.

With its roots in the German Rhenish Missionary Society, like so many other Namibian towns, Gobabis’ museum on the fringes of the town harbour vintage agricultural tools and historical artefacts of local importance. Visitors can enjoy a historical tour of the town, a Harnas Wildlife, elephant and rhino tour or even a guided hiking trail in the surrounding wilderness. The helpful Gobabis Tourism office is readily on hand to supply visitors with any information they’d like to know.

Gobabis is the perfect stop along the way for those making use of the Trans-Kalahari corridor. With varied accommodation options, several activities to entertain you while you’re in town and a number of shops, restaurants, bars and petrol stations, visitors couldn’t want for more while making their way along to their next destination.
