T he town of Otjiwarongo, a Herero word meaning ‘a good place’, is an important centre for cattle ranching. It is situated about 250 km north of Windhoek, on a slope amid undulating plains.

An interesting feature in the town is the Otjiwarongo Crocodile Ranch, where crocodiles are bred. The crocodile ranch offers additional attractions such as birds, rabbits, tortoises and snakes. Light meals, including crocodile delicacies, can be enjoyed on the patio.

The AfriCat Foundation, a non-profit organisation committed to the long-term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores, is based at Okonjima. On the road leading there, is the Rare and Endangered Species Trust (REST) headquarters, originally founded to help conserve the Cape vulture, but later expanded to support other sensitive species representing biodiversity within the land ecosystem of Namibia.

Also in the area, albeit north of Otjiwarongo, is the headquarters
of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF).
