Tiny Outjo, Namibia, is one of the gateway towns to Etosha National Park. Despite being close to the park and that a large number of people visit the park, Outjo doesn't get too many overnighters. It is a quiet, typically Namibian small town, and -- particularly for those making their own way to Etosha -- it's a lovely little place to spend a day or two en route to Etosha.

Outjo is just over three hundred kilometers north of Windhoek, Namibia's capital, and seventy kilometers along the B1 from Otjiwarongo, the nearest major city on the road from Windhoek. At Outjo, the road splits. The C39 goes west to Khorixas and east to Otavi; the C40 goes north-west to Kamanjab and the C38 goes north, to the western entrance to Etosha National Park at Anderson Gate, just over a hundred kilometers north.

Outjo itself doesn't really have many tourist attractions, but there is a museum that is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Outjo, Franke House, which was constructed in at the very end of the nineteenth century. The Naulila Monument commemorates the massacre of German soldiers and officials by the Portuguese near Fort Naulila on the Kunene River in Angola more than a century ago. It also commemorates soldiers later killed under Major Franke, who were sent to avenge the earlier battle.
