The Grootfontein Triangle
in Northeast Namibia
is an upland area of unusually well-watered and fertile landscapes by comparison with the otherwise largely flat plains which surround it on all sides.
It has historically always been one of the more prosperous parts of the country thanks to its agricultural and mineral wealth. At the points of the triangle lie three towns ...
To the east is Grootfontein, a busy little farming community which stands as the gateway to the long main highway northeast across the Kalahari to the Caprivi Strip and the much lesser used dirt road east to the remote Tsumkwe
To the south is Otavi, a quiet farming community of little interest to most visitors, although there are some interesting cave systems in the area.
To the north is Tsumeb, a large town which now relies primarily on agriculture since its main copper mine closed down in 1989. From here it is only around 100km further northwest to to the eastern gate of Etosha National Park
Although our guests often traverse through this area, it is rarely necessary to stay here.Roy's Camp
