Highlights in the Central North
This page provides an overview of activities, highlights and sights of the Central North. For the normal tourist who is rather interested broad and deserted landscapes and a rich wildlife, the Central North might not be the ideal destination. However, the interesting culture of the Ovambo people, the exciting history of the liberation struggle as well as some sights such as the Ombalantu Baobab, which is one of the largest Baobabs in Africa or the Olukonda Missionary Station including the Nakambale Museum is worth a visit.
The Nakambale Museum is situated in the former Finnish Missionary station Olukonda close to the town Ondangwa in the north of Namibia. The Museum was named after the Finnish missionary Martti Rautanen, whose nick name was „Nakambale“ . Rautanen became missionary in 1880 shortly after the missionary station was founded. He initiated the building of a church and a missionary house. Both buildings still exist.
