Keetmanshoop

Font Size Increase Font Size Decrease Print Page Send to Friend Add to Favorites

Keetmanshoop is the administrative centre of a very large farming area. Due to the semi-arid climate karakul farming is predominant, but ostrich meat has also become and increasingly important commodity. One big plant with breeding and slaughtering facilities as well as a tannery is situated a few kilometers out of town to Lüderitz.

History

Originally, Keetmanshoop was a Nama settlement. In 1866 the Rhenish Mission Society, with headquarters in Barmen in Germany, chose this site for establishing a mission station. It was named Keetmanshoop (‘Keetman’s hope’) after a wealthy German merchant, Johann Keetman, who generously supported the mission station financially without ever seeing it himself.
