Tourism

Region has particular tourist potential. Considering the natural access to the Naukluft Park and Sossus Vlei via Mariental or via Rehoboth, the greater (southern) part of the Namib Naukluft Park has been included in this area. Rehoboth is seen as an important growth point in the Region, especially in the northern part. As such it can make an important contribution to the overall development of the Region. The whole Region has a well developed infrastructure

The tourism sector also got a new face-lift with new developments at Lake Oanob in the Rehoboth district. These developments in the region have positive spin-offs for the economy in the form of new employment opportunities and increased revenue streams and foreign exchange earnings. Efforts would continue on the part of the government to encourage the private sector to invest in the region in order to revive economic activities and create the much-needed employment opportunities in towns and settlements in the region.
