Keetmanshoop - southern Namibia
Town Keetmanshoop is located 495 km south of Windhoek, the capital of the country. The town is one of the oldest in Namibia and effectively is a capital of the south. The original settlement named Modderfontein dates back to the early 19th century and was established due to presence of fresh water springs. In 1800s Keetmanshoop was both a mission station and a trading post. A fort was established in town in 1894 following the arrival of German settlers. Many soldiers settled in the area buying farms which lead to Keetmanshoop being a centre supporting local farming community. The railway line to Keetmanshoop and further to Luderitz was completed in 1908.
