Welcome to the Karas Region

The Karas Region is the most southern region of the 13 regions of Namibia, it is also the largest, and is the gateway for many visitors from South Africa into Namibia, as it borders South Africa's Northern Cape Province in the south and east. Along with the Hardap Region the Karas Region spans the entire width of the country of Namibia.

A predominantly small stock farming region, the Karas region has seen significant gains in the importance of game and irrigation farming along the Naute Dam and the Orange River. On the coast lies the harbor town of Luderitz, with its fishing and boat building industry. Not too far from Luderitz, are the diamond areas, which stretch the length of the coast down towards Oranjemund, and the ghost town of Kolmanskop. A must see on any visit to the Karas Region,

Along the southern areas of the Karas Region, the Ai-Ais Hot Water Springs can be found, for those seeking the healing and relaxing powers of the mineral waters rising out of the earth. While adventures seekers can tackle the Orange River Canyon, said to be second only in size to that of the Grand Canyon of the United States of America.

Keetmanshoop is the administrative capital of the Karas Region, and it is also here that some of the major draw cards to the Region can be found. The Kookerboom Forest and Giants Playground are located just outside the town , while the Brukaros Mountain, a millennia old volcano, can be found near Berseba.

By no means the busy metropolis laden region of other holiday hotspots, the Karas Region is its own unique beauty, and will tantalize the mind and soul of any visitor, offering up its unbelievably spectacular landscape, showcasing evidence of millions of years of history.
