Gobabis is a town in Namibia.

Get in[edit]


The B6 (Trans-Kalahari Highway) is the main road between Namibia and Botswana and passes through Gobabis.

Route C30 is a secondary road that runs north west from Gobabis via Steinhausen to the C22 just South of Otjiwarongo. It is a more direct alternative route to the Waterberg Plateau Park in the Otjozondjupa region.


At this stage the railway line from Windhoek terminates in Gobabis but it does not carry any passengers. The proposed Trans-Kalahari Railway may pass through this town.
