Khorixas is a town of about 6,000 inhabitants that was once the capital of Damaraland, a settlement area for Damara people during apartheid. As former regional capital it features many administrative offices, a hospital, a Police station and a bank.
The town is walkable, and there is no public transport.
There is a petrol station and a well-stocked "OK" supermarket. The bank has an ATM. There are a number of craft stalls all along the main road.
- 1 ǀGowati Country Hotel, Main road (directly on the C39 in the centre of town). Accommodation in chalets and on the campsite, restaurant and bar, and a curio shop operated by the artist who makes the ware. Campsite is a bit noisy, only a wall separates it from the regional road, shops, bars, and petrol station. But it has old trees throughout, soft grass, and electricity at every spot. There's a rim pool from which a lone tame springbok can be observed. The place is upscale for almost every local ("Are you staying over there?") but not unusually expensive. Camping for one adult with two children 350 N$ pn.
