Northern Namibia is the northernmost region of Namibia. It was known as Ovamboland under the South African regime. This area is now divided into several administrative regions. It is Namibia's most densely populated area (though still primarily rural), and home to the Ovambo, Namibia's largest ethnic group.
The world's largest meteorite, the Hoba Meteorite, is located 25 kilometers to the west of Grootfontein.
