Kaokoland was an administrative unit and a bantustan in northern South West Africa (now Namibia).
Established during the apartheid era, it was intended to be a self-governing homeland of the OvaHimba, but an actual government was never established.
Like other homelands in South West Africa, the Kaokoland bantustan was abolished in May 1989, at the beginning of the transition of Namibia towards independence.
"Kaokoland" remains as an informal name for the geographic area, while the political unit of administration since 1990 is Kunene Region.
The area is in the Kaokoveld ecoregion.
The area is one of the wildest and least populated areas in Namibia, with a population density of one person every 2 kmĀ² (1/4 of the national average).
The most represented ethnic group is the Himba people, who account for about 5,000 of the overall 16,000 inhabitants of Kaokoland.
The main settlement in Kaokoland was the city of Opuwo.

We specialize in signed prints and original paintings and drawings by the world acclaimed artist L.S. Lowry.
The demand for his work has now reached record highs, and due to the relatively few signed limited edition prints available,
they are proving to be an excellent investment, much greater than any current banking investments.
A watercolourist, whose work needs little introduction in the world of art is Sir William Russell Flint here.
We stock hundreds of this artist's signed limited edition prints and always a fine selection of his original watercolour paintings.
Throughout his life Sir William Russell Flint has spent many years painting beautiful watercolour images of scenes in France.
