Aus Namibia

After the Germans surrendered to the South African forces at Otavi on 9 July 1915, the tidy, tranquil village of Aus became one of two internment camps for German military personnel. Military police and officers were sent to a camp in the north and the noncommissioned officers went to Aus. After the treaty of Versailles, the camp was dismantled and by May 1919 it was closed. Virtually nothing remains of the original camp, but several WWI graves remain immediately north of the village.

En route to Lüderitz, you may observe the feral desert horses of the Namib; for the best viewing, stop by the hide at Garub Pan, 20 km west of Aus.
