Sperrgebiet renamed to Tsau //Khaeb

November 6th, 2012

It is official. The Namibian government has approved the name change of the Sperrgebiet National Park, which from now on will be called the Tsau //Khaeb National Park.

The name derives from the local Nama language and means “deep sandy soils” in reference to the park’s most enduring feature.

To keep things clear for now, and to allow time for people at home and across the world to get used to the new name, it has been recommended that the name Sperrgebiet is written in brakcets when ever the park is mentioned.

In a media statement issued last week, it was said that the new name “gives a sense of proper reflection and description of the three biomes, namely the succulent Karoo, Nama Karoo and the Namib desert”.
