The town of Oranjemund, managed by Namdeb, occupies one of the most remarkable landscapes along the Namibian west coast. The town was established in 1936, following the discovery of diamonds on the north bank of the Orange River. From the humble beginnings of a few scattered structures, it has blossomed into a fully-fledged local council with the establishment of the OTMCo. Oranjemund residents live amid an abundance of fauna and flora that is indigenous to the harsh environment of the Namibian desert. Majestic Gemsbok (Oryx) and other wildlife roam freely in the area around the town and it is not uncommon to find them in the town itself, an indication of the environmentally friendly relationship the town and mine have with the surrounding nature. This unique, closed town also has the lowest crime rate in Namibia, making it a secure and pleasant haven for the 11 000 inhabitants. Namdeb employees living in Oranjemund are provided with free housing, water and electricity. The town boasts a high quality of utilities, considered amongst the most excellent and consistent within Namibia included amongst these are first class sporting, schooling and medical facilities provided to the community.
