Thank you Mike and thx for acceptance to the page. I tried to join Oreanemunders on fb looks like they are not accepting me.
I was born in Oranjemund in 1958 (Terblanche) my father was in security. He died in 1963 and my mother went to cape town with my sister and I.
My grandparents were the Lazarus family that had the drycleaners my grandfather worked as chef i think in the mes and apparently worked in the bakery and butchery if i have my facts straight.
We are starting to get our Namibia Ids and passports done.
I am just trying to establish whether south africans working in oranjemund at the time had any kind of SWA Id's.
I told my older family about your group and its taking them far back. My aunt Marsha Green has probably already registered to join your group so she can give much more info.

And thank you Nada, will definitely have look at the fb page.

Have a great day.

Even though FB has become more popular, this site is still amazing with all the information and history contained here. FB does not have a patch on what Mike had created at the time. you rock

So, in short, do yourself a favour and go through the information here as well.

The FB page is called EX-Oranjemunders get together.

Hi Lizette, welcome to the forum, please feel free to share your Omund memories....

Facebook actually killed this forum off. Back in the day we were way more active but as FB became more popular folks drifted off....

There is a FB page for Oranjemunders, though not top sure of what it is called, just goto Facebook and type in Oranjemund...

Dear All

Thank You for this lovely forum, as we are big fans of Oranjemund and first visited the town in Dec 2017 during our annual 3 week Nam Trip. I am born Namibian, went to school in Swakop and studied in Germany. We live and work in Johannesburg, but fly in to Walvis Bay on a regular basis as well as doing long overland trips through Namibia during Dec/Jan holidays. My family is stil in Nam.

Why Oranjemund? My dad used to fly in very often for business and always told me how it went and all about the security measures etc and when we heard that the town will be open soon for visitors (genuine ones) we did not wait long. We stayed for two days at Op my Stoep, Fanie Smit, and really enjoyed it. Our next visit is planned again for this coming December, also because we are very interested to see how the town evolves further. Hope to see the game for many years to come. Also, your local MTC shop gave as a really good service in purchasing a Data Card.

Lets see what our next visit has to offer. Our Dream is to visit Bogenfels, but not as a guided trip. I saw Bogenfels once as a youngster when we played soccer against the German school in Lüderitz, end 70's, and the local authorities arranged that for us. Was very special.

So, to all who are keeping the wheels turn at/in Oranjemund, please do so in future.

Kind Regards
Ellen & Adolf

Castle Lager in a Heineken glass. They only serve castle larger on tap, no castle lite at all.
