Only monument that commemorates the return of 2000 afrikaners from Angola to Namibia in 1928 that had left South Africa in the last two decades of the 19th century because of the british policy that made them fear the imperialism of the Empire. It marks the spot where the afrikaners crossed the Kunene river: Swartbooisdrift that was an important port between Angola and SWA. Here, they where accomodated in the temporary camp Chimhaka, before being transported inland to Outjo.
