In the city, you will find plentiful birdlife and wildlife as well as teeming flora. Over the years, Okahandja has turned into an industrial city with many major companies settling in the area while the other corporations are also expected to be relocated here. Okahandja is also most known as a centre for fine pieces of crafted wood.
