Description [ correction ]

The historical village of Dordabis was established in the early 20s by August Stauch who purchased the Dordabis, Ibenstein and Protea farms to develop as a trade centre. Stauch had originally established a diamond claim at Kolmanskop outside L├╝deritz in 1908. His daughter Marianne, and her husband Nicolai Krafft, started Karakul sheep farming and opened the first carpet weavery in Namibia on the farm Ibenstein.
Dordabis mostly serves the farming community which is focused on hunting or livestock farming.
