|The story of the discovery of Hentiesbaai
( Henties Bay ) has it that a certain Major Hentie van der Merwe
from Kalkfeld discovered a freshwater spring in 1929 at the
Omaruru mouth following an expedition where he lead a group in
search of a rhino. Apparently he had heard of a
museum in Pennsylvania offering a small fortune for a rhino
skeleton and he embarked on an expedition to hunt a rhino for
this purpose. Having successfully hunted the animal he
realised they did not have sufficient water and set out to
search for water, a necessity in the harsh desert
conditions. As luck would have it he stumbled upon a patch
of green reeds fed by a small freshwater spring near the current
Hentiesbaai ( Henties Bay ).
Major van der Merwe fell in love with this place and returned
the next December to
this site which is now Hentiesbaai ( Henties Bay ). He ended up spending all his holidays
there. Friends joined him over the years and subsequently the
holiday village of Hentiesbaai
Henties Bay ) evolved. Today Hentiesbaai (
Henties Bay ) consists of almost 3000 permanent
inhabitants. During the school holidays, the number of
people in Henties
Bay (mainly from South Africa) increases considerably.
Desert Stays would love to welcome you to this
angler's paradise in Henties Bay !
