About us

Founded in 1925 the Namibia Scientific Society assists specialists in pioneering work in various fields of popular science.

Working groups for botany, herpetology, archaeology, ornithology, astronomy and other topics were established to exchange research data and some are still active.

Research findings and relevant resources are stored in a comprehensive and well-maintained library, which holds well over fifty thousand titles, scans, slides and photos, mostly having reference to Namibia.

Kuiseb Publishers was established in-house, to release publications of various genres for members of the society and wider distribution.

The Society acts as a facilitator and networking platform for the exchange of factual information and research, sought equally and eagerly by local and foreign scientists, researchers, interested laymen, lecturers and students. Public debate, publications, preservation of national heritage and access to digital data via the internet are constantly promoted.

Our dynamic and professional team thrives to offer a multicultural social platform for intellectual exchange.
