Omusati region is one of the fourteen regions of Namibia, its capital is Outapi. The Mopane tree gave the name to this region (omusati: Ndonga: Mopane) and is the dominant species in the region. The Makalani palms decrease rapidly westwards from the border with Oshana region. The change in vegetation type reflects ecological conditions forming a natural boundary between the two regions. The region is home to the Ruacana Falls. The waterfall is 120 meters (390 ft) high and 700 meters (2,300 ft) wide in full flood and is among the largest waterfalls in Africa, both by volume and width. Omusati is also home to the Omugulugwombashe Heritage Site, where the Namibian struggle for independence started in 1966. In the north, Omusati borders the Cunene Province of Angola. Domestically, it borders the following regions:
Ohangwena - northeast Oshana - east Kunene - south and west
