About 80 kilometres north of Bethanien lies the tiny place Helmeringhausen. A soldier of the "German Schutztruppe" once bought here 10,000 hectares of farmland which he named after his German hometown in Westphalia. Later the farm achieved some affluence with breeding Karakul sheep.



There is hardly anything worth seeing in the dusty little hamlet. In the so-called "open-air museum" some agricultural items are rusting in the heat.
