Oniipa is a settlement in the Oshikoto Region of northern Namibia and the district capital of the Oniipa electoral constituency. It lies just outside of Ondangwa.[1] It is the hometown of former Lutheran bishop and liberation leader Leonard Auala.[2]

There is also the well-known old church hospital called Onandjokwe Lutheran Hospital, which was named after the first female nurse. Oniipa is also known with the history during the struggle of independence of this country, as the most known printing shop was burnt down by the boars.
