Karibib is situated on the WindhoekSwakopmund line, built in 1902 during Imperial Germany's colonial rule of German South West Africa. In 1914 this line was extended to Walvis Bay.[1]

Karibib is connected to a number of towns in the north of Namibia via the railway junction at Kranzberg, 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) west of town, and to the south and east of Namibia via Windhoek.[1]
