Miss Namibia is a national Beauty pageant in Namibia.

History[edit]

The very first Miss Namibia was held in 1980 by Nic Kruger, the founder of the pageant. After that there are three national directors: Nic Kruger (1980–1996), Danie Botes (1997–1998) and Conny Maritz (1999–today).

According to the source from Glynis Fester (Miss RSA 1977)—the first Miss SWA-Nambia was Ann Parker who was crowned by her on 18 June 1977. This is on public record in the Rapport published on 19 June 1977. She did not go to any international pageants.
