Oshivelo is a settlement in northern Namibia.

Transport and infrastructure[edit]

Oshivelo has a clinic that in 2014 was refurbished and named after Catherine Bullen, a woman that died here in 2002 due to inadequate facilities.[1]

In early 2005, the new Northern Railway reached Oshivelo with a 89 kilometres (55 mi) section from Tsumeb. By mid-2006, it had reached Ondangwa, and. A train service known as the Omugulugwombashe Star traveled weekly on this track until the locomotives broke down after a few rounds of service.[2]
