Rehoboth (or Basterland) was a bantustan in South West Africa (present-day Namibia) intended by the apartheid government to be a self-governing homeland for the Baster people in the area around the town of Rehoboth, Namibia. A centrally administered local government was created in 1979. The bantustan existed until 29 July 1989, a few months prior to the Independence of Namibia.
