This site is part of a complex of small cemeteries and monuments, including the Rhenish Mission Cemetery. The Chiefs' Graves site honors leaders of the Herero people in their uprising against their German colonizers. It is llocated down a 100 meter-long path off the T-junction of Voigt and Heroes Streets. A sign will direct you from the junction to the grave site.
On the last weekend in August, an annual ceremony takes place at the complex to commemorate the Herero Uprising and the Battle of Waterberg.
