Otjiherero (Herero) is a South-Central-Bantu language, part of the Niger-Congo family of languages. It is spoken by people in Namibia and Botswana. Some speakers are also in southern Angola. Total population of Herero speakers is approximately 133,000.

Otjiherero group of languages comprise many dialects, including Oluthimba or Otjizemba, Otjihimba and Otjikuvale. All the dialects differ from Standard Herero (Central), except Mbanderu which is the same as Standard Herero, but are mutually intelligible (which means that a Southern Herero can be understood by a North-Western Herero and vice-versa). Standard Herero is used in the Namibian media and is also taught in schools through-out the country. Country Profile - Namibia Country Profile - Botswana Country Profile - Angola
