Farm Tiras is a cattle farm with a total surface area of 12.000 ha.
The farm is traversed by the old ox wagon path linking Lüderitz with Namibia's interior. As early as 1900, Tiras was known to transport drivers as a reliable watering place, which members of the German colonial forces later also made use of. Since 1930 Tiras has been utilised as a farm for livestock breeding.
Relics from the early history of man can be seen on the farm in the form of bushman paintings, grating stones, tools and pottery shards.
As a result of severe weathering, unique rock sculptures have been formed in Old Tiras.
