Outapi War Museum is located underground in the former operational South African Regime Amy Base situated in Outapi. Previously known as the "Ohatopi" base. Then typical of the many smaller SADF posts along the Namibian border with Angola. The base was built in 1975 and became home to thousands of South African conscripts stationed on the border during the Bush war also known as the War of Liberation which lasted from 1966 until 1989, a total of 23 years, making it one of Africa's longest conflicts.

The base was attacked on numerous occasions by PLAN, the armed wing of SWAPO. The base was finally abandoned by the SADF in 1989 upon the implementation of resolution 435. The base stood empty and vandalized for many years. Many of the structures destroyed in time and with commercial development of the land.
