The Black Queens now face a herculean task of booking of the two qualification slots for the 2015 FIFA Womenâ€™s World Cup in Canada.
South Africaâ€™s Bayana Bayana were runners-up at the 2012 tournament but were beaten 1-0 by the Queens in May in a friendly.
Cameroon won bronze in Equatorial Guinea two years ago by edging Nigeria in the third/fourth playoff.
Group A, which contains the hosts Namibia, Zambia, Nigeria and Cote Dâ€™Ivoire, looks fairy balanced.
Ghana secured a 4-0 aggregate win (1-0 away and 3-0 home ) over Senegal two months ago to qualify for this yearâ€™s finals.
The draw for the eight-team tournament was held in the Namibian capital Windhoek on Saturday evening.
