Waterberg Plateau National Park

Visit something old and something environmentally beautiful. The Waterberg Plateau National Park is about 200 million years old. Discover the dinosaur relics and ancient San paintings on the Sandstone rock, still visible. You can still see German graves at the base of the mountain from the 1904 Battle of the Waterberg against the Herero people.

HIGH AND LOW

The top of the Waterberg plateau is a sandstone outcrop chiselled into amazing shapes and covered with grassy plains where forests also grow. The flat foothills support acacia bush, evergreen trees and lush bush where natural springs well up. The mountain gets its name from the many springs that appear at its base.

ACTIVITIES FOR ALL

If you love wilderness walking, you love the park for its day and overnight trails. Organised drives into the park last up to three hours, some heading to the top of the Plateau where game viewing hides bring luck. Try an organised cultural tour with a guide – visit a traditional Herero village, a community centre or school and sample local food for fun.

RARE ANIMALS AND BIRDS

Numerous endangered species have been relocated to the Waterberg Plateau National Park including White rhino, roan and sable antelope in an attempt to start viable breeding herds. The remarkable Verreaux Eagles (Black Eagles) and Namibia’s only colony of Cape Vultures breed here.

AFRICAT

AfriCat Foundation is a non-profit organisation based nearby in the Okonjima Reserve where big cats are rehabilitated back into the wild. Namibia has more than 20% of the world's cheetah and it here in Okonjima that Africat has saved more than 900 big cats since 1993.
