Hiking in the Waterberg

What to do and Where to Stay in Namibia’s Central Highlands

As we drove through Namibia’s Central Highlands, we couldn’t help but thinking that if they were in any other country in the world, they’d be high on the list of scenic attractions. In Namibia however they’re just one of a number of wild, rugged, and distinctly pretty (or should that be handsome?) areas. Sandwiched between Windhoek and Etosha this a region of rolling hills, mountain plateaus and one-time farms that have been made into wildlife conservancies.

High on the Waterberg there’s the sort of hiking that’ll  leave your heart pumping and your lungs gasping at the view. In the Erongo Mountains there’s ancient rock art and at Okonjima there’s the famous AfriCat foundation where guests get a unique insight into their pioneering conservation and research work.  Most of the accommodation in this area is cosy and homely, so do just ask and we can recommend one to suit you.
