The Waterberg Plateau holidays

The Waterberg in Namibia is a flat-topped massif carpeted with dense forest and bushveld, studded by red outcrops and buttes, and carved by glittering rivers.

Encompassing some 405 sq km of this wilderness, the Waterberg Plateau National Park is a fertile place of impressive ecological diversity. Notable wildlife here includes rhinos, leopards, cheetahs, vultures, and bush babies. To maximise wildlife-watching opportunities, the best time to visit Waterberg is in the dry season, especially July to September – when vegetation is denuded and animals seek dwindling water sources.

There are attractions beyond the flora and fauna. Waterberg Plateau National Park is home to petrified sand dunes and 200-million-year-old dinosaur footprints. Nearby villages offer visitors a chance to learn about Herero culture.
