Waterberg Plateau


This area supports a diversity of habitats and wildlife


Half way between  Windhoek and Etosha – perfect for an overnight stop – is an often forgotten and highly under-rated game viewing region. The Waterberg Plateau rises 200m above the surrounding plains. With acacia-studded savanna below and broadleafed woodland on its slopes and top, the area supports a diversity of habitats and wildlife.

Its diversity lends itself to conservation projects of which several have made an international name for themselves: the Waterberg Plateau Park is a haven for Namibia's rarer antelope species, including the roan and sable varieties, and offers two walking trails, one is a free-roaming guided hike and the other is along a demarcated trail; the Cheetah Conservation Fund is an amalgamation of several game farms contributing to the rearing and rehabilitation of these magnificent cats; and the AfriCat Foundation, which often features in documentaries and is made all the more popular by the Okonjima portfolio of luxury lodges.

Smaller game farms abound in the Waterberg area and all have a finger in the conservation pie and some offer charming guestfarm accommodation. Further north, towards the great prize of Etosha National Park are two interesting diversions: the 200-million-year-old fossilised dinosaur footprints, south of Otjiwarongo, give a sense of the Namibian landscape's longevity; and Hoba near Grootfontein, which, at 60 tonnes and 3 cubic metres, is the world's largest known meteorite.
