After a normal ride over gravel roads you reach the Waterberg National Park. This offers you a memorial in the form of the German cemetery (Herero insurrection), as well as a small ascent to the Tafelberg, a magnificent view of the never-ending Kalahari. The restaurant...More

This lodge is in a beautiful escarpment of red stone which forms a plateau. The tree- lined slopes are home to a multitude of animals and birds. The lodges are very comfortable and simple, with all you might need. The pool is picturesque. The restaurant...More

Nice place to visit, we went up the waterberg plateau and went to the German cemetery. It's really worth the fee for going up!

Waterberg is unique, both as a landmark (huge table mountain in an otherwise flat landscape) and ecosystem. It is also a nice 2h hiking experience, and views from the top are gorgeous. Should you try to take the 'alternative route' down, make sure you don't...More

We camped here one night only, which wasn't enough time (will spend more time the next visit). The campground is fairly nice, with plenty of wildlife running through in the mornings and evenings, along with noisy baboons who like to jump on top of vehicles...More

Entrance costs 80.00ND per person plus 10.00ND for the car. There are several trails you can take but unfortunately we found them to be very confusing and unclear. The views from the top are stunning and it's worth the 30 minutes hike each way.

Have been here several times, each time hiking up the famous plateau. The views from the top are superb.

Yes. You can hike up to the plateau on a sign-posted path. It is not very strenuous and the views are breathtaking. Definitely worth your while
