The Waterberg

The Waterberg Plateau Park is ecologically diverse and rich and has over 200 different species of bird and some rare species of small antelope on the lower hills of the mountain. This is one of the wonders of Namibia.

 waterberg

 Geologically, the oldest rock stratum is over 850 million years old and dinosaurs tracks were left there some 200 million years ago. The first human inhabitants were the San people, who left rock engravings believed to be several thousand years old. A small tribe of the San were still living their traditional lifestyle on the plateau until the late 1960s.

The site is also home to one of the major turning points in Namibia's History. It was at Waterberg, in the foothills, that the Herero people lost their last and greatest battle against German colonial forces at the beginning of the 20th century. The Herero were forced to retreat from the Waterberg and headed eastward to British Bechuanaland, now Botswana. Thousands were killed by the pursuing Germans and many lost their lives in the Kalahari Desert due to lack of food and water. Estimates are that nearly two thirds of the Herero population lost their lives during this period. The graves of German soldiers who lost their lives at Waterberg can still be viewed near the waterberg rest camp at the base of the park.

 

There is a rest camp with chalets, for a much more luxurious camping experience. There is also a tent camp to experience the wonders of nature.

 

Some of  the activities that one can do at the Waterberg are Hiking, game watching, enjoying the peaceful scenery, You can also go on a Rhino drive to get to know more about the Rhino.

 

There are also wonderful Nature trails which learn you about the fauna and flora of the Waterberg.

 

Cultural tour into Hereroland with a tourguide to allow you to see the treditional and everyday life of the Herero.
