Northern Region Accommodation

The Etosha National Park in the game-rich north-western corner of Namibia is 380km at it's longest and 90km at it's widest. It is a paradise, especially for the photographer, as it contains a wide variety of game in open country. There are rest camps at Okaukuejo, Halali and Namutoni, previously an old German fort.

The Waterberg Plateau Park was proclaimed for the translocation of scarce game species like roan and sable antelope and Cape buffalo. The plateau is a remnant of the original upper crust after the erosion of the surrounding landscape through the ages. There are striking mountain scenes, the only breeding colony of Cape vultures, as well as unique plants, which are found nowhere else in the country. The park offers luxury chalets and a well-equipped camping area. Otjiwarongo is on the road north to the Etosha Pan. The Waterberg mountain range and Plateau Park are easily reached from this point.

Outjo is situated on the road from Otjiwarongo to Okaukuejo, one of the rest camps in the Etosha National Park. It is also the gateway to the Kaokoveld and the Skeleton Coast.

The Rock Finger on the farm Bertram, 96km to the west of Outjo, is very impressive. The Brandberg, 24km from the mining village of Uis, is, with its Königstein Peak (2 597 meter), the highest mountain in the country. The mountain became famous after the discovery of the White Lady and other rock-paintings in the Tsisab Gorge in 1917. The Burnt Mountain is a hill with brightly coloured rocks.

Against a mountain slope at Twyfelfontein are approximately 3 000 rock paintings and engravings of giraffe, rhino, springbok, gemsbok, ostriches, cattle and animal tracks. The Petrified Forest consists of a number of tree-trunk fragments scattered over the open veld. The age of the fossil trunks is estimated at approximately 200 million years. Kamanjab, situated in a farming area, is well positioned as a stopover for visitors to Kaokoland or Damaraland.

A large farming area surrounds Grootfontein, situated 87km northeast of Otavi and 60 km from Tsumeb. The Hoba Meteorite, 19km from Grootfontein, the biggest in the world, weighs 54 000 kg and consists of 82% iron and 16% nickel. Tsumeb, the largest mining town in the country, is situated in the sub-tropical northern area. The Tsumeb Cultural Village allows tourists an insight into the rural life of Namibian tribes. It showcases their history and culture, and their work and skills in arts and crafts. The Khorab Memorial, 3 km from Otavi on the old Tsumeb road dates from the First World War. It was here that the Germans surrendered to the South African forces in 1915. Lake Otjikoto, a natural monument 24 km from Tsumeb alongside the road to Namutoni, was formed when the roof of a gigantic cave in the dolomite collapsed. Towards the end of the South West African campaign (1915), German troops threw cannons and ammunition into this deep lake.
