Waterberg Platopark Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 26 photos

Our first day with Crazy Kudu Safari

After a quick stop at the woodcarving market in the small town of Okahandja to buy some food and souvenirs, we went further north to the "Table Mountain" of Namibia, the Waterberg plateau where we went for a hike on top and rest (with the ground squirrels) at the camping at the foot of the colourful mountain.

Waterberg Plateau Park

Waterberg Plateau Park was proclaimed as a game reserve in 1972 to serve as a sanctuary for rare and threatened animals such as the tsessebe, the black and white rhino and the roan and sable antelope. But other animals can also be seen, including giraffes, kudus, gemsboks, warthogs, impalas, baboons, leopards, rock dassies, mangooses, brown hyenas, cheetas, over 200 bird species and of course different snake species.
The aim of this natural reserve is to preserve the diversity of the flora and maintain a wilderness area free of any human interference.
