Activities at Spitzkoppe Rest Camp
The Spitzkoppe Mountain is an isolated and unique environment on the interior fringe of the Namib desert. Not only does it showcase the most striking geological formations in Namibia, it also offers the biggest collection of diverse rock art sites in Namibia. Close to 40 sites clearly shows art from our hunter-gatherer ancestors, dating back to the introduction of livestock in the last millennium. To have visited Namibia, one must tick visiting the Spitzkoppe Rock Art on your list of "to do's".
These sites can be visited by means of guided tours or by obtaining a permit at reception. Tours or self drive can also include visits to unique rock formations like the "bridge" or pools. A new 20 hectare game area is also being upgraded with secluded camping and access routes. A favorite activity is to take a guide with a donkey cart and visit, over a two hour period, the Bushman's Paradise and other historical sites. Maybe with a picnic basket?
In addition we have an abundance of hiking trails and bird watching excursions. The threatened Damara Tern, a small bird occurring mostly at Spitzkoppe, is a famous part of our Fauna and Flora. It is also possible that you might see a swarm of Namibian redfaced lovebirds in one of the huge fig trees at your campsite.

Individuals and teams from all over the world make use of the unique rock-face opportunities here, in routes of different grading, for you protection and relaxation.
