Activities around Waterberg Plateau
Paradise waiting to be discovered There is plenty for you to do at Waterberg Wilderness – or just relax and recharge your batteries. Since most of our guests wish that they could have spent more time with us, we recommend that you stay at least two nights. If you arrive before 15h00 you can still join our afternoon activities.
Waterberg Plateau hikes (mornings, approx. 3 h) These hikes take you onto the famous plateau of Waterberg. Even though animals usually keep their distance, our hiking guide is almost certain to show you fresh scent of leopard, rhino, buffalo and various antelope. From the plateau you enjoy spectacular views of the fertile valley of Waterberg Wilderness and across the Omaheke (or Sandveld), as this particular part of the Kalahari is called. Also discover striking sandstone formations, massive fig trees and our spring which provides water abundantly. The difference in altitude of about 150 metres has to be managed on the way up, and later down again.
Game viewing on foot (mornings, approx. 3 h)Accompanied
by a tracker our safari vehicle takes you into our nature reserve, abundantly
stocked with game, until you come across interesting fresh scent. You
now continue on foot. With a little luck you will spot giraffe, eland
and other antelope – or even the white rhinos; they usually do not
pose any threat to people. For this activity you need to be physically
fit as you might be in the bush for several hours and well into the midday
Cultural tour into Hereroland (mornings, approx. 4 h; mondays to fridays, but not during school holidays or on public holidays; please book at least one day in advance) An ideal opportunity to get a glimpse of everyday life, the culture and traditions of the Herero people. A local guide meets you at Waterberg Wilderness and drives with you, in your own car, to a traditional village where you can feel totally at ease taking photos and asking questions. You then continue to the village of Okakarara and visit a marketplace, a school and the Okakarara Community Cultural Centre which was built with EU funds. The excursion wraps up with traditional songs and dances performed by women from the community. For a bite to eat, the street market offers mieliepap (maize porridge), meat and vetkoek (a type of doughnut).
Waterberg Wilderness is situated on the D 2512 gravel road, 8 km north-east of Waterberg Plateau Park Resort.The road runs east of Waterberg and is part of a less frequented, but very charming route to Grootfontein. This delightful alternative to the tar road via Otjiwarongo turns from the B 1 tar road (Okahandja – Otjiwarongo) onto the C 22 tar road and the D 2512 / D 2612 gravel road to Rietfontein, and finally joins the tar road from Otjiwarongo to Grootfontein. Flanked by the plateau of Waterberg you drive through the beautiful tree and shrub savannah scenery of the east, and ever so often you will spot game or guinea fowl at the roadside. Usually the gravel road is quite suitable for a city car. During the months from October to April, however, when rain is more likely to occur, the road may be muddy in places after heavy downpours.
