The Naukluft Mountain Zebra Park forms part of the Namib-Naukluft National Park and was created to protect the Hartmann's Mountain Zebras, which are endemic to Namibia.

These beautiful mountains with its massive and varied rock formations are also the ideal habitat for cliff-breeding bird species, including black eagles.

An oasis of green with many extraordinary geological rock formations and streams flowing over rocky riverbeds, the Naukluft offers a variety of hiking trails.

The Naukluft Camp is the ideal base from which these trails can be accessed.

Namib Naukluft Camp Amenities

The Naukluft section of the Namib Naukluft Park is quiet and less frequented by large groups of tourists, probably because it's not as well-known as Sossusvlei and more aimed at adventurers wanting to complete the hiking trails.

Geology-enthusiasts will appreciate the variety of rock formations and intermittent layers of horizontally folded igneous rock, quartzite, dolomite and shale.
