Mountain Kingdom

North of Karibib and Usakos, is one of Namibia's most popular tourist draw-cards, the volcanic Erongo mountain range, of which the western peaks rise 2,320m above sea level. This roughly circular massif, dominates the flat plains west of Omaruru and gives the Erongo region its name. The Erongo Mountains are flanked by the Namib Desert to the west and a mixed, woodland savannah to the east.

The Spitzkoppe, is a group of bald granite peaks or Inselbergs located between Usakos and Swakopmund in the Namib desert of Namibia. The granite is more than 120 million years old and the highest outcrop rises about 1,784 metres above sea level. The peaks stand out dramatically from the flat surrounding plains

The Gamsberg, Namibia’s largest table mountain, has a 2.5 km long and 800 m wide plateau. With extremely low air disturbances, the area offers approximately 220 suitable stargazing nights per year. Visitors to Gamsberg can make use of the facilities at the German International Amateur Observatory, which is equipped with a 70cm telescope for observations and photography.

The heart of Namibia, its capital town Windhoek, possesses an unique charm due to its harmonious blend of African and European cultures and the friendliness of its people. It proves to be a strategic point from which to conduct business, or even to embark on your own Namibian adventure.
