Stop At: Spitzkoppe, Namibia
We travel from Swakopmund to one of Namibia's best known landmarks: the Spitzkoppe Mountain, also known as the Matterhorn of Africa. This is a granite outcrop which rises 780m above the surrounding Namib Desert; its total height above sea level is 1728m. Before we come to the Spitzkoppe we pass through a village populated with the indigenous Damara people. There are numerous stands en-route where locals offer semi-precious stones for sale at very reasonable prices.
After passing the entrance to the Spitzkoppe Nature Park we drive around the mountain and view several attractions like the "Rock Pool" and the "Rock Arch", as well as some interesting bushman paintings. The rich vegetation at the Spitzkoppe provides ample opportunity to study some of the flora of the Namib Desert. Several bird species can be seen as well, as for example the Pale-winged Starling, the Herero Chat and species of weaver birds.
After a leisurely lunch break clients have an opportunity of viewing some more bushman paintings at the "Bushman's Paradise". Afterwards it is time for our return-journey to Swakopmund.
