African Travel Concept

Waterberg Plateau Park

Waterberg Plateau Park is often overlooked, as most people travel further north in Namibia for a prime position at a waterhole in Etosha National Park. The Waterberg has many game farms and lodges and offers a unique and less crowded wildlife experience. The 200 meter-high, flat-topped Waterberg Plateau is sometimes described as the Lost Eden because, once up there, the animals have no way down.

Rare species including white rhino, buffalo, and sable and roan antelope have been introduced to the Waterberg Plateau Park and the existing game includes giraffe, kudu, leopard, hyena and cheetah.

The park has two excellent long walking safaris that provide a fascinating close encounter with Namibia’s wilderness. One is guided with no set route and the other is a self-guided demarcated trail.

Today, the park is home to some 25 game species, over 200 bird species, and vegetation which changes dramatically from acacia savannah at the foot of the plateau to lush-green sub-tropical dry woodland with tall trees and grassy plains at the top.

Several excellent game farms have developed over the years and offer exceptional private safaris with luxury accommodation and good numbers of Africa’s big game.
