Booking Request

Experience the world of the Waterberg

Hiking, game watching, breathing in history or just enjoying the peaceful scenery – there is something on offer for each of our guests. Saying good-bye is often accompanied by “We should have booked another night.”

Waterberg Wilderness Plateau Hike

“Plateau Hike”

mornings, 2-3 hours

Your hiking guide climbs the plateau with you (approx. 150 m above the plains). He explains plants and animals in the park to you and gives you an insight into the daily life and culture of the people living in this area. Terrific view of the valley or of the plains of the Kalahari.

Waterberg Wilderness Rhino Drive

Rhino Drive

Waterberg Wilderness Rhino Tracking

Rhino Tracking

mornings, 3-4 hours, physical fitness is a must

Guided by your tracker you will explore our nature reserve at the foot of the Waterberg and detect game such as oryx or red hartebeest, kudu or giraffe. You might even come face to face with rhinos.
