namibia 2042760 192011 1024x512 - 2 Days Mid-Erongo & Spitzkoppe Experience

Itinerary

The Erongo region of Namibia is not only known for its rich underground uranium and gold deposits. Right on its surface the region also hosts some of nature’s amazing formations, namely, the Spitzkoppe. The Spitzkoppe are a group of bald granite rocks that were formed about 120 million years ago from lava (intruding from beneath earth’s surface) that got cooled down and eventually exposed to Earth’s surface. Today these rocky mountains dwarf their entire surrounding by far. At the highest peak, the Spitzkoppe mountain ranges reach up to 670 meters from the ground. The mountain ranges were used by traditional communities both for refuge and artwork. Hence, they are home to some of the oldest rock paintings in the country, including the famous “rhino wall”. Moreover, the Spitzkoppe carry the crown of the most photographed mountains of Namibia.

 

Day 1

We leave Windhoek early in the morning at 7 a.m. heading west and reach Karibib after about 2.5 hours of relaxed driving where we will have breakfast. After breakfast (and a bit of stretching) we will set out for Spitzkoppe via Usakos. Our final destination of the day (Spitzkoppe) is located about 65 kilometers northwest of Usakos. Reaching Spitzkoppe we will be taken on a tour by a well-experienced local guide. While enjoying this marvel of nature, we will also be on a lookout for a best camping place after the tour. With the day tour will visit both “big” and the “small” Spitzkoppe, and learn more about these Mountain ranges which are Namibia’s national heritage since 2011.  Already starting from Karibib we will learn about the special gemstones found in this region, including some fine stones like, topas, Rose quartz and tourmaline. After the day tour we’ll take our well-chosen camping site and pitch our tents and ready the dinner. Guests are advised to share with us their meal preferences a day before departure.

 

Day 2

Breakfast will be served at the Campsite. After breakfast, we will get our camping gear ready, pack up, and slowly hit the road to Usakos, the final destination being Windhoek. We expect to reach Windhoek by around 1 p.m.
