The Erongo Mountains resulted from volcanic activity million years ago. Here it is extremely dry and you will find pure bush savannah. Already before the colonization by people the area was a paradise for the animal kingdom, meanwhile it has now become a paradise for wildlife, in which next to almost all antelope species, mountain zebra and giraffe and the rare black rhino live. Not to mention the predators, leopard and cheetah. There is so much to see and admire when you drive through this exciting landscape in open jeeps. The game drive can be rounded off with a sundowner.
On foot, with or without a guide you can experience this splendid landscape. Particularly attractive is a hike in the river bed of the Omaruru, which only flows in the rainy season. You can scramble over eroded rocks and admire dug holes that were dug by animals in which you may still find water long after the rainy season. Also if you’re fit you might want to dare and try to ascent on our highest mountain, the Kranzberg.
