Though this is the country's most well-known mountain, at 180 meters it isn't the tallest.

We camped inside the park (150.00ND per person / 100.00 per child between 2-12 years old) so the entrance fee was included. Day visitors pay 50.00ND per person and 70.00ND for the vehicle. We took a guided tour with a lovely guide named Benny (50.00ND...More

Totally amazing landscape. Great for an overnight stop or day-trip from Swakopmund. You can walk amongst the bolder mountains and climb over the smaller sections. You can also take a local guide from the entrance to harder to access areas and learn about the local...More

Heat haze permitting, Spitzkoppe is visible across the semi-desert from over 100km away, and from one angle, does indeed look like the Matterhorn. As you approach, what appeared as a single mountain splits into two, with several smaller lumps. They are all a kind of...More

We camped in camp site 10A - certainly one of the best available. The place is magical all-round. Do spend some time walking around to see the bushmen art and arch rock. We loved the (long) distance between the camp sites. The restaurant/bar area is...More

Nice for some views and photos! If you're looking for a place to camp this will do well - very quiet and remote. Didn't go with a ranger to see the rock art - they were charging too much money! Don't know how they justify...More

Several large granite rock outcroppings of interesting shapes, some have Bushman pictographs on them, some have water tanks. Camping areas.

A beautiful sight to see and explore. We ended up camping right at the base of the rocks, which was some of the best star gazing I have experienced in Namibia. A nice place to see on the way to or from Swakopmund.

Is it worth stopping here on our way to Swakopmund just to see the mountains and take some pics? We wouldn't have any time to hike or anything like that, plus I red you need a guide to hike. But is it still a good place for a short stop or not worth a short stop? Thank you!

It is definitely worth a stop there, although it's a shame not to stay for sunset, as it would be the most spectacular one in Namibia.

Can you drive an high clearance 2 WD to Spitzkoppe? We are only hiring a 2WD, as we will not be going on dirt tracks, but have an interest in stopping by (not camping). Thanks Craig
