Discover striking granite rocks and dramatic mountain scenery
Welcome to the Erongo Mountains, a perfect stop off point on a self-drive itinerary in Namibia. The Erongo Mountains yet again show the diversity that this country offers; high mountain peaks, giant granite boulders and a place of history with a selection of ancient rock art to appreciate at Paula’s cave. A place where the desert meets the mountains and bushveld here the birdlife is prolific from raptors to beautiful sunbirds – this is a birder’s paradise. A few to mention are the Hartlaub's Francolin, Redbilled Francolin, Ruppell's Parrot, Rosyfaced Lovebird and Monteiro's Hornbill. View resident black eagles nests from the cliff top, watching this magnificent bird soar over the cliffs is an incredible experience. Spend your time here on nature walks, enjoy the serenity of time at the top of the mountains, dramatic mountain views – you will have time to reflect and enjoy the natural beauty of these mountains. An area rich in flora and fauna which is a beautiful contrast from the stark desert that you will experience in other parts of Namibia.
