Waterberg Plateau Park is a national park in central Namibia encompassing the Waterberg Plateau, 68km east of the town of Otjiwarongo.
The Waterberg area is well known for its archaeological finds dating to the Stone Age as well as evolutionary finds related to the origin of humans. There are also ruins of several Iron Age settlements and Bushmen rock paintings at Lapalala within the Waterberg.
The Waterberg Plateau rises up out of the surrounding Namibian savannah while its brick-red magnificence looms towards the heavens, reaching a height of 420m. Mother Nature’s castle walls in the form of the plateau’s rock-face have created a flourishing sanctuary for fauna and flora in the area.
The habitat is open grassland, savanna woodland, some springs that support lush vegetation and rocky cliffs that attract various raptors. A must-see target bird is Rüppell’s Parrot. A small population of Violet Woodhoopoe is also present, mainly around permanent water.
Baboons live on the rocks around the plateau, the dense bush on the slopes is inhabited by Damara Dik-Dik (the smallest antelope species), klipspringer, kudu and leopard. The tree and shrub savannah of the plain below is home to giraffe, eland, oryx antelope and hartebeest, impala, blue wildebeest, zebra and springbok.
Humans have been living at the Waterberg since prehistoric times because of the springs and game they found here. Explorers Francis Galton and Charles Andersson, who were the first Europeans to venture into the area in 1851, encountered San (Bushmen) and Damara.
Waterberg Mountain Range, over 1 800 million years old and one of the oldest mountain ranges on the planet and believed to be the original home of the San based on rock painting evidence, also contributes to a major water catchment area
The numerous activities offered in the area includes guided bush walks, game drives, farm tours, bird watching, riding safaris, cattle mustering, fishing, hunting, river boat cruises, hiking, 4×4 and mountain bike trails.

Sleeping ontop a car gives you an added sense of security in the wilderness. Generally speaking, camping is safe, even on the non-fenced campsites. Most animals do not perceive tents as tents with people inside, but interpret them as large animals or objects, hence an attack is very unlikely.
