Highlights of Namibia

Erongo Mountains

Scroll

Part of the Erongo Mountain Nature Conservancy and the region’s namesake, the Erongo Mountains are a roughly circular massif formed by the collapse of a volcano into its magma chamber. The resultant slow-cooled igneous rock has resisted erosion and now stands 2216 masl as a beautifully bouldered landscape, home to unique animals and birds. Activities in the area include hiking, game drives, mountain biking and horse riding. There are ancient engravings hidden amongst the rocks including those at Paula’s Cave.

Animals include Hartmann’s zebra, Angola dwarf python and black mongoose and birders flock to the Erongo Mountains for its specials: Hartlaub’s francolin, Damara rockrunner, white-tailed shrike and Monteiro’s hornbill. Rosy faced lovebirds are plentiful and other species include Ruppell’s parrot, Verreaux’s (black) and booted eagles.
