The Waterberg Restcamp, formerly the Waterberg Plateau Park Resort, is a basic government-run motel with a wonderful location and setting.
Situated high up on the slopes of the Waterberg Plateau the motel offers camping facilities and self-catering accommodation in spacious bungalows spread out among lush grounds.
The restaurant and bar area is housed in the 1908 German-era police station adding a bit of colour and history to an otherwise unremarkable place. But you're not in the Waterberg for anything other than the magnificent views and excellent hiking trails.
With its diverse habitats, the Waterberg Plateau Park is used as a breeding reserve for Namibia's rare and endangered species including black and white rhino, buffalo, sable and roan antelope, Damara dik-dik, and the Cape vulture. These in addition to the 25 species of naturally occurring wildlife which includes giraffe, kudu, leopard and the magnificent black eagle.
Nature walks are the highlight of the Waterberg Plateau Park. Nine trails lead from the camp up and around the plateau and offer excellent views and a fascinating experience of the ever-changing habitats and their flora, fauna and avifauna. For the more experienced hikers there are longer guided and unguided trails of up to five days. All of the hikes have stone shelters at each stop but you will need to haul your own equipment.
