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

Unfortunately only had time to spend one night here and it certainly was not enough. Beautiful and mostly easy to climb rock formations of amazing colors and shapes. Stayed in a campsite near the bridge and climbed all around and to the top for a sunset view. The true beauty of this campsite is that it offers a lot of space between each campsite so you feel like you have the place to yourself. No electricity, no running water, and only pit toilets add to the peaceful charm. The map they give you at the entrance is definitely not to scale - what looks like a short road may not be so and vice versa so be prepared.

Wonderful conical granite outcrop with complex wethering and erosion into interesting ball shape boulders and seal like pinnacles.

If you are an outdoor person and enjoy hiking or just relaxing in the outdoors - definitely visit this place. There is a modest little bar at the entrance that you can buy drinks/food from, climb up to one of the rocks and watch the sunset or a storm in the distance...this place is breathtaking!

We left Dune 7 and headed straight for Spitzkoppe which was a 2 hour drive and most of the journey hugged the B2 road. Admission was 185 nad for 2 pax and a vehicle with a further 55 nad to be paid for the guide, but that was to be paid later once you see the bridge, formations, bit of climbing and then come back to collect the guide in your vehicle so he can show you the rock paintings on staff only tracks. So basically you can only see the paintings with a guide. But there is so much else to discover, too much in fact which is why an overnight stay here is best option rather than what we done and cram it into a day. But this was our only option due to the rest of our arranged itinerary that laid ahead.
We were given a map from reception so we could start our own self drive tour on the gravel road and make pit stops when we wanted. The road was not too hard to navigate on, but slow is the key as some of these stunning rock formations and boulder sizes are breathtaking. There are many different routes to hike in and around the rocks and incorporating awesome views of the whole Spitzkoppe location. The money shot is the bridge, where people must think ‘ how did that happen’?
Hardly any other visitors here which always feels great wherever in the world you are. After our self drive, we return to reception to pick up our guide and he takes us to the bushman paintings that were in 3 locations and they tell their own impressive story. The paintings are between 2-4000 years old and were a remarkable way of communication when technology didn’t exist. But sadly many of these paintings have been destroyed over the years, whereas there are much better sites to see paintings in the country, but if it’s mountainous peaks your after then you got it...

Spitzkoppe is a great pace to explore. It has plenty of hiking routes and rock climbing for the more adventurous. It offers some of the coolest views in Namibia
