The mountain is very popular for hikers doing 3 to 5 day hikes. Hiking and other guides can be arranged on request. Guided tours in Toyota Landcruisers in and around the area available. The Brandberg Area is also popular for its unspoilt beauty, Desert Elephant, herds of Zebra and Springbok roaming free in the wild. Buy world famous brandberg Crystals directly from small miners making a living from selling these crystals.

The main attraction is the White Lady, one of more than 45,000 rock painting in the area. A 40 minute hike will take you to what is widely agreed to be a bushman painting at least 2000 years of age.

Experience peace as we travel trough the tranquil landscape of Damaraland during the early morning light. Visit Sorris Sorris, a settlement of the local Damara people. Thereafter we visit the Petrified Forest and continue towards the BurntMountain and the Organ Pipes. These the strange geological features will be explained to you during the excursion. On arrival at Twyfelfontein, a picnic-lunch will be served. After lunch, we will go on a short excursion into the Twyfelfontien Valley were you will see one of the world’s largest concentrations of rock engravings. On the way back we will take you on a Safari expedition, far off the beaten track, where with luck you may be able to view free-ranging game. e.g. Springbok, Oryx, Ostrich, Zebra, Kudu, Jackal, and possibly the world renowned Desert Elephant. The route will take you through spectacular landscapes. Granite “Koppies”, vegetated Kalahari sand dunes and the UgabRiver valley.

360° Around the Brandberg

Depart from the Brandberg Rest Camp after breakfast; Visit various interesting sites on the way. e.g. White Scorpion, Namib Rock 2, Elephant rock, desolated mining sites (Tourmaline and Pyrophyllite). See numerous Welwitchia mirabilis plants (living fossils some up to 2000 years old). Buy crystals of Quartz and Amethyst direct from the local diggers. See spectacular rock formations and glacial striations 300 million years old. Try the Dead Sea experience. Enjoy lunch in the shade of massive Acacia erioloba, Camel Thorn, trees in the Ugab River Valley. See extraordinary geological features of contorted and folded 700 million year old sedimentary rocks, exposed by the mighty power of the Ugab River. Exit the Ugab Valley via the “divorce pass” and feel the desolation. The scenery is unbelievable. Then all of a sudden, Kalahari aged sand dunes occur in the middle of Damaraland. An abundance of desert succulent flora can be seen all along the way. e.g. Parkinsonia afrikana, the wild hair tree, different Euphorbia species, toxic milky latex trees, Sterculia africana, the African chestnut tree, and various Commiphora, paper trees, species. Free roaming animals will also be seen and if our timing is right, there is a good chance to see the world-renowned desert elephants. We will be back at the Brandberg Rest Camp late in the afternoon where you can enjoy our hospitality.

± 10-hour excursion, packed lunch included

Spitzkoppe Excursion

Depart from the Brandberg Rest Camp after breakfast. We deviate from the main road on an off road excursion to visit the water pumping station in the Omaruru River which provides drinking water for the village of Uis. Astonishing views of the Spitskoppe will be seen. On this route the elephant’s foot Adenia pechuelii and Leadwood Combretum imberbe and various other succulent plant species can also be seen while descending down into the Omaruru River valley. We approach the Spitskoppe from a northerly direction; which is not the norm, thus giving an entirely different view of the mountains to that which most other tourists see.

Geologically the Spitzkoppe are a series of deep seated igneous magma intrusive rocks. If there ever was an upper volcanic lava sequence as in the nearby Erongo Mountains these have long since been eroded. The Granites aged at about 126 million years old intruded into older Damara granites aged at about 500 million years old. Differential erosion between these two rock masses has resulted in the rising inselbergs of the harder Spitzkoppe granite being left standing proud. The granite is composed of the minerals pink feldspar, quartz and minor micas and is very coarse grained

± 8-hour excursion, packed lunch included
