Mountains of Namibia
The Tsarisberge (Tsaris Mountains) are a small range of mountains, mainly to the north, but either side of the C19 from Mariental, a road that runs as far north as the settlement of Solitaire. The rugged mountain landscape offers a number of natural springs, marked walking trails, with varying degrees of difficulty and routes for self-drive 4x4 trips. It is also a great area for bird watching; black eagles and rosy-faced lovebirds are resident here.
There are a number of scenic spots on plateau's that overlook a number of canyons. Enthusiasts of geology, palaeontology and archeology, can all study their 'ology's' in peace here. A favourite stopover for both the Tsarisberge and day trips to the dunes at Sossusvlei, or the nearby Naukluft Mountains, is the highly recommended Zebra River Lodge.
The settlement of Bullsport is marked on nearly every map, however it consists of little more than this friendly guest farm. The owners are welcoming and eager to share their Namibian experiences. Great for hiking and horse riding.
A small, budget friendly, owner operated rest camp, with individual bungalows & campsites. Great for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life
Located in the mountainous Naukluft section of the Namib Naukluft Park, this is an ideal base for hikers or those wanting to relax at the crystal clear rock pools that amazingly exist in the desert environment
One of the finest desert wine estates in the world can be found on the edge of the Namib Desert. The estate offers accommodation & wine tasting tours
A small lodge on the banks of the Tsauchab River - an excellent place for walking and enjoying the surrounding scenery. Visitors are welcomed by an amazing arrary of metal sculptures
Another excellent place for hiking, in the Tsaris Mountains. If you want a genuinely warm welcome at a special lodge then this is an excellent choice. Zebra River can be used as a base for visits to the dunes at Sossusvlei, but is best used to relax and walk on the massive lodge property
