Namibia: Waterberg Plateau Park & Waterberg Camp | Ватерберг Парк Намибия


Waterberg Camp, also known as Waterberg Bernabe de la Bat Camp, is located at the foot of Great Waterberg Plateau rising more than 200 metres above the surrounding plains, with a width of between 8 and 16 kilometres and a length of around 49 kilometres from south-west to north-east. The average altitude of the plateau is between 1650 and 1700 meters above sea level.
The area is also rich in a plant life and the total of approximately five hundred plants have been recorded in and around the Waterberg.

The plateau is largely inaccessible to tourist resulting in relocation in the early 1970s several of Namibia's endangered species with an aim to protect them from predators and poaching. This program was very successful and Waterberg now supplies other Namibian parks with rare species. Black rhino were reintroduced to the area from Damaraland in eary 1989, starting a successful breeding program of national and international significance.
