The Waterberg Plateau is a scenic masterpiece, standing out in a country where picture perfect landscapes abound. Relaxing stays in this area can be interrupted with morning hikes to the top of the plateau, taking roughly three hours and achieving altitude changes of close to 200 metres. There is a surprising diversity of wildlife roaming the plateau, and although you are unlikely to come across leopard, white rhino, zebra, buffalo and antelope on your trek, your guide will be able to point out signs of their presence, such as scat, tracks and disturbed vegetation.

Along the way there will be sweeping views of the Waterberg Wilderness Conservation and further across the surrounding sandveld of the area. Other attractions that your guide will highlight include intriguing sandstone formations, vast fig trees and a refreshing natural spring. Within the Waterberg Wilderness Reserve there is also a selection of unguided hiking trails, should you wish to discover the birds, animals and plants at your own leisure without shelling out for a guide.
