Hiking / Walking Trails

The Spitzkoppe is known to contain at least 37 rock art sites and test excavations at one of these revealed a well preserved archeological sequence spanning the last 4000 years. Evidence from the excavation include a wide range of stone artifacts used in hunting weaponry and in the preparation of animal hides, as well as the remains of hunted game and plant foods. From this evidence it appears that the Spitzkoppe served as a dry season base with reliable food and water resources. The rock painting sites at Spitzkoppe contain a number of motives that are closely associated with rain making rituals. In Namibia, the archeological evidence of rain making relates to entire landscapes, such as the Spitzkoppe, rather than to individual painted rock shelters.

These sites can only be visited with a guide due to their vulnerability and can be booked at the reception upon arrival.
