The Waterberg is a Nature Reserve consisting of the Waterberg Plateau and 41,000ha of surrounding land. The plateau serves as a conservation area for several of Namibia’s endangered species including black and white rhino, sable, and blue wildebeest. Due to the largely inaccessibility of the plateau these species are free from predators and poaching.
The Waterberg area consists of a massive stretch of land west of Otjiwarongo, north of Okahandja and east of Omaruru. The two most notable geographic landmarks are the Waterberg Plateau and the Omatako Mountains.
