Naukluft Mountains - A mountain range full of surprises


Both its formation and its mysterious 80 km shift south, as well as its historic value as habitat for the San thousands of years ago and as refuge and hiding place during the war of the 19th and 20th century render the Naukluft Mountains one of the most interesting places in Namibia. 

Today the Naukluft Mountains are an important tourist destination and protected nature reserve boasting impressive landscapes, fascinating flora and fauna and many hiking trails.
