Waterkloof Trail


Hiking trail in the Naukluft Mountains: For visitors who love being active during their holiday in Namibia the “Waterkloof Trail” is highly recommendable. The 17-kilometer-long trail winds along small creeks of the Naukluft Mountains in the Namib Naukluft Park and leads through beautiful, varying landscapes. The trail offers various swimming possibilities in natural pools as well. 

It takes about 6-8 hours to complete the trail. The difficulty is medium to hard. You should have a very good endurance and should be physically fit and trained in hiking.

From the shady base camp, managed by the Namibian Wildlife Resort, a path winds along a fountain of excellent drinking water to a crystal-clear pool with -for Namibian standards- ice-cold, refreshing water – a perfect spot to take a refreshing plunge! The hike continues through pristine mountain landscapes up to a moderately difficult summit, from where you can enjoy an exceptional view of the Naukluft Mountains. After a first leisurely, later sometimes steep descent, you will find some pools and springs where you can relax and cool off before continuing through a scenic gorge back to the camp.
