The Waterberg Plateau, together with the 41,000ha of surrounding land, was declared a Nature Reserve in 1972. Some of Namibia's endangered species such as the black and white rhino, sable antelope, tssessbe, buffalo and wildebeest have been introduced into the area to protect them from predators and poaching. This reintroduction programme was such a success that the Waterberg now in fact supplies other Namibian parks with rare animals.
The Waterberg Plateau Lodge is nestled on a rock terrace high up on the slope of the Waterberg, affording grand vistas of the endless Kalahari bush savannah below. Guests are accommodated in 8 luxury chalets including a walk-in shower and lounge area. Each chalet is constructed of stone and brick, with bright red corrugated iron roofs and a private patio and plunge pool to provide a refreshing respite from the hot Namibian sun.
Waterberg Plateau Lodge is a small satellite-lodge linked closely with its sister lodge, Waterberg Wilderness Lodge. Meals can be had at that lodge or indeed at Plateau Lodge in the restaurant with 270 degree view. There is also a fireplace, lounge, bar, main swimming pool and observation deck.
Situated at the edge of the Waterberg Plateau, half way between Windhoek and Etosha National Park, approximately 3.5 hours drive from Windhoek. There is an airstrip near to the lodge should guests arrive by light aircraft.
Plateau hikes, rhino drives, game tracking, nature trails and cultural and historical tours to Hereoland.
