Waterberg Plateau Park in central Namibia encompasses the Waterberg Plateau, the particularly prominent feature elevated high above the Kalahari plains, and some 405 km² of surrounding land. It is famous for having introduced endangered species that were translocated from areas where they were under threat from predators and poaching. In and around the plateau are a variety of animals including white and black rhino, sable and roan antelope, buffalo and the damara dik-dik. Around 200 species of birds have been records in the park, including Namibia's only colony of the endangered Cape Vulture.
Waterberg Resort, which is operated by Namibian Wildlife Resorts is nestled along the base of the cliffs of the Waterberg Plateau. It sits some 200m above the surrounding landscape and offers facilities including a restaurant, kiosk, (which is open outside restaurant hours) and adjacent to the reception office is a shop which stocks basic groceries, beer, wine, wood and souvenirs. The restaurant building dates from 1908 where it was used as the local police station for many years. There is also a swimming pool, with the newly built pool bar.
There are a few room types on offer at Waterberg resort including double rooms, premier bush chalets and family chalets. All the rooms have en-suite bathroom, a ceiling fan, a wardrobe, a dressing table with mirror, a couple of lounge chairs, tea/coffee making facilities and a mini-fridge.
