Spitzkoppe Overview

Also known as the Matterhorn of Namibia because of its shape, Spitzkoppe is a granite mountain located in central western Namibia.

The summit culminates at 1728m and 700m above the surroundings. It is not the highest mountain in the country (Brandberg) but certainly its most recognised landmark. It was first climbed in 1946.

It can be accessed with a normal car along a 30km gravel road starting from the Windhoek - Swakopmund tarred road, just West of Usakos.

There is an entrance fee to the Spitzkoppe area. Some bushman paintings can be seen in this area.
