Spitzkoppe is one of the most memorable places to stay in Namibia, a night spent here under the stars while the sounds of the desert whistle around the peaks is highly recommended to all visitors to Namibia.
Referred to as the Matterhorn of Namibia it towers 670 metres over the flat desert that surrounds it. Spitzkoppe actually means pointed dome in German and its easy to see why as the dramatic, bald granite peaks jut up into the clear blue sky during the day and at night they are crowned with a mantle of stars and you can gaze up and make a wish on the shooting stars that blaze across the night sky.
