Rising 500m above the Khomas Hochland about 120 southwest of Windhoek, the 2347masl Gamsberg Mountain is a table-top mountain with a distinctive quartzite sandstone summit, offering views towards the Namib-Naukluft Mountains to the south. The area is renowned for the dramatic Gamsberg Pass and its exceptionally clear skies and lack of light pollution which makes for fantastic stargazing. There are plenty of walking and hiking trails (some arduous) through beautiful scenery, nature drives and sundowner drives available. The Gamsberg is also a place to simply relax and enjoy the splendid isolation and star-studded African night.
