Explore the plateau that serves as a home to several of Namibia's endangered species at Waterberg National Park. Started in the early 1970s as a project to move threatened animals to a sheltered, largely inaccessible place and protect them from predators and poachers, the successful park now supplies rare animals to other parks in Namibia. See 200 different species of birds, rock stratum millions of years old, and game such as rhinos and giraffes. For a cultural component, take a tour of the tribal villages and learn about the history of the local people.
