Spitzkoppe Guided Day Tour. Drive along the coast where you will see a shipwreck, lichen fields and the popular fishing village of Henties Bay. Then head onwards to the famous Spitzkoppe mountain for some relaxation and the chance for fantastic photography.The Spitzkoppe Day Tour passengers will be collected from their accommodation in Swakopmund ± 09h00, by a guide and a 4x4 vehicle. The drive inland heads to the stark grandeur of Gross Spitzkoppe. (1728m above sea level and often described as the 'Matterhorn' of Namibia because of it's shape, and the highest peak is about 700m above the desert floor below.) On this drive your guide will offer detailed explanations about the surroundings and of course the Spitzkoppe, a perennial challenge to the serious mountaineer. (It's summit was first scaled only in 1946.) The mountains are brilliantly coloured and rise abruptly out of the surrounding plains and is visible from great distances away.
