Brandberg Mountain, Damaraland

#13 of 36 in Nature in Namibia
Take a hike upon Brandberg Mountain, the Namibia’s highest mountain. The name of the mountain comes from the German words, which mean ‘Fire Mountain’, as the mountain sometimes glows red in the setting sun. Visit the rock painting of The White Lady, located among numerous other paintings and art in the ravine at the foot of the mountain. The place is considered to be sacred and of great significance to the Bushman tribes. See also the diversity of plant life endemic to the area, in grotesque forms adapted to the extreme climate of the area.
