Namibia Day 12 Waterberg Plateau

We camped on green grass below the long red sandstone ridge of the plateau. A walk to the summit took us past rock hyrax and baboons, who stood above us squealing their obvious ownership of this patch. At the top a sign warned us to go no further as there were buffalo, rhino and other dangerous animals in the vicinity. The view was worth the climb. Hawk eagles were riding the thermals and the flat plain stretched out as far as the eye could see. A plaque, halfway up. Stated that two Germans had died here while climbing the cliff face.
