The Spitzkoppe lies west of Usakos, and it is one of Namibia’s most photographed and painted outcrops of granite. These granite rocks are intrusive and were formed by the slow cooling of molten masses below the earth’s surface.

Granite is a widespread rock found in abundance across Namibia, but none are as stunning as those found at the Spitzkoppe. The Spitzkoppe is particularly special because interesting plants, birds and other wildlife are found in the surroundings.
