Brandberg Mountain Range

Namibia's highest mountain the Brandberg Mountain Range is situated in the Erongo region in the western part of Namibia, ninety kilometres from the Atlantic Ocean and covers an area of 760 square kilometres. 

The Range gets its name from an almost black appearance and the bright colours that the setting sun paints onto the mountains as if the whole area was on fire.   

Famous for numerous rock paintings, some  2000 to 4000-years-old, a large number of different animal paintings can be seen, an indication that wildlife must have been abundant during the time when the San bushmen roamed this area and used the ‘Burnt Mountains’ as a navigational point.
