Waterberg Plateau Park has beautiful scenery, but wildlife is difficult to spot without staying at a private reserve. I only spent one night here and, having been to Etosha National Park, I was there for the scenery and not for the wildlife.

Nice stop on the way to Etosha
Overall rating

I've spent just an afternoon at Waterberg, anyway trail is good and easy to walk without a guide.
At the top there is a really nice view of the plateau and the country around.
Unluckily there are many monkeys around and sometimes they can be aggressive also if you stay away from them, they even broke our car antenna while we were trekking!

More history than wildlife
Overall rating

The Waterberg is not as interesting for the wildlife as one could expect, especially when Etosha is so close. However, the dirt roads inside and around it are really pleasant to drive. The cliffs of the plateau are impressive, particularly at sunset. The most interesting about the Waterberg Plateau is that it makes an opportunity to learn about the history of Namibia, as the Herero fought the Germans at this exact place. There is a German war cemetery within the park boundaries. For the rest, Etosha provides much more for the same price (or less).

The other parks offer more wildlife experiences than the Waterburg Plateau
