This title introduces an unspoilt and little-known part of Namibia - the Waterberg, which has been declared a biosphere reserve by the United Nations. For many years overlooked by developers and tourists alike, this quiet region possesses a natural splendour. It is home to large populations of game and encompasses some important historic and prehistoric sites. The authors trace the history of the Waterberg, from its geological formation to the first human settlements. They focus on the people whose presence and activities have impacted on its development and describe the natural splendour of the flauna and flora and, most significantly, they detail modern-day developments, specifically, the move from farming to conservation - a trend that might preserve the natural features and inhabitants from more invasive practices. An appendix provides tourist information for the region on what to do and where to stay.
