What to See on Your Next Africa Tour
The beautiful town of Spitzkoppe, Namibia was formed from the Lake Mangane. It is one of Namibia’s oldest cities and as such is renowned for its desert and lake views. It is also home to the Zulus who have made this their home. The history of the town goes back to when the Black Man was found here by the Dutch. From this vantage point the Black Man could spot the Dutch ships coming back and forth and would warn them not to come near his land.
It was also here that John van Rooy went on a quest to find the place where the Blacks lived. He became known as the “desert wise man” because he knew where they lived and where they dug. He was able to tell them about a city called Spitzkoppe which was nearby. This is where modern-day Spitzkoppe Hotel was built. It is also where one of the last Black women, Maramba managed to escape from the Dutch in the 1800s.
