The Bloed Koppie

The Bloed Koppie is a spectacular granite hill ideal for the enegetic to explore. Smaller than the Spitskoppe the Bloedkoppie still offers ample opportunities to explore and take photographs. Visiting the Bloedkoppie and the 4x4 trail requires a permit obtainable in Swakopmund. 

At the Bloedkoppie there are a number of "dry" campsites situated around the granite outcrop. At the back are more secluded campsites with a number of trees. 

From the Bloedkoppie there is a 4x4 trail of about 30 kilometers joining up with the C28. On this route there are two old German war graves dating back to 1895. There is also the remains of a German "fort" nearby. A short detour will take you to the Tinkas Dam. 

There is another campsite at the rock arch on the 4x4 route. 

Along the route one is bound to encounter interesting rock formations, quiver trees and quite often Springbuck and Mountain Zebra.

Please note that visiting the Bloedkoppie and the 4x4 trail requires a permit obtainable at the offices of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism offices in Swakopmund, Walvis Bay or Windhoek.
