The nearby Spitskop hill is very interesting. Geologists say that this hill (on a clear day you can see it from 40 km away) was formed through erosion of the earth’s crust.

On top of the Spitskop near the Kalahari Monate Lodge, is a telescope for game viewing – here you will have quite a unique vantage point!
