The Spitzkoppe is a group of bald granite peaks located between Usakos and Swakopmund in the Namib desert. The granite is more than 700 million years old and the highest outcrop rises about 1,800 metres above sea level. The peaks stand out dramatically from the flat surrounding plains. The highest peak is about 700 metres above the floor of the desert below. Other prominences stretch out into a range known as the Pontok Mountains.
Many examples of Bushmen artwork can be seen painted on the rock in the Spitzkoppe area.
