The Omaruru River offers the opportunity for various activities such as walking, 4×4 driving as well as excellent picnic sites. The “old fig tree” is a well-known and popular picnic site not far from Henties Bay.
Overnight camping in the Dorob Park south of the Omdel Dam is not allowed.
One can also drive up the sandy river bed past the Omdel Dam to the Skoenklip and exit the river at Lêwater to follow the route to the Spitzkoppe – or vice versa.
Overnight camping north of the Omdel dam is allowed, but make sure you do not attempt that during the rainy season.
GPS coordinates are available from the Tourist Office.
