The Brandberg is the highest inselberg in
Namibia. Due to the basalt plains which envelop the northern
slopes, the vegetation is slightly different to elsewhere. The
rock paintings, especially the "White Lady" are world famous
attract thousands of tourists each year.
Endemic plants represent an important
element of the vegetation. As the Brandberg is large enough to
support the isolation of populations and the evolution of
unique species, a high level of biodiversity and endemism is
expected to exist there.
