Because of the fact that legislation regarding the Brandberg issue is not transparent, as well as the rather incompetence of the public
administration, it is recommended that visitors refrain from visiting the Brandberg. An application to visit the mountain has to be lodged prior to
the visit. A permit at a fee is required and a guide (an extra daily tariff of N$800 to N$ 1000) has to be hired. No clear information regarding the
matter has been received from the relative Ministry. There were unfortunately already incidents where hikers were arrested!
