Dicker Wilhelm with Wild Horses in front
|Elevation||1,496 m (4,908 ft)|
Dikwillem (Afrikaans) or Dicker Wilhelm (German), also known as Garub-Berg or Garubberg, is a very striking mountain in Namibia, well visible from a great distance and from all directions. Dikwillem has an elevation of 1496 meters. The mountain lies within the Namib desert, about 15 kilometers north of the National Road B4 and about 80 kilometers east of Lüderitz.
The harsh environment and barren plains around Garub became habitat of the desert horses of the Namib. They are said to be descendants from German cavalry horses and adapted to the conditions and dry climate of the desert.
