It is a long drive from Swakopmund and the light on the escarpment is quite stunning at dusk and Dawn but not really worth the long detour. The path up to the escarpment viewing point is very dangerous.

Yes. You can hike up to the plateau on a sign-posted path. It is not very strenuous and the views are breathtaking. Definitely worth your while
