Christoffelberg is visible from pretty much anywhere on the western side of the island, and if you're up for a challenging hike through a desert landscape, I'd give it a go. You must start the hike from the bottom of the mountain by 10 AM at the latest (one of the official maps erroneously says 11 AM) but I would honestly start much earlier if possible. The hike gets steep quickly and while it only takes about an hour to reach the top, it can get exhausting and it'll be worse in 30 *C heat with the sun directly overhead. Bring 2 litres of water (there's a fountain at the visitor centre). The final section at the summit involves a fair bit of scrambling up rocks, so be sure you're physically fit enough. Along the way, I saw several hummingbirds, lots of lizards, a bee hive and some interesting plants, and once I got to the summit, a huge iguana! Getting to the national park is easiest by car, but if that's not an option, you get get any Konvoi bus (the bus white ones) heading to Sabana for ANG 2.20. The only reason I wouldn't give 5 stars is because the entry fee (ANG 25) is a little steep.

We didn’t do the mountain climb. I had a bum knee at the time so tried to avoid the “challenging” hikes. We did the Plantation/Boke Grande hike. It’s about 5km, but do be aware there are a number of stairs on this route. Some are normal depth and some of the steps are an effort. Make sure you have enough water. Loved the melon cactus and the Brazil wood trees. Some of the plantation buildings were locked up when we were there. Also, it seems to be arbitrary whether you get to go or not. The first day we went we arrived at 1105h. The website said the park was open until 1400h and noted you could not start to climb mount Christoffel after 1000h. We were told we couldn’t start any of the walks after 1100h so we said we would come back. Two days later we returned and began our walk around 1000h We stopped and took photos and spent some time at the Boke beach. The whole hike took about 2.75hrs. would have been shorter if knee was working properly. We got back around noon and there were people starting out on their walks. Something to keep in mind. Worth a visit though.
