  Directions

 

 

 

 22   Petrified Forest.  From Khorixas drive the C39 West for 45kms. The Reception Office for the attraction is on the North side of the road.   Entry Fees Payable

Ancient Cordaites Trees, some 45 meters in height were flattened during a great deluge over 260 million years ago. The tres were buried in sediment and fossilized. The fossilized bark, wood grain and even tree rings can be seen.

Guided Tours only 1- 2 hours


 20  Twyfelfontein and   21  Burnt Mountain  & Organ Pipes:

The Burnt Mountain: Unusual Geological phenomena. In prehistoric times organic material accumulated on the bottom of a lake bed. This was later covered by sedimentary deposits and buried. During the Break-up of Gondwana hot magma pushed upwards and when coming into contact with the organic material baked it. The remaining rock is quite colourful in certain sunlight conditions. Minimum time visit: 30 minutes.


Organ Pipes: Unusual Geological feature similar to the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland whereby up-thrusting molten rock formed into polygon shaped pipes owing to surrounding constrictions. Minimum time visit: 30 minutes.


Twyfelfontein: Home to the largest single group of Bushman Rock Engravings in the world. Over 2,500 depictions of animals, humans and glyphs on 200 rock slabs plus rock paintings. Guided Tours  1 -2 hours   Entry Fees Payable


Directions From Khorixas:  Drive the C39 road West about 55kms. You will pass the Petrified Forest on your right about 45kms from Khorixas.

A further 5 km along the road is the signed junction for Twyfelfontein.

Directions From Uis: Drive the C35 road North towards Khorixas. After driving about 72kms you will see the left turn to the D2612 (there is also a sign for the Mowani Camp). Drive this road for 65kms and you will see the sign on the left D3214 Twyfelfontein. Further directions as above

   
 24   Cape Cross:  Henties Bay is 72kms north of Swakopmund on the C34 Salt Road. Cape Cross is a further 50kms.

In January 1486 the Portuguese mariner explorer Diogo Co erected a stone cross (Padrao) on this rocky outcrop and marked the furthest southerly point that Europeans had reached along the African Coastline. The original cross was removed by the Germans in 1893. The Kaiser ordered a replica cross, also bearing his crest, to be placed at the place. In 1980 an almost exact replica cross was made in Namibia and placed on the exact location of the original Padrao. Cape Cross is also home to the largest Cape Fur Seal (Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus) Colony on any mainland.

There is an office of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism on site. Toilet facilities. No restaurant.

Visiting hours are from 10h00 to 17h00   Entry Fees Payable

 25  The White Lady of Brandberg: On the C35 Road 10km North of Uis turn west onto the D2359. Drive 21km and arrive at the Daures Guide's office where you will be escorted on the tour.   Entry Fees Payable

The White Lady of Brandberg. A painting shrouded in controversy and mystique that became the most famous piece of Rock Art on the continent of Africa. The mural is 5,5meters in length. Many of the other figures on the painting are often overlooked. The mural is a fascinating piece of ancient art giving us an insight to Bushman culture over 2000 years ago.
