Some photos of the moon landscape in the Namib desert. As can be seen there is virtually no plant growth due to almost no rainfall.

Solitaire
An oasis in the desert near the C14 road. It is at the bottom of the Gaub-pass. Although it isn't a strong stream of water flowing out of the fountain, it is nice to find such a green spot in this dry part.

We took some photos of the mountains next to the road. It is interesting to see all the different colours. There is lots of different colours, the sky, sand and rocks. This is on the C27 road south of Sossusvlei and Sesriem. As far as I remember we did not see any animals for a very long distance around where this photos were taken, due to the long drought.

C27 mountain photos

Namibia Attractions, Hardap

Sesriem
We took these photos of the mountains and sand from the C27 road. As always there is a wide variety of colours that can be seen in the photo. The lonely springbok was standing on the road and in no hurry to get anywhere. Probably to conserve energy and moisture. We started to begin seeing some more plant growth from here on south. It might not look like it to you, but check the photos to the north from this to see what I mean. It was still... More details of this Namibia attraction here.C27 mountain photosX

The red drum

Namibia Attractions, Kunene

Orupembe
The red drum, also know as "Die rooi drom" is a land marker placed so that people know where they are. This was done way before the days of GPS.

The journey to the drum, is much better than the destination. Roads leading here are man made and driven out by 4x4. The Van Zyl's pass is also relatively nearby...The red drumX
Namibia Attraction, Driving down pass at Otjio
Driving down pass at Otjio

Namibia Attractions, Kunene

Opuwo
Driving down the pass we had to plan the route ahead as we had three 4x4's and two 2x4's. This road was rough with big boulders in, as any good 4x4 road should be. At one spot there was a deep hole in the road over which we had to drive. This could easily be used if we needed to work below one of the vehicles. This is the easier alternative to the Van Zyl's pass. It still has a lot of loose rocks. We were driving downhill from east to...
