Day 22

Thursday 25 August 2005
Onduri Hotel, Outjo - Swakopmund Hotel, Swakopmund

Early on today, participants took in the natural wonders of the Rock Finger at Khorixhas and the fossilised trees at the nearby Petrified Forest, before arriving at Twyfelfontein, a beautiful lodge built into the side of the area's monumental rock landscape and host of a fine collection of bushmen's rock art.

The main event, however, was the subsequent 4x4 drive, which involved 65km of truly breathtaking scenery, including outstanding natural rock features and red, Martian landscapes, and which of course provided some challenging and rewarding driving. By the time everyone reached the end of the section, the delightful rhino reserve at Ugab, all participants were elated at having completed such an adventurous drive.

Hereafter, everyone bustled along to Swakopmund, a lovely Namibian town that features picturesque colonial architecture and some interesting shops. Emily I'Anson enjoyed her birthday here, and celebrated by taking in some of the town's bars with the younger participants - and Greg Williams.
