"Outjo - just like that." Outjo by Myndo

Outjo Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 42 photos

Outjo is for most people only a stopover on the way to the Etosha National Park.
The city itself is good for restocking on Food and Gas, but nothiing really special.

Close by (well, relatively speaking) there is a spectacular Landscape, the Ugab Terraces.

The high land has been cut down by the Ugab River, until the Canyons became only some stone-"pillars", comparable with the Monument Valley in America.
The best known is the "Vingerklip". Vinger=Finger, because it is so thin and high.

If you stay on the tarred road you will miss this. Get off it and get out (see my tips for the route).
