"The Ugab-Terraces and Vingerklip" Top 5 Page for this destination Landscapes, meteorites and rock formations Tip by Myndo

by Myndo

I am sure my with-travelers doubted my choose of road. Going off the (seldom enough) tarred road right onto a side-road of gravel that is parted by gates you have to open by hand.
The gates belong to the farms and they are closed so the cattle can not get out. But you are allowed to drive through -just keep closing the gates again.

After several km the land drops and you come to a wonderful view over the Ugab-Terraces.
An old river -the Ugab- has left these stone-pillars standing in the landscape - as in Amerika, the Monument Valley.

The most popular one is Vingerklip. 44m diameters and 35m high. It stands like a finger -hence the name.

You can go and have a look at it from up close.

There is also a Lodge here. (I don?t know how it is)

Directions: From Khorixas to Outjo: go off C39 onto D2743.
It is a bypass, you can go back to C39 later.
