Travelling to Namibia, I would say that it's a must stop, not a destination but most of the self-drivers pass through it. Ans you made it there, then a photo is a must! Is in the middle of nowhere but it makes you feel like...More

What is there to say, it's a sign at the side of the road, spoilt by lots of graffiti and stickers. A quick photo stop.
