Standing finger Klip

To see this strange rock (the one still standing in the north) you will need to drive on the gravel road from Xhorixas towards Outjo. Don't worry, the road is really good. "Vinger Klip" is Afrikaans for "Finger Rock".

Organ pipes

The side of the valley are lined with dolerite columns. It is not always easy to find. Look for signs saying "Orelpype" which is the Afrikaans word for organ pipes.
