We had to head 125 km east to skirt around the Restricted Area 1 of the diamond company. We went as far as Aus and turned south. As we neared Aus, we encountered the wild horses of the Namib desert at Garub. We saw a couple dozen of them, but most looked scrawny and in poor condition. Nobody knows for sure where the horses came from, but the herd ranges from 80-250 and stays mostly in this same area.
A desert horse of the Namib, near Aus.
Truly a desert shot where water doesn't last long.
Someone has a sense of humor and business here. The sign says "Fabulous Bar" on the hot, tin building with no windows. Hope you like your beer warm.
Looking down into the canyon. There were no fences anywhere. Just the railings at the viewing pavilion.
Having breakfast at Seeheim. Kudu sausages and eggs, with toast, fruit, yogurt and cereal available, too. Our dinner the previous night was kudu steaks, chips and salad. Quite tender and tasty.
We had to backtrack from Seeheim to Keetmanshoop, about 45 km east to get fuel, a new tire and hubcap. While the men had the new tire put on, Myra and I walked down to this old church that is now a museum. We didn't have time to go in, but liked the stone structure with old farm machines outside.
He did good work on the baskets. We filled up with gas and headed off to make tracks towards the dunes of Sossusvlei.
