The story behind the image

This is the Vingerklip, a tall monolithic rock – resembling a finger – that dominates the landscape of the Ugab Terraces between Outjo and Khorixas. It can be accessed conveniently from the road D2743 towards the Vingerklip Lodge. In fact, the rock is on the premises of the lodge, but you may visit the rock even without being a guest of the lodge. In case you wonder, the rock is about 35 meters (115 ft) high.

A short walk (about 5 minutes) leads up to the Vingerklip, and it offers great views from up there.
