We headed west from Otjitotongwe and after a couple of hours reached a 'petrified forest'. It wasn't exactly a forest, huge trees had been swept down a river and then lay there marooned and gradually turned to stone. So there were huge petrified logs scattered over the landscape and millions of pieces of fossilized wood. The scenery was fabulous. It's hard to describe the landscape, but pale green is now my favourite colour.
We reached the campsite after lunch and then headed off again to visit a couple of rock formation and then to some stone carvings which are said to be around 6,000 years old. From there we went to a very posh lodge for cocktails at sunset.
