Tourist information is available here. It’s the only souvenir shop around for a very very long distance. Except for about 1000 places selling gemstones in and around town. Don’t be afraid to haggle. May not work, but you can only try. At least one guidebook calls this place African Curios Shop. Maybe a past name?
This small museum is housed in the Franke House. It was built in 1899 and served as the military residence for the German Army garrison. There is a small admission fee and they are open from 10am-12:30pm and 3-5pm Monday through Friday.
At Oujto i saw my first (and only) Himba tribe people. They usually don´t go as far as this town. There were a couple of girls, they looked so arrogant and secure of themselves that i couldn´t take them a picture.
I am sure my with-travelers doubted my choose of road. Going off the (seldom enough) tarred road right onto a side-road of gravel that is parted by gates you have to open by hand. The gates belong to the farms and they are closed so the cattle can not get out. But you are allowed to drive through -just keep closing the gates again.
After several km the land drops and you come to a wonderful view over the Ugab-Terraces.
An old river -the Ugab has left these stone-pillars standing in the landscape - like in Amerika, the Monument Valley.
The most popular one is Vingerklip. 44m diameters and 35m high. It stands like a finger -hence the name.
You can go and have a look at it from up close.
There is also a Lodge here. (I don´t know how it is)
Yep, cash in a real flash. They have a BOB ATM right in the main Square and at least another 2 ATM’s around here somewhere.
