The moonscape is a totally barren, undulating, rocky desert which was formed by the valleys of the Swakop river. Millions of years ago the river carved deep canyons into the granite rock, producing breathtaking geo-landscapes. It truly is an unspoilt precious place, a true reminder of the wonder that is nature. It's an easy drive that offers a sense of adventure and taste of the Namib Desert. See amazing views from this unique location full of beauty while relishing in the golden hour before the incredible Namibian night sky opens up it's starry splendour. We enter the Swakopmund River heading back home past the small holdings and the Rossmund Golf Course.
