Why

As small as small towns get this is it. This used to be the place where most who come to this area of Namibia get their supplies. Another place has opened up in Sesriem just south of here, but its still a place to stop. It also has accommodations as well in case you are tired and can’t make the entire trip. Plus the apple crumb pie is pretty amazing at the onsite Bakery.
