Organ Pipes Namibia
Walking Among the Organ Pipes
While you're in Damaraland, the Organ Pipes are just a short drive away from Twyfelfontein and the Petrified Trees. After paying a small tip for a guide to accompany us (there was no real indication if this is necessary or not so we just rolled with it) we descended down into a crevice to walk among the rock formations. No explanation is needed as to why this area got it's nickname. Each rock has a different hue, ranging from grey to reddish orange. The basalt rock is exposed over time as the land erodes away. It didn't take very long to walk a short loop to the exit, but it was an interesting sight to see.
