I’m particularly proud of this photo of a quiver tree (Kokerboom) which I took outside the Keetmanshoop Museum in Namibia. Namibia is a truly gorgeous country and its important to allow loads of time when planning a trip there …. so that you can rach the more remote destinations.
On this particular visit in December 2008, we spent some time in Keetmanshoop, which lies about 500 km south of Windhoek. It is both a traffic junction and economic centre for the south of Namibia, and a good spot to fill up with petrol and groceries if overlanding.
A bit of history – the town was founded as a mission station in 1866 and named after the German trader Johann Keetman who supported the mission financially. There is a museum in the old church where the illustrated history of Keetmanshoop is on display. We enjoyed a visit there and found this amazing Quiver tree just outside.
