I began to realize that Namibia is truly a unique and beautiful country, on multiple levels. As you travel within, it's not unusual to simply stop and gaze at a plant, tree, rock or even listen to a bird sing. Unless you've visited or have lived in country, it will likely be an unfamiliar sight or sound. This is one of the aspects I took the most from visiting Namibia. Its uniqueness and often little influence from the outside world, with the exception of a few Colonel Sanders (KFC's), makes it a country worth considering to visit. One of the recommended stops within Twyfelfontein are the Organ Pipes. Over 100 million years ago, molten rock pushed up onto the earth's surface. The edges of the molten rock began to cool, whereas the center was still in motion and confined due its now more solid edges. As cooling and contracted occurred, the rock split vertically eventually forming these unique column shapes, made of dolerite. The stretch of this unique rock formation is about 100m and can reach up to 5m in height. As a final note, the organ pipes are within a small gorge, not far from the parking. There is no signage so don't be that silly guy that passes it up and waste about 30 mins (this guy).
