Really it’s just a sign in the middle of the desert but it was fabulous to see it and understand what it represents. If travelling along the road it’s a must stop and a photo op.

There are more stickers on the sign now.. Fun to take a picture while driving by, but the results are unimpressive. There was actually a queue for groups waiting to take pictures!

It's just a sign, but it's always exciting to cross a tropic! Took the classic picture like everyone else.

The sign is in the middle of nowhere. It's great to know when you move between the Tropics. This is our second time - the first was in a different continent.

It's always special crossing a Tropic. The scenery is really lovely here. I suppose everybody stops to take a picture.

Another memorable moment on our Namibia trip of which there were so many. You just have to stop and take photos!

You cannot drive past this sign without stopping for a photo, its a must. Be careful as fair bit of traffic on the road.

A worthy place to stop on a busy road for a photo record of your trip in Namibia. The road is busy so do park clear and take care.
