    We decided to visit Naute Kristall because we were already familiar with their renowned Dandy Brandy. We had a tasting and a quick lunch, which turned out to be an excellent and informative experience. We purchased some Dandy Brandy to take with us. However, there was a shortage of stock at that moment. Nonetheless, the remarkable owners went above and beyond by specially bottling and delivering our order to us later that same evening, at the Canyon Roadhouse. Their exceptional service left a lasting impression. I hope to see your products on South African shelves very soon!

    The Giant’s Playground was striking, and fun to walk through. The walking path is fairly well signed, although I got off-path towards the end and wandered for a bit before picking it up again. Bring plenty of water and a hat if you go during the day. The Quivertree forest was less appealing to me; you can see plenty of it from outside on the road and I didn’t get much from walking closer. But the ticket includes admission to both places, so you may as well walk in the trees for a bit.

    We tried to visit but failed to get hold of Giel for several days. We visited in the hope that there was information that would let us do a self guided tour but unfortunately we were unlucky. All reports speak highly of it so we were really disappointed. We found some nice books and photos in the office which was open so he obviously is extremely well informed. The toilets were also accessible. We met another tourist who had failed to contact Giel looking for a camping site. We know that when we next visit Namibia we need to make arrangements much earlier.

    It took us an hour to drive from the turning off the B1 to the car park at the lower camp site. The roads were good quality gravel up to that point. We left our car there and walked up the 4x4 track to the upper campsite which is at the entrance to the crater. It took half an hour. So, total time from when we turned off the B1 till when we got back to the B1 was three hours. We stayed overnight at Quivertree Forest Restcamp. Not great, but visited Quivertree Forest and Giants Playground the following day. We couldn't have visited Brukkaros, the forest or the playground if we had not stayed in the Keetmanshoop area.
    By the way, the 4x4 track is no longer suitable for vehicles.

    The viewpoint is a lovely spot to look out over the dam. There were various water birds to observe and it makes a nice backdrop for photographs. Binoculars are definitely recommended.

    There is now a museum in the Rhenish mission church, which was been inaugurated in 1895, May 8th, the previous church which was washed away by the river Aub in 1890.
    In addition to religious memorabilia the museum contains a display about Nama history and culture with a detailed display of local plants and their traditional uses by the Nama community. The garden around the museum contains several of the plants that feature in the exhibition and a scale model of a traditional Nama hut

    The “Eagle Monument” in Keetmanshoop commemorates the German soldiers who were killed in the Herero and Nama wars in 1897, 1903 and 1906-1907 respectively. It is shaped in the form of an obelisk and topped with the German Imperial eagle in bronze.

    The NG congregation Keetmanshoop is a congregation of the Dutch Reformed Church. It is the third oldest NG congregation in the country after Mariental (founded in 1898 ) and Otjiwarongo (founded in 1902).
    Looks well maintained

    I believe the Railway station is past its glory now that there isn't passenger services, some rails are not in use, a lot of standby wagons.

    Its still a good place for pictures though as my sons had a great time running on the tracks and taking pictures
