Namibia somewhere. That rock "mountain" looks very much like a place on the Khomas Hochland.

Very wild guess. :?  :lol:

Near Sprinbok, Noheep area the little dam looks familiar.

Richtersveld.

About halfway between Kuboes and Eksteensfontein, east from the only road between that two dorpies. A near invisible jeep track leads for about 10km to what I would say is a secret corner, the perfect overnight spot, called Tiergrotte or something.  

On way home from our Nam Bam trip last month and after I broke away from the rest of the group I wanted to go and refresh my memories there but missed the turnoff completely. So now I have an excuse to go there sometime again.

Memories and trips?a terrible thing to productivity. :?

Ok now whom do I own a beer?
 :lol:

looks like Bloodkoppie in Nam, east of Langer Heinrich. the rough terrein in the background, north, is where you will find the Swakop River bed. and further west, the Tinkas river area...
