Stop At: Petrified Forest, Khorixas Namibia
The Petrified forest, located 42 kilometres (26 mi) west of the Namibian town of Khorixas, is a deposit of large tree trunks that have "turned to stone" through a process of diagenesis.

It is believed that the trees were swept downstream by a large flood and covered by alluvial sands. Deprived of air, the organic matter could not rot and decay, but instead, over millions of years, underwent silicification, whereby each cell is individually fossilised and the appearance, if not the colour, of wood is retained. The surrounding sands became sandstone, which is now eroding away.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Twyfelfontein, Namibia
Twyfelfontein is an Afrikaans name meaning doubtful or uncertain spring.The site has been inhabited for 6,000 years, first by hunter-gatherers and later by Khoikhoi herders. Both ethnic groups used it as a place of worship and a site to conduct shamanist rituals. In the process of these rituals at least 2,500 items of rock carvings have been created, as well as a few rock paintings. Displaying one of the largest concentrations of rock petroglyphs in Africa, UNESCO approved Twyfelfontein as Namibia's first World Heritage Site in 2007
