African savannah with shrubs and acacias, sandy dry riverbeds, massive granite mountain tops and table mountains are characteristic of the wildly romantic scenery of Damaraland. Namibia's original inhabitants carved animals and mysterious symbols into the reddish-brown sandstone at Twyfelfontein, now a World Heritage site.
The Vingerklip rock stack of solidified sediments, the Organ Pipes of basalt and the tree trunks of stone on the other hand are nature's works of art. Springbok and oryx antelope graze in the savannah; the famous desert-adapted elephants move through the dry riverbeds. More nearby tourist attractions include the Burnt Mountain, Dorros crater, and the Petrified Forest. The World Heritage Site covers the area of rock engravings.
