Namibia’s Giant’s Playground
Not far from the Quiver tree Forest is the Giant’s Playground. Here, mighty dolerite and basalt rock formations balance precariously one on top of another to form what looks like a giant geometrical puzzle. These have stood here for around 180 million years and, combined with the Quiver tree Forest, make for a very photogenic excursion.
The unusual rock formations were caused by the erosion of underling sedimentary rock around 170 million years ago.
Do not attempt to climb any of the rocks, no matter how tempting it may be to do so, as not all of them can take the weight and may topple over!
