quivertree4Gariganus Quivertree Forest
The best time to photograph the Quiver trees on the Farm Gariganus is at sunset. The farm lies some 13 kms north-east of Keetmanshoop and the untarred access is well sign-posted.  The so-called "Giants' Playground" lies next to the Quivertree Forest. A walking trail of less than an hour leads through a bizarre rocky terrain. Not really a must!

Accommodation on the farm is offered in plastic igloos, not very comfortable and a bit stuffy. A campground is also available, clean but very simple. The accommodation options in Keetmanshoop town are much nicer.

//Garas Quivertree Campsite
Another, no less impressive "Quivertree Forest" lies directly on the B1, 20 kilometres north of Keetmanshoop. A plain campgropund. Tel 063-223217.
