English version

French:

02-Déc-2003 -- En route pour le parc animalier d'Etosha et après avoir déjà visité 3 points en Namibie, venant de 20S 17E nous avons fait un petit détour en direction de Grootfontein pour y voir la météorite de Hoba, la plus grosse au monde, et profiter de visiter un 4ème point de confluence. Sur la route Otavi - Grootfontein, 29 km avant d'atteindre cette ville, nous avons pris la D2804, puis la D2825. Cette belle piste sablonneuse nous a amenés à 120 mètres du point. Les photos des points cardinaux ont été prises du sommet de l'arbre mort situé à 10 mètres du point afin de mieux voir les environs.

Continué à 19S 16E.

02-Dec-2003 -- On the way to the Etosha National Park and after having already visited three points in Namibia, coming from 20S 17E we made a little detour towards Grootfontein to see Hoba's meteorite, the biggest in the world, and tried to visit a fourth confluence point. On the Otavi - Grootfontein road, 29 km before reaching the town, we took the D2804 and then the D2825. This nice sandy trail leaded us close to 120 m of the spot. The pictures of the cardinal points were taken from the top of the dead tree, located 10 m of the point, so to better see the surroundings.

Continued at 19S 16E.
