(visited by Hendrik van Eeden, Jana van Eeden, Heidi van Eeden, Liesl van Eeden, Ferdinand Schenck, Ferdi Schenck, Fraser Schenck and Catherine Schenck)

24-Jun-2003 -- Continued from 27S 18E.

After the disappointment at 27S 18E we took the D459 turn-off at Goageb, turning right a bit later onto the D446. The Confluence lies about 500 m off this road.

From the Confluence the road follows a beautiful river valley to Aus. We spent two nights at Klein Aus just outside Aus and drove down to Lüderitz on the day in-between to visit the old ghost mining town of Kolmanskop.

Continued at 26S 17E.
