Vingerklip Accommodation

Also known as the Kalk Kegel or "limestone skittle", the Vingerklip is a 35 m high limestone rock sitting on a 44 m circumference base. This unusual landmark was formed by erosion of the Ugab River floodplain over a period of 30 million years.

There is no fee to explore the site, and there are numerous walks that offer different angles of view of the unusual skittle.

Perhaps the best is to be had from the Vingerklip Lodge itself, which will sell the heat-sapped day visitor meal or snack, and even provide a swim in one of their pools.

The Ugab Terrace is visible all along the valley, and offers good hiking opportunities.
