Fiume Lodge Grootfontein Namibia

Day 2: Fiume Bush Lodge, Otavi Mountain Region
We are proceeding in a northerly direction via the Hoba Meteorite to Fiume Bush Lodge, where you can have a glimpse into the lives of the ancient San people during the bushman walk tomorrow.

The largest known meteorite ever to hit the planet is thought to have done so approximately 80,000 years ago, when it landed in a remote part of Namibia. It was only unearthed many centuries later in 1920, when a farmer tilling his fields stumbled upon it. It was excavated but not transported, due to its stupendous weight of approximately 60 tons, and today can still be viewed at the original site of its discovery. Thought to be between 200 and 400 million years old, it is the biggest organic chunk of iron known to man, but also contains traces of substances which do not occur naturally on earth. It measures roughly three metres by three metres, with an average thickness of approximately one metre.
