Around 200 million years ago Namibia was covered by a shallow sea, which gradually filled with wind-blown sand and eroded silt. Near the tiny town of Kalkfeld, these sand stone layers bear the evidence of a 25m dinosaur stroll which took place 170 million years ago. The prints were made in what was then soft clay by a three-toed dinosaur that walked on its hind legs - probably a forerunner of modern birds. The tracks are 29km from Kalkfeld on Otjihaenamparero Farm, just off route D2414. The site was declared a national monument in 1951, but visits are still subject to the farmer's permission. Phone code: 067. Police: 10111.
