entirely of quartz. It sits right beside the main road.

· Bit by bit the yellow desert sands east of the road start to become pierced by chalky rock formations. s

you get further into the 300-sq-km White Desert Protectorate, you’ll notice that the surreal shapes start

to take on familiar forms: chickens, ostriches, camels, hawks and other uncanny shapes abound. Two flattopped

mountains known as the Twin Peaks, a key navigation point for travelers. A favorite destination:

the view from the top of the surrounding symmetrical hills, all shaped like giant anthills, is spectacular.

Kids will delight in coming up with shape associations, and photographers will fill up their memory cards

trying to capture the brilliant hues of the setting sun reflecting off the inselbergs’ shiny surfaces. Waking
