The separation of supercontinent Gondwana into Africa and South America 125 million years ago was the cause of several geological curiosities in Namibia's Damaraland. The Organ Pipes are one of these spectacles. They can be sound south of Twyfelfontein and are the remains of molten rock pushing up through the Earth's surface. The name comes from these vertical basalt slabs similarity in appearance to organ pipes. Some of them stand five metres tall. The fascinating straight lines and geometrical shapes are a source of intrigue not only for geologists but also for photographers. Just a short walk from here is a small inselberg named the Burnt Mountain, a national monument. The name for this becomes apparent in the early mornings and late evenings when rays on sunlight give the impression of setting the mountain on fire. The Manganese coated clay molecules cause rich red colours mixed with shades of black and purple. During the day on the other hand the inselberg is just a normal black colour, giving the impression that the blaze of the morning has turned it to ashes.
