Quiver tree talk

Not only is Mr. Steenkamp the oldest living fossil at the Mesosaurus Fossil Park on his farm, as he says himself laughingly, but is he a great music performer, playing the unique 'dolomite rock instrument' for his visitors.
This beautiful statue is set up in Keetmanshoop as a reminder of the importance of the karakul sheep industry for Namibia.

Retired karakul sheep farmer and Mesosaurus Fossil expert, Mr. Giel Steenkamp, in recognition of his long-term service of leading tourists to the Mesosaurus Fossils and in recognition of his long-term efforts to ensure the protection of these fossils, was presented with a one penguin-rated Tourism Support 2015 Award.
