Abandoned oil rig in the Naminian desert


Toscanini, Namibia (NA)
This is an abandoned oil drilling rig that was operational in the late '60s and early 70's. At the centre is the main power unit, a V16 Caterpillar engine. Erected by hopeful entrepreneurs long before the National Park was actualyl proclaimed. Today, it provides a perfect nesting area for birds during the breeding season.
