Along one of the Back Roads
The Lake is approx 140m x 70m and is known to be at least 120 meter in depth. It is classified as being the 12th largest underwater cave in the world.
Just before the surrender of the Kaiser's Forces to the Union of South Africa troops on 9 July 1915, a group of Schutztruppe having been driven further and further north with no chance of being re-supplied with arms or ammunition arrived at Otjikoto. It was here that they decided to dump the heavier of their remaining equipment into the lake rather than allow it to fall into enemy hands. Text Source
