As it is one of the few sights in the Grootfontein area you might want to take that detour, but don’t expect too much. We found the entrance fee overpriced.

We turned of the main road just before Grootfontein, on an excellent gravel road to the meteorite. It was well worth the visit. The area is well maintained and signposted. The meteorite is 50 ton, and looks really amazing. There were also lots of visitors...More

We stopped to see the Hoba Meteorite on our way to Etosha. It was relocated from its original place of entry. It was a good place to stop and walk around on our long drive to Etosha.

Well this is the biggest iron meteorite on earth ... but it is after all just a big rock. So if you are in Grootfontein, go and have a look. But it's not worth a detour.
