|- location||Kaukausus source|
Kaukausib-River in German called Kaukausib-Mulde is a Rivier within the Diamond Restricted Area also called Sperrgebiet in the south of Namibia. The Kaukausib-Rivier extends through the Namib from south to north-north-west. At the upper end of the Kaukausib Rivier there is a spring, which carries water throughout the whole year and is a drinking trough for various animals, especially for Oryx and Ostrich. The Kaukausib-spring is located 62 km southeast of Lüderitz and 40 km east of the Atlantic coast on 375 m above sea level (1235 ft). The picture on the right shows some Oryx at the source. A dozen Ostriches move away from the well in direction of the left lower corner of the picture.
... und bald darauf war die Wasserstelle Kaukausib erfüllt von Lärm und Staub, von Gestampf und Ochsengebrüll.— Meno Holst, Lüderitz erkämpft Südwest S.118 (1941)
In English it means:
