We left The Waterberg and enjoyed a very pleasant trip to Namutoni. Check in went well and we were excited to be back in Etosha National Park. We had thoroughly enjoyed our trip in July 2015 and were very much looking forward to this our first caravan trip to the park.
Once we were set up we had some lunch, a rest and then set out at just after 4 pm. Etosha is made of saline desert, woodlands and savanna grasslands.
The salt pans in the park are mostly devoid of vegetation with the exception of a protein-rich grass that is used by wildebeest, zebra, oryx and springbok among other grazers.
Although our first drive was a short one we saw a number of interesting birds and animals.
We were on our way back to camp when this fellow appeared and crossed the road.
We followed him for 15 minutes – there was only one other car to share the experience with.
Each camp in Etosha has a waterhole that you can visit any time of day or night. Before dinner we popped over to Namutoni’s Hide to watch the sun set. We did not braai tonight, but instead cooked chicken and vegetables in the Remoska Pot. It was an awesome end to a delightful day.
