Etosha National Park

23 Aug

 Fort Namutoni once home to the German Police Post and during WW1 the place to hold English prisoners, is now a restaurant, bar and curio shop for visitors to the Park.


 Day 6 East of the Park to Halali

Prior to entering the park, I met Andrew, an Aussie, making his way around Southern Africa in a VW supported by Hoopers Dealership in Durban. We spent two days traveling through the park, which was great as we could get off the beaten track with two vehicles. It is not recommended for one vehicle to stray off the main routes.

 The Pan with water in it at the moment

 Some animals seen on route

   

  

 

 This guy is eating a thorn bush

 One I particularly loved were the Giraffe’s in the background walking toward the setting sun

  

Regardless of animals seen, the landscapes and drives are beautiful

   

Up close with the Elephant’s

  

There is a spit that is built out on the Pan, which makes a fantastic Sunset viewpoint

 

 Back at camp, Halali in the center of the park, the guests gather at waterhole to watch as the Rhino come in for a drink

 

Distance: 248km with in the park

    I thoroughly enjoyed the finishing touches on the blog. I smiled when I saw Merv’s camp food! Great job. I feel like I have been to Africa.
