Day 11 – To Etosha

23 Sep

(Imagine a photo of 2 big rhino and a baby rhino at a waterhole. Uploading photos out here takes hours and usually fails right at the end)

Today was only meant to be a staging day, with an easy cruise up to within striking distance of Etosha National Park and a simple hotel room to recharge myself and all my gadgets.

Turns out to be a rather nice lodge with a deck overlooking a waterhole. A dip in the pool, a beer, some drone flying with the owners teenage son who is drone mad and shows off his skills, then dinner of roast eland on the deck watching the rhinos, giraffes, and oryx, and that’s a pretty decent way to achieve position for Etosha.

Tomorrow, into the park for 3 nights, where I hope to:

1) not get stuck in sand

2) see some elephants, lions, and so on.

But first, in my room there’s a complimentary mini bottle of Amarula that requires investigation.

Finally! A photo.
