Namibia trip – day02-04 (Zeerust to Etosha)

Screen Shot 2013-04-30 at 10.19.19 AM

After all the outcries for photos, I decided to make this quick post. I still need to add photos from Charmain so please bear with me.

Day two was pretty uneventful except for the fact that I nearly lost the trailers keys. After an hour or so of frantic searching I found it locked inside the trailer on top of the fridge. Fortunately I had one extra key that fitted the locks for the fridge area.

Going through the border posts were a breeze and we were grateful for no long queues.

It was a long stretch through Botswana and actually pretty boring. We did stop from time to time to stretch legs and take  a pic or two.

We slept at Buitepos at a place called East Gate lodge. Clean and a welcome oasis after a long day on the road.

We left for the Waterberg Plateau the next morning and picked up our meat in Gobabis. Made a brief visit to Windhoek but escaped the hustle and bustle as soon as we could.

Our first night of camping at the Waterberg was stunning. It was a real pity we only had one night there but we had bigger plans.

Eventually we were on our way to Halali camp in Etosha.

Just a warning!!! If you dont want to see pictures of animals you will have to skip a few days posts 😉

The vastness and rugged beauty I will mention a few times more but with our entry we were transferred into a new type of paradise.

Our first evening at the waterhole at Halali we were entertained by some ellies and a black Rhino.
