From Windhoek we team up with an Israeli couple, H and A, and head north to Etosha National Park, Namibia's big safari hotspot. Way back before my journey down Africa started I promised myself that there would be no expensive safaris along the way as they would rapidly leech the life out of my bank balance. However, Etosha is irresistibly cheap; the combination of five people in the car actually making this far from a financial splurge. In two days I spend $75 on everything - car hire, fuel, park entry, camping and food. Bargain! Also, as the only one registered to the car, H does all the driving. Bigger bargain!
Now, I could easily be tempted into many a tautological paroxysm of adverbs about just how unfathomably, fabulously, fantastically, magnificently, magically, monumentally, insanely, impossibly, incredibly awesome it is to have the largest living land mammal standing within five metres of you casually chewing on thorny bushes whilst being so close that you can count every minute wrinkle on its saggy skinned rump. But I know all anybody wants from a blog about a safari is lots of pretty pictures. So here's a bumper edition for you. Just don't
expect me to come up with names for them all! Enjoy.
