From Okaukuejo to Halali Campsite in Etosha National Park
After an exciting first day yesterday we woke up excited to get on the road and start exploring again. We were tired from our late night safari drive and from observing the watering hole when we got back to camp.
We made a quick breakfast and got ready to head out. Devon misplaced our shower stuff so I was a bit cranky with my dirty hair! haha.
It didn’t take long before we started seeing all kinds of animals.
At one point along the way we ended up in the middle of a huge herd of Zebra’s. They were all over the road and weren’t moving. Eventually we had to slowly make our way through them so we could continue on. It was incredible.
A Day Spent Animal Gazing
We spent the rest of the day animal spotting. The pictures speak louder than anything I could say about this experience. Both Devon and I felt so fortunate to be there.
We made our way to Halali and found our campsite. We made a quick lunch and then headed back out before it got too late.
Better Than TV
We eventually made our way back to Halali. We decided to try out the buffet option rather than cooking our own dinner. They were amazing about showing me the vegetarian options and even gave me a discount on the fixed price where I don’t eat meat. Devon on the other hand tried impala and all kinds of different game meat. We were really impressed by the selection of food, it was delicious.
After dinner, we headed to the watering hole. Nothing was going on at first but we decided to wait and see what the night would bring and we were not disappointed! At first, one rhino came out. And then another. And another. And another. By the end of the night, we witnessed FIVE rhinos coming and going. It was one of the highlights of the trip. I was connected to WIFI so I was messaging real time updates to my mom which was hilarious. Not something you expect to have when traveling in remote areas. Two of the rhinos kept acting like they were going to charge each other and then would back off at the last minute. It was honestly the best entertainment. Fascinating.
Does anyone know if these are black or white rhino’s? We couldn’t figure it out. Please let us know if you do!
