We enjoy a final brunch before departing from Okonjima Main Camp to make our way south to Windhoek. The camp staff wave us off. As you may recall from previous blogs, we are on our second coach transport, the first vehicle not coming up to our normal high standards. Our […]
This morning our guests enjoy an educational Bushman Walk with local guides. We're learning about traditional hunting methods and we view bird and animal traps, rope making and fire making. Brunch is served on our return and at afternoon tea Tristan Boehme, AfriCat's team […]
Wake up call is 5.30am. (Whoops, that wasn't advertised in the brochure!). Tea, coffee and freshly baked pastries are served from 6am and by 6.30am we’re aboard our game viewing vehicles and heading for one of the cheetah enclosures.
This morning is our introduction to […]
We left Namutoni this morning and as we headed out of Etosha National Park we are all trying hard to spot the Damara dik-dik, the country’s smallest antelope. Two of our guests catch a fleeting view of one as we drive slowly along the park road. We’ll count that as a […]
Guests enjoyed their morning game drive today. Early risers saw lions, numerous ostrich, giraffe drinking at the waterhole, impala, oryx, blue wildebeest and, naturally, plenty of springbok. The afternoon drive was also productive: elephants with young, hyeana, jackal, […]
