We entered Namibia via the Caprivi Strip, hopping along the Okavango river. Some cooler days before we would enter the smothering heat of the west. We stayed two nights in Etosha National Park and we got our little present we have been hoping for: a cheetah! The first day in the park was definitely one … More Holy shit
To spice up the boring, flat tar road we took on some sand, salt and grass. Botswana threw some animals encounters in the mix too!
