We stopped at Katete and ended up at the Tiko community center. This place is owned by a German lady together with the locals from the village. You can eat, sleep and buy local products here and all the proceedings go to the local community. We decided to camp here which means you can pitch your tent in the village.
We were astonished by how gorgeous the Itezhi Tezhi lake was. We followed the beautiful lake view drive to get to our campsite. Because we couldn’t stay at the campsite we stayed at the lodge Konkamoya which was wonderful! After two days we went further north to Kasabushi and were treated with some amazing wildlife!
We decided to head to Kafue National Park. We knew that we were going for a ‘road less travelled’. We had to take the ‘cordon road’. We drove all day. It soon became clear that we would never make it to the campsite that night. We started looking for a place to pitch our tent and ended up at the airstrip with Steven.
The big thing in Livingstone are the Victoria Falls though. The falls are located at the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia. Since it only stopped raining a couple of weeks ago there is a tremendous amount of water in the Zambezi river that leads to the falls. It also happened to be full moon that night.
We headed towards the Southern entrance gate of Chobe National Park to stay in Savuti Camp. This turned out to be quite a challenge but we made it. During our morning drive we saw the Savuti lion again. After two days in Savuti we headed to Khwai North Gate where we had our first flat tire. Read out full story..
We couldn’t leave the Okavango and moved a couple of kilometers to Nunda River Lodge. Our campsite was even closer to the water than the night before. We literally pitched our tent two meters from the water! The hippos passed our tent at about five meters. The next day a ‘water monitor’ visited us. How cool is that!
After our luxurious trip to Etosha a couple of weeks ago we went back to basics this time: sleeping in a rooftop tent in the largest game park in Namibia. We slept in Olifantsrus and Okaukuejo. The wildlife, Etosha pan and the nature in general are stunning in Etosha but the accommodation…
The last destination we visited together with my parents was Etosha National Park. The highlight and the most central point of the park is the Etosha Pan. This huge salt pan is only occasionally flooded due to the rain and the nearby rivers. We were so lucky to experience amazing sightings…
The lagoon is probably the best part of Walvis Bay. After a short stroll we arrived at this beautiful spot. We were welcomed by dozens of flamingos! The next day we went to Cape Cross. We were surprised by the number Cape Fur Seals and how close you could get to them.
