Feb 9, 10, 2016 ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Two nights in Etosha Village was a treat. The temperature reached close to 40 degrees Celsius so just typing made me sweat. It didn’t cool off much at night either. Around about 3 am I could put my feet in the sleeping bag otherwise, I just melted on top.
The next couple of days in the park were wonderful. We saw lots of lions, giraffes, zebras, etc in the mornings. Our lunch break was spent at campgrounds in the park. We’d get off the truck, jump in the pool, go eat lunch and jump back in the pool. Back at camp we enjoyed some magnificent thunderstorms.
The late afternoon storm cleared the air and made sleeping much more pleasant. I woke up at one point hearing lions roar and hyenas screaming. We discussed it at breakfast and Manda said they must have made a kill nearby as we all heard the commotion. It was nice to enjoy a cooked breakfast and several cups of coffee as we didn’t have to leave till 8 am.
