As I said we have seen some pretty darm impressive game in Africa thus far, but we knew we were at Etosha out of season and the game would be very spread out. We still saw A male Lion and two Lionesses digging into a Gemsbok right on the side of the road, Kudu, one Elephant, Zebra, Giraffe and Hyeana. So not bad at all. The game you see at this time of the year is not bad but far and few between each sighting.

We stayed at Namutoni, Halali and Okaukeojo for one night each and then moved on to the Western side of the park where Bruce (Mike’s brother) treated us to two nights at The Dolomite camp.

If you are ever up this way, this camp is a must. It is located on the top of a huge Dolomite hill that overlooks the park. They have a waterhole just at the base of the hill which is great for an evening game drive. The infinity pool looks right over the park as well and you get spoilt on meals like Eland fillets, Gemsbok T-bone, Sole, Pork chops and so much more.

The rooms are done really nicely and are situated right at the top of the hill (You get in some serious thigh building exercise) and you can see loads of game while you sit on your balcony and relax.

What a wonderful treat this was. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We met a Portugues family from Angola at the pool on our second afternoon and had many a laugh over Gin and tonics and White wine. Meeting people along the way makes your stay very enjoyable indeed.

Thanks Bruce 🙂
