Matt & Nat's wheelie big adventure!

Midnight at the oasis

The past 4 days in Etosha have been fantastic. We saw a leopard, a cheetah, about 10 black rhino, elephants, hyena, honey badgers, giraffe, zebra, ostrich, wildebeest, mongoose and antelopes. We also saw our first Ebola warning/info poster.

    So, why are Black Rhinos so very White? And does it matter? I must get out more

      I did wonder if they were actually white rhinos – one of the hazards of being on safari without a guide!

      Hi Isobel. The hyenas were quiet – I think they were scared of the elephants, who were chasing all the other animals away.

    Hi both! We met in Etosha and coincidentally drove in opposite directions near Otavi. We were heading for Windhoek. Lots of warthogs on that road! Best of luck.

      Hi! Great to hear from you. On Sunday that Otavi road was crazy with traffic – so much overtaking & we saw a crash. Today we rode to Grootfontein on a lovely peaceful road. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

      I got to take the photos for once as Matt was driving the car. We’re sorry to have left too, I was enjoying the elephant sounds at night. And cars are so much better than bikes! X

    I saw my first Ebola warnings this week too – in public hospital in France! In English as well as French (v unusual). You’ll be fine if you stick with the 4 legged beasties :)
