We recently took a long weekend trip with our new friends Silje and Neil to Etosha National Park, just a 3 hour drive from Cheetah Conservation Fund. Both the wildlife and landscape were phenomenal. We’ll let the photos speak for themselves – there are a lot of them this time. 🙂 Needless to say, we had a fantastic time and look forward to more Namibian adventures.

Diversity in a stark landscape – springbok, ostrich, hyena, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra…………………………
We hope this tells a bit of how incredible African wildlife is, and how worth protecting each of these species is.
