And from the Kaokoland area of the Kunene region the tour turns towards the gateway of northern Namibia and Ovamboland - Etosha National Park, Namibia's foremost wildlife sanctuary and our home for the next three nights. This impressive park is also home to a wide variety of animals - lion, elephant, leopard, giraffe, cheetah, hyena, springbok, two kinds of zebra, eland and many more. The avian residents of the park make up an eclectic mix of some 340 species that range from hundreds of thousands of flamingos during the rainy season to a colourful mix of raptors, rollers, vultures and babblers. From the smallest wetland species to the heaviest flying bird - Etosha is a nature lovers dream.
From Etosha we head to the small village of Grashoek for one night, our destination - the Living Museum of the Ju/Hoansi, an authentic open-air museum highlighting traditional Ju/Hoansi-San (Bushmen) culture before travelling to Okonjima, halfway between Etosha and Windhoek. The Cheetah Conservation Farm at Okonjima is dedicated to the protection and long term conservation of all large carnivores in Namibia and our day here is a fitting tribute bringing our adventure to a close before heading out of the bush and back to Windhoek.
