New account of 15-day trip to Namibia for free that we did in August 2016. Here we tell you the last day of free safari in Etosha national park, a day that we take full advantage of.

At six we were already awake but we took it with a little calm. On the way to the exit of Tamboti campsite we meet a damara dik-dik, a very cute little antelope. And at 7:20 we were already at Etosha's door. Unlike Anderson's door, there were almost no cars to enter. From the gate to Namutoni camp there are about 20 minutes.

This was our last day of Etosha safari and we had the illusion of being able to see some Rhino, leopard or Cheetah. In reality, these species are very difficult to see, especially the rhinoceros of which there are hardly any specimens in the park. That day we were going to explore the northern area, but first we stopped to fill the gas tank in Namutoni.

To access the roads and waterholes you don't have to go inside Namutoni, but at the entrance you have to follow the roads to the right or left. We wanted to go to the pond of Tsumcor, in the direction of the King gate Nehale, but by mistake we went to Aroe and we turn all the Fischer's Bread. The landscape was a bit strange, because all the depression was covered with a thin layer of greenish mud. Not even an animal was seen and strangely there were some palm trees. I imagine the point Twee Palms It refers to the two palm trees we saw.

We returned to the main road and took the road in northbound. The landscape was very beautiful, as it was the typical image of savanna with stems of golden grass half a meter high.

Of these four days of safari, the ponds What I liked the most were those of that day. Especially Klein Otevi and Groot Otevi, as they were surrounded by a beautiful nature. There we decided to park the car for a while and see what happened.

We saw many zebras and lots giraffes drinking water. Have I commented that the giraffe is my favorite animal? Well, that day I saw a lot of them.

We continue along the northbound road and stop at the pond of Tsumcor. There were orices, Pumbas and kudus. In addition, a group of vultures that they were shedding the flesh of some bones. We didn't know what animal it was.
