A day in Damaraland

A full day of Safari is what we have in store for us today, as we have booked a full day trip in Damaraland. That means spending the day carrying cameras scanning the scenery for animals from an open vehicle.

This time, it did have a roof, which was rather convenient as the sun is relentless around here. The main goal was to find the elephant and rhinos living in this desert, but we failed spectacularly at that. We did find loads of Oryx, Hartmans Mountain Zebra, Springbok, Kudu and Giraffes, so it was a good day after all.

We spent the rest of the afternoon arranging for our tire to be swapped, which can only be done in Outjo. That is 120km on gravel road + 150km on a tarred road; otherwise known as a long trip. More on that tomorrow!
