Heading for Botswana

Kwesting for Koris with a Kar full of Kargo...

After two nights on Tandala Ridge, eating Kudu, Warthog, Red Hertebeast, and watching the animals come to the water hole, we are back on the road, heading back to Windhoek, then on to Botswana. Three bakkes fully loaded, heading down the road, under the bright blue sky.

4 millimeters of rain last night, followed our sojourn to the waterhole in search of the elusive black rhinos. We had our trusted guide, Tim Osborne, and his trusty side kick Laurel with him. Armed with his wits and a radio collar spotting scope we hunted the rhino - not for meat - but for a look. When Tim stated that the Rhino was 200 years away from Oom Vim, our trusty bakke, Derek stepped out to take some photos, while Tim stepped out to find the Rhino. Within a minute, we heard the Rhino crashing throught the brush, headed away from us. The very brave Laura Williams, went into the Bush, a bit, with Tim, in search of a sighting... But all they were able to find was the sounds of a satisfied Rhino crunching his food between his teeth.

We celebrated Shawna's 44 birthday yesterday. Quite a day... Quite a day. Spotted 40 Eland around the waterhole below our dinning room, and watched for a while.

Now, to get groceries, then on to the road!

Onward,
Derek
