Day 5 Swakopmund To Etosha Today we have our longest car ride from The breezy seaside town of Swakopmund to the near center of Namibia, Etosha.460 km was the distance we had to cover today but this trip wasn’t miles of miles of speed cameras, roadworks, and travel lodges, this was a road trip of miles upon miles of vast Namibian desert. The desert landscape was amazing, no in-car entertainment was needed, what I was seeing out the windows was good enough for me.The roads we ventured down were long and straight, the stuff road trippers dream of. We had regular stops on our journey including seeing wildlife creations like termite mounds and huge what looked like barrels of hay in a tree which were actually giant birds nests. We also stopped many times for wildlife we saw beside the road including Baboons, Wilder beasts, Impalas, kudus, Warthogs and the best sight of all, Hawks. Because of the recent rain, all the termites had been disturbed, but it would have been smarter for them to stay in their mound. Hundreds of Eagles were flying in the sky feeding on their termite buffet. Visually it was unreal. After our huge trip, we had arrived at our home for 3 nights the Okatala lodge. This place is what we were looking forward too. As we drove up the long driveway we were treated to lots of different animals all part of the lodge's grounds. The biggest shock is when a huge giraffe walks out in front of us forcing us to stop suddenly. It stares at us trying to gauge if we were approachable, he then comes over to our window to give us the warmest welcome we could have possibly received. The whole hotel was visually stunning. Brilliantly maintained with great service. The beauty of this place is the wildlife where ever you look. The best view in the hotel was the restaurant and bar area. Overlooking a watering hole, while you enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner you are treated to the view of the animals watering hole. I can safely say its the first time I have eaten a steak while watching a Rhino have an evening drink.Check back tomorrow where we go visit something truly unique, the Himba Tribe.
