The Etosha Pan is a most unusual
place. It's like the end of the world when you look out over it. The
Etosha Pan National Park is very large. A very harsh landscape, especially
at this time of year when they need rain so badly. It was very hot, dry,
and very, very windy the day we went to some watering holes in the park--with
dust blowing everywhere.
But the watering holes were literally
teeming with wildlife.
Gemsbok and Springbok
Zebra and Kudu too
One young zebra had a very unusual
coat--all the black hair was long except on his back legs--it's not mud, but
The zebra had come in from the left in a
seemingly endless line and after they had their drink, they got in line again
and trudged back the way they had come. They walked slowly with their
heads down which was just how the weather made us feel too. The ground is
so rocky, they may have just been watching where they walked--very inhospitable
area except for the waterhole.
