The story behind the image
On our way towards the Etosha National Park we stayed at the Otjibamba Lodge, situated about 4 kilometers south of Otjiwarongo, off B1. An 800 m gravel road leads from the highway to the main building.
The lodge is surrounded by its private game ranch of 220 ha that can be explored either by foot on marked walking trails or with your own car. Depending on your speed, it should take between 1 and 2 hours for the big track. You will find several Namibian game species such as giraffe, zebra, oryx, and others. In any case, it is a good and safe introduction to your stay at the Etosha National Park.
Here, a group of four springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) cross the dirt track of the game drive. We were excited to see them. Little did we know how exciting Etosha would actually be!
