Of course not talking about a couple of pints down your local...

 

Do share with us your favourite waterhole photos, when and where taken, and tell us a bit about the experience.

 

Thanks, Matt.

Is that someone spewing after eating my cooking? ;)

A searingly hot afternoon in October 2014 sat in the shade with friends and a cool-box extravagantly stocked with icy Windhoek lager overlooking Long Pool, Mana.

Not quite, fortunately.

@Peter Connan - well remember reading that classic report and it came as a shock to me to realise that was over four years ago now!

I immediately thought of Little Makalolo, in Hwange...  We had a wonderful safari in Hwange last year, but the experience we remember most is spending an afternoon in the log-pile hide right in front of camp -

And a couple of fun vids of the kiddies enjoying the water -

Okaukeujo in Etosha, Namibia

Good idea because ever so often people ask about a place where they can just sit and watch.

@michael-ibk, if you have a moment, throw that swimming cheetah at Hwange up here.

 

Another Etosha waterhole.  Namutoni.  I do think Etosha could be considered waterhole capital of the world.  For this Namutoni waterhole you have to drive to but Okaukeujo you can just walk out of your cottage and watch.  Same for Halali, a walk from your room to the waterhole,  but the walk is longer at Halali.

 

For anyone wanting to just sit and watch, Etosha is a great place.  And less expensive than some other places with waterholes.
