Namibia 3 week self-drive - Desert Elephants, Desert Lions, Himba, Etosha

Recommended Posts

So, that's all for the report of last year...! Our third trip was planned for next month, but that's not going to happen, as it seems. If you like to see more trip reports, check out my report of an almost 4 week self-drive safari to Namibia and Botswana.

 

 

I'm going to post a few videos from the riverbeds, here's a first one. I'm not sure about the video quality here, maybe on Youtube it's better...

 

This is in the Huab riverbed. We had been following this herd for a few hours already and it was increasingly obvious that they accepted our presence, at closer and closer range. It was still not easy for me to simply not drive away and keep a distance... This time I decided to not drive away. We were on the side of the riverbed and not direct in the middle of their path. We always had our engine off when not driving. And as you notice, at this occasion I even stopped taking photos, and not make any noise or movement anymore. You don't want to experience this anyway through your camera view-finder...!!! When you respect them, they'll respect you. More videos to come!

@BRACQUENE go for it! And it's a perfect combination to do both, and indeed add the Victoria Falls :)

@Bush dog I'd wish Toyota would agree, I would be happy to test one of their newer models in return for some photos :)
