Termite mounds look very strange but they are evident everywhere

Our guide Dudu and Shaddy our cook try to fix our truck...

A leopard turtle is spotted crossing the road.

Extraordinary superb bed and linens at this 5 star made this nights rest great. It just wasn't long enough. The air con helped keep us cool and comfy all night long. Ahhhhhh!

At 6am the group met for breakfast at the restaurant. Nice change from breakfast at the truck. On the way out of the park we managed one last game drive. Quite a few animals again but nothing we hadn't seen before. For excitement we experienced a little truck trouble along the road. All of us got out and stood in the ditch while Shaddy and Dudu tried to fix the problem. As we are calmly standing in the hot sun one of us notices that there is an elephant just down from us in the ditch. Being without a vehicle we really hoped that he didn't decide to come our way. Suddenly seeing an elephant was kind of scary. Hurry boys!

Today's drive headed south to Windhoek the capital of Namibia via Outjo and Otjiwarongo and on to Okahandja where a roadside market was set up for anyone wanting to stop for souvenirs. Windhoek became the capital of Namibia in 1990 after a long struggle. Many of our group had fun buying but not us.

Once in Windhoek we checked into the Windhoek Town Lodge, did some laundry and walked to the closest mall and to find some internet but was unsuccessful. Windhoek is just another big city although we didn't get much time to explore it. We ate at Joe's Beer House for a very disappointing dinner. It took two hours to get our food and it was barely warm!
