In our last blog we described how our group split, and we take up again on the next day …
As planned our large group split into two groups again today and those who went out on the bay to photograph Pelicans and other sea birds before, today visited the desert in search of the unique and diverse wildlife to be found there and those who visited the desert yesterday were excited about the bay trip.
It looked like, and turned out to be a lovely sunny day when we set out early in the morning. Out on the bay, the Pelicans were as friendly as ever, and we all shot up a storm with dozens of the birds looking fabulous in that early morning light. The Pelicans and other seabirds flew around us, and visited the boat, probably hoping to encounter another fishing vessel. But they were not at all dismayed to see only cameras pointing eagerly at them. We had tremendous fun photographing them.
Meanwhile those in the desert had an equally amazing day, tracking down the creatures that thrive in that harsh environment.
After these incredible experiences it was time to move on – destination Halali in the Etosha Game Reserve.
Our journey northward went smoothly and we arrived at Halali Rest Camp in time for dinner and our first night, with everyone looking forward to our days here …
