Bushmen omelette

Added 09 May 2012

A slightly later start this morning. We're given an extra hour in bed before we head out on an educational San Bushman Walk with local guides. We learn about traditional hunting methods and see bird and animal traps, rope making and fire making, to discover how the San people adapt and survive in this unforgiving wilderness environment. It's obviously of great interest to our guests as they're later back than scheduled for brunch. And at brunch many enjoy a Bushman's Omelette which is basically the whole selection of cooked breakfast wrapped up in an omelette on one plate. No risk of going hungry for sure. After a siesta during which Richard contacts Windhoek Airport to prebook seating for our flights tomorrow, we're back on the Okonjima game viewing vehicles for an exciting afternoon hearing about the work of AfriCat. We visit the AfriCat clinic and offices, and a nearby enclosure to see more cheetahs close up. And we're not disappointed. Late afternoon we head for a remote spot for a final sundowner. Bubbly is served. The bottle corks fly into the air and when we tidy up we try to retrieve them. One is missing so we all form a line and as the light begins to fade we do our best to recover the last cork. Was it found? Who knows?
