37 Magnums Ice Creams please

Added 06 May 2013

We left Namutoni this morning and as we headed out of Etosha National Park we are all trying hard to spot the Damara dik-dik, the country’s smallest antelope. Two of our guests catch a fleeting view of one as we drive slowly along the park road. We’ll count that as a success, even though we don’t have photographic evidence.

On route south we make a couple of comfort stops. At one, Richard purchases 37 Magnum Ice Creams – which excites the shop keeper no end! Our clients seem quite pleased too!

Lunch is at Otjiwarongo, a busy town on the main road south to Windhoek. We’re phoned ahead and the Carstensen Bakery and Café has kindly reserved tables for us. Sandwiches, tea, coffee and tasty cakes are served.

Back on the road, we’re about an hour from our destination, Okonjima. Home of the AfriCat Foundation, we know Okonjima will be one of the highlight of the tour. We’re greeted by the friendly staff and soon enjoying more tea and cakes before retiring to settle into our accommodations. Dinner is served in the main lapa and around half of our guests visit the nocturnal hide. We’ll let you know tomorrow whether they see any action!
