Etosha National Park: Okaukuejo

This camp at the western end of the accessible part of Etosha has a waterhole that is well-known for the diversity and sheer numbers of animals that come in to drink at different times of day and night.

Bird life

There were many species of raptors around the waterholes in western Etosha. We were particularly happy to be able to get good photographs of the bateleur eagle. There are very few vultures anywhere in Namibia.
