A day to day blog about Dave and Jill Carroll and their Namibian road trip impressions along their trip through Namibia with the Professors and the Gondwana team.


After a good night’s rest and a hearty breakfast we hit the road into the early African sun, direction Etosha National Park for a full day safari.

We ventured all around the park and the various water holes was popular for animal viewing. We saw Black rhino, Kudu, Lions, Zebra and a very close look at Elephants.

An African trip isn’t official until you’ve had a braai (barbecue) and we did this in Halali under the trees served by Manni Goldbeck himself. Dave and Jill loved it.

A few light clouds in the sky added to the magnificence of the sunset which we enjoyed from the deck overlooking thousands of Mopani trees.
