A rhino rubs itself against brand new Namibia2Go cars

27. juin 2019, inke - Gondwana Collection

They were spanking new and had just set off on their first trip through Namibia: the Toyota Fortuner siblings with the number plates N 209776 W and N 209775 W. By chance, the two Namibia2Go rental cars were parked next to each other at a lodge in the Waterberg area - and the respective car renters got the shock of their lives. A grazing white rhino chose “to cuddle” with their rental cars and damaged the bodywork in the process.

Carmine Bee-eaters

Namibia’s Zambezi Region is renowned for its lush vegetation, wildlife, amazing bird species and water abundance due to the mighty Zambezi River, the Kwando and the meandering water channels of the Chobe River. But a very special occurrence tops all of that each year when thousands of feathered migrants turn the skies red to descend on a specific area from August to December to breed.

It also serves to inform local Namibians as well as tourists about how the delicate balance of the river ecosystem affects Carmine Bee-eaters.

A 100x150m galloping horse has been set in stone on the plains of Klein-Aus Vista Lodge in south-western Namibia in honour of Namibia’s century-old population of wild horses whose future hangs in the balance. The Wild Horse is the third ‘earth drawing’ or ‘geoglyph’ that siblings Anni Snyman and PC Janse van Rensburg have created with their group of volunteers as part of the Site Specific Collective, a land art project that brings nature and art together in large scale.
