A great pool provided a break from the late-afternoon heat spikes. The double rooms were streets ahead of those at Okaukuejo and Dennis took us on a superb 5:30 a.m. drive to see the animals.
We hit the jackpot with a great siting of a black rhino, ambling along and browsing its way through its breakfast. And if that wasn’t enough, a few kilometers from our return to camp, 3 spotted hyena decided to pass us on the road. They were literally feet away from the car, looking cute as bears but we know they are ferocious by nature.
The camp is well positioned for self-drives in your vehicle. Our travels provided quite vivid views of lion, wildebeest, giraffe and loads of bird life. One must however, be patient with the traffic, as evidenced by this congestion in front of our truck:
Halali Rest Camp, Etosha National Park.
