South Africa, Namibia border – Orange River
The river forms the border with South Africa. You can spend the afternoon canoeing on the river.
Namibia – Cape Cross Seal Colony
Namibian Atlantic Coast. This is where the first European explorers landed in the 15th century. It is now more famous for the seal breeding colony. It might not smell great, but the sight of so many Cape Fur Seals is quite impressive. The scene varies from season to season. Certain times males are fighting for mates. Pupping season brings not only adorable seal pups but ravenous jackal taking advantage of the weak newborns or, as they see them, easy meals. Cape Fur Seals are really a type of sea lion only found along the coast of Southern Africa.
Namibia – Etosha Pan National Park
Namibia’s Etosha pan is a large salt pan, forming part of the Kalahari Basin.T he dry lakebed is 120-kilometers long (75-miles). During the day we drive through the park in the truck to various waterholes where animals may congregate. We may see elephants, rhino, lion, leopard, springbok, oryx, kudu, mongoose, and even the elusive giraffe and zebra. In the evening, walk from the campsite to the illuminated waterhole, it’s very busy with animals coming to drink especially in the dry season.
