While were there, a group of photographic enthusiasts were doing a safari with ...

    ... good time on Namibia's excellent road structure. We spent the second night at a lovely lodge, Thankadu Bush Camp, just outside Ghanzi. Excellent food, and a very comfortable chalet for the night, although they do have cheaper tents to hire and a camp site.

    Day 19 was another day filled with game watching and relaxing. Apart from the normal elephants etc, we came across a lioness crossing the road. Another interesting sight was a Tawny Eagle eating what appeared to be a Black Mamba that he had caught. The snake was at least two and a half ...
