Set off after lunch (with all my clothes on) but was determined that I would seize the moment as some time. Not a huge amount of traffic on the road - all 4x4 vehicles full of tourists as inside a National Park now. Was looking for a suitable spot to stop and shed my clothes when saw signs for roadworks so as not sure if anyone would be working there or not I decided to wait - glad I did ...

We arrived at Sesriem camp just before sunset and enjoyed our first braii around the camp fire. This time we pitched our tents as we would be here for a couple of days.
