Luckily there was only three of us (plus the guide and his son), so we had a bit of space in the 4x4. For the next two days we traveled through the National Park. Itīs famous for its weird coloured lakes which are filled with flamingos.
I spent two days chasing flamingos around to get a good photo, as they either walk or fly away when they see you.
They were also other animals such as foxes and llama and vicunas (see photos) that lived in the area.
We also stopped at some geysers, which were at 4800m altitude, so there wasnīt much running around happening.
The whole two days were over rough travels, across sand or desert, but luckily we got a good driver and 4x4, even though running repairs were constantly required. Lots of other groups broke down during there tour, and unfortunately the AA doesn't cover this area, so a quick rescue isnīt always an option.
After two days in the National Park we reached the edge of Salar de Uyuni, which is in the next post.
