PART 2 – from Waterberg into the Etosha National Park
|Farewell to Waterberg: Sunrise over the plateau - the memorial and a last dip in the pool.|

That's why this worldwide network is so important for the maintenance and - as far as possible - even the improvement of the genetic reservoir. Unfortunately, today, we on our way havened had time for neither one. Not for the "Otjiwarongo Crocodile Farm" nor the "Cheetah Conservation Centre". We want to continue towards Etosha.
In Outjo we stock up on "Braaivleis" - that means the meat for barbecue, and the drinks for tonight. Finally we reached Andersson Gate, the southern access to the Etosha National Park.

And really: there was so much to see that we already ran out of time on the first day in the national park ... - but see for yourself ... and that's just a very, very small section.

Later in the evening - when it was already dark we went to the Halali waterhole. A peculiarity, by the way. It is below a small hill from which you have a really good overview. However, you need good eyes and above all good hearing, because the surrounding bush is quite dense.
But you know anyway how it works like and what's to do... !!!
In this blog, we not only describe the tour
itself and what we experienced. We also want to report on aspects of nature
conservation, the history of the creation of the national parks and current
events in connection with it. The present geology of the respective landscapes
and their geological history also play an important role.
Klar – wir können in diesem Rahmen nicht alles ausführlich behandeln.
Sure - we cannot deal detailed with everything in this context. Therefore my request: Write in the comment column, your personal questions, which topics you are particularly interested in and what we should write more about.
also dedicated two pages to these topics on our website - namely:
- nature conservation and hunting .... >>>
- .... as well as nature conservation and tourism ... >>>
