Namibia has been one of those countries where we arrived with few expectations and left with more wonderful memories than we even thought possible. Our reason for traveling to this destination was to climb the famous Dune 45 and see the trees at the Deadvlei clay pan, but one particular watering hole at Etosha National Park in northern Namibia had us raving for the rest of the journey.
Why is that?
Well, if we didn't know any better it would be easy to think that the 60 minute show we witnessed was a choreographed production for our eyes only. Just about every major animal from the park made its appearance at the watering hole in turn, and halfway through vanished for no visible reason. Something was coming, and a large elephant appeared in the distance as it made its way to the watering hole.
The animals slowly returned, and all coexisted in wonderful harmony around one gorgeous spot.
