We spent 3 days in Etosha Park. All books say that it is better to visit in the dry season to spot the animals easily. Despite the fact we were in the middle of the rainy season, our safari was splendid.
Getting in the park at 6h30, we were surprised by this black rhinoceros crossing the road just in front of us. I had not yet taken my camera out, so only Gitane has a good shot of it. It's the only picture we have of the rhino. And yes, I swear quite a bit since I lost a chance to take a nice picture of this great animal.
But our safari was not done yet and a few surprises are waiting for us.
Namibia has a greater density of cheetah than countries in East Africa. In return, there are fewer lions and leopards that are the main competitor to the cheetah.
At a water hole, a cheetah was slowly getting closer to us. These oryx have also seen it and surprisingly, it was the oryx that chased the cheetah away. The cheetah is too small for an antelope of this size.
Zebras in Etosha are common zebras, but they are somewhat different with brownish lines between their strips.
Again, what a chance! For a 2nd time in the same day, we stumble upon some black rhinos. It is the mother and its young one.
Cape Ground Squirrels behave a bit like the suricate.
