IT was just as someone once told me, the best trips are always the unplanned ones, and with that I wish to share with all willing to read it how a unplanned last minute trip turned out to be, one that toke me once again into the wild earth of Africa reminding me how blessed I am to life in a world that has raw power in its soil, and a thousand songs in the wind. My visit toke me to a wild life reserve Etosha some say that the heart of Namibia is Windhoek, but they might be mistaken for I believe it to be there, among the elephants and lions that’s where true life In Namibia lies.
Traveling over the dirt road with still the scent of fresh rain hanging in the air, the world was green and alive next to the path, upon arrival at the wild live gats it didn’t take long for the African bush to enchant you, and even sooner than that we saw them, the gentle giants, one after another young male elephant’s grazed one the fresh green graze, the sure size of them demanded respect for the mammal as he walked throw the trees picking up his meals, the wrinkled trunk tugging at small bushes and his front foot scuffling to free the roots of his snack. Kept doing into the part we saw two more young males grazing and wondering around before reaching a waterhole, the sight was astonishing to say the least. A large heard was enjoying the water hole with youngsters, the mothers very protective looked straight at the car daring against her small offspring watching with a protective eye, other members of the heard found the water to be the best place to cool down, one of the younger members of the heard decided to lay down in the water and play it was a sight to remember.
The white fort came into few showing the historical forefront of the wild park, one can’t help but remember how many years have passed throw the walls of the fort, and what stories the walls could tell. Moving into the rooms it was luxury making you feel like you can climb in bed and never get out, elegantly done in with white several urban African pictures on the wall, with a perfect privet outdoor shower if that is what you would like to use to experience Africa’s night life under cool water.
The night life never disappoints, as a family of ferrets where the first to run around the grass and greet you, asking for a treat, after spending the day buy a pool under the heat of African sun, enjoying the songs of different birds in the wind it was time for dinner inside the historical fort, among all the small shops filled with gifts for every person, dinner went smoothly with that the night ended with a jackal calling in the distance a good remainder of just how wild beauty can be...
