The perils of rain
Namibia between 12 May 2018 and 27 May 2018
Highlight was the cheetah kill. Etosha fulfilled my expectations and more.
No one could foresee the torrential rain and subsequent flooding which lead us to being advised to travel the longer route to Doro Nawas which made it feel like an unnecessary out of the way stop. Given a good run up the skeleton coast this view would not be as jaded.
All the accommodation was good and the extra night at erongo was well worth it
Would recommend this trip to others"

"The Olive Grove a luxurious start to the trip"
BullsPort Lodge & Farm
"Friendly family orientated farm stay"
However, to put the low wildlife densities in context - the Naukluft Mountains have been gripped by drought for the last 5 years. As a result Bullsport has been forced to sell almost all of its livestock to protect what little vegetation is left and give the resident wildlife the best chance of survival but despite this, animal numbers have declined. This said, the landscapes remain stunning, and we’ve always through of the walking and hosting as the main draws here. So it’s best to view any wildlife as a nice bonus.
