The last of Namibia.!

Ok, trying to keep this short. Just outside of Walvis Bay (where we there is a large population of greater and lesser Flamingos residing on the foreshore), is the ‘Moonlandscape’ named after the unusual hills of the area, and the Welwitchia plants.

ETOSHA GAME PARK: Dry, arid, & stark around the salt pans, you wouldn’t expect to find ANYTHING survive here,… but you find wildlife wandering the pans in search of who knows what.
