Postcard from Namibia


Okaukuejo Waterhole, Etosha National Park, Namibia.

Dear Past Me,

You’ve made it back to Africa. Finally. And just like the last time, words will escape you because it’s just so bloody amazing. This is Etosha; David Attenborough filmed here, recording black rhinos talking to each other in the dark. It was fascinating TV viewing. Later on, you’ll hear it yourself and what a moment that will be. If that’s not incredible enough, they will turn up later for their turn to drink – three of them, no wait, four? Five? It’s hard to tell. A mum and her baby; two males facing off, more calling in the dark. All the while the ele stamps his feet and rumbles in discontent because he wants to leave but these pesky rhinos are in his way. Enjoy this night, it’s a nearly perfect travel memory, I just thought I’d let you know I still think about it often.

Lots of love,

Present Me
