I think it's gonna be a perfect camping day

The trees and animals
And clear blue skies
A waterfall comes tumbling right before my eyes

Birds that fly

Red sands. we had a leopard walking through the camp during the night



Sesriem. A jackal stole our cutlery during the night.

      Hey that looks like the campsite I stayed in at Sessriem... got very drunk in a bar (well, shack) with some local guys who all worked at a resort hotel a couple of miles away. One of them had his mobile phone plugged into a couple of speakers to provide music and we drank lots of very bad red wine from a weird collection of classes and jars. Great night.

      proper wild camping...! it is amazing how you can feel safe sleeping in the middle of the bush, with leopards strolling past, when all that is between you and the wilderness is a couple of layers of rip stop nylon...
