A Nature Walk at Hobatere Lodge, Namibia

'Orlando' Our guide at Hobatere Lodge was known as 'Orlando' because he had played with a football side of that name, and had even played for the Namibian national team.
Rock Hyrax aka Dassie This was one of the only group of Rock Hyraxes (aka Dassies) we saw on the whole trip, and it was a long way away.
Klipspringer droppings When you're on a game walk, you don't see many animals close up, but you do get a chance to see droppings - you can tell animals apart from their droppings: these are Klipspringer - as well as tracks and signs. It's also an opportunity to learn about the plants and to find out what the animals and people do with them.
Mopane seed: the only tree with a brain The national tree of Namibia is the Mopane. It's leaves look like an animal track, and this is its seed, explaining why it's the "only tree with a brain".
