|Namibia home <- Hobatere <- Bush Walk -> Hobatere Hide|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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".|
