We enjoyed a Wimpy double thick milkshake in the town of Tsumeb, Southern Africa make the best milkshakes! We then went to the supermarket to stock up on the supplies we would be needing in the park. Charcoal, Meat and general provisions for BBQing.
Inside the fort is a restaurant, you can also go up onto the ramparts and look down on the floodlit waterhole.
We went to our accommodation, and got a surprise, we were expecting basic Parks Board Accommodation. Usually this consists of a small hut, with a BBQ area and basic cooking utensils. But the 'huts' had been renovated. Firstly, you can no longer drive up to your accommodation, but you have to park in a communal area, then walk to your hut. This is the walkway. Inside the accommodation was far from basic, very modern and very nice, with A/C. The bathroom was also lovely. The huts were no longer self catering, all utensils had been removed, as had the outside BBQ areas, this is a photo of our outdoor area.That evening we went over to the adjacent camping site to cook (BBQ) our dinner. We were not alone, three other family's who were staying in the huts were doing the same thing! The camping area was very nice. Each pitch had an electric light and the ablution blocks were a good standard. Jackals were a problem, one nearly got my steak of my plate! That evening the campers got very little sleep as a lions roared just by the perimeter fence, we did not hear a thing in out hut.
This elephant was heading to the pan.
The flood lit watering hole was the attraction at this camp, you did not need to go out into the park to look for animals, they came to you!
