I have three minutes to write about my first game drive!
Lucky Anna and I got the truckâ€™s front seats today. Seeing animals for the first time in the wild is like what Iâ€™d imagine seeing dinosaurs would be like: you see them so many times on TV and magazines, and finally, theyâ€™re right infront of you, and you canâ€™t believe it. Watching giraffes grazing just outside our truck window was really magical. I have heaps of great photos â€“ Iâ€™ll be really upset if I lose them all!
A few of us sat around the waterhole at night â€˜til late, watching the animals come down to drink.
The best part of our stay here was seeing a bull elephant come right up to the fence. I canâ€™t explain how exciting this moment was. He was right infront of me â€“ a wild, bull elephant! He was so close that I have photographs of his eyes.
Etosha was hot but not as dry as Sossusvlei.
This trip is so cool, Iâ€™m really not ready to come home. Luckily I have four weeks to go still!
