 17.-18.03.14 Serra Cafema, sun-downer drive, flight

In the evening had a sun-downer drive together to the top of a small hill overlooking the river and the sunset really did prove to be breathtaking. I hope I have really captured it with all my photographic equipment, with the light an colours changing from minute to minute. I was even offered a bottle of champagne which I had originally declined on arriving at the lodge after the long journey.

The following morning there was no time for any activity since the drive alone to the airstrip takes an hour. Then I had 2 1/2 hr. flying time with 2 intermediate stops before arriving in Ongava. The American family was with me as far as Desert Rhino camp, after which I was joined by a couple from Yorkshire. At one of the stops a small horned viper was spotted under the wheel of a small plane – not the one I was taking.
