Etosha National Park, Namibia
June 17, 2015

We've been here in Etosha National Park for only 24 hours or so and can already count multiple sightings of giraffe, rhino, lion, and elephant, plus countless springbok, oryx, kudu, and other varieties of antelope. For me the rhino are the most special and we were treated to a real drama at the watering hole near our campsite last night. Not just a dozen or so different black rhino, including a couple of little ones, but also a sparring match of sorts between a romantically inclined male and a female who wasn't interested in what he had to offer.  He was persistent and actually jabbed her in the rear with his horn at one point, but she held firm and eventually he trotted off dejectedly into the trees. One more night here then we making our way back towards Windhoek.
