Wildlife Park and Desert Excursion

Right after Christmas we went to visit Park W, a wildlife reserve shared by three countries. Although we saw a few animals, most of "the biggies" (e.g. elephants) had disappeared with the horde of tourists that showed up for the holidays. We were happy some friends joined us at the last minute.

After a brief stay at home to unpack and re-pack, we headed north to the desert. The views were amazingly diverse and quite spectacular. Between the dust in some places that reminded us of snow blizzards, and the low temperatures each morning, we almost forgot we were in tropical Africa! Beth got to ride a camel for the first time.
