Photo Safari at the Okaukuejo Waterhole, Etosha

Located just outside of the Okaukuejo Camp here in Etosha National Park, Namibia, lies the famous Okaukuejo waterhole. This waterhole attracts many wildlife photographers and filmmakers that take advantage of this fantastic gathering of multiple species. This among other waterholes here in Etosha, is one of the few places in the world that holds large gatherings of many different animals. If you are a wildlife photography enthusiast, this waterhole provides you with photographs that show zebra, elephant, giraffe, springbok, gemsbok, and much more in one frame.

The images shown below were taken in the heat of the day, just before we sat down for lunch. This sighting was not even rare, as we often see this on a daily occurrence here in Etosha.
