One of the unexpected highlights of my trip to Namibia occurred at the Etosha National Park on one of our last days. Toni, our guide, had mentioned seeing the elephants at Halali, but we’d had such an amazing morning, I hadn’t given it much thought.
She parked the vehicle, handed us our lunches and told us to follow the path. We ended up at a covered overlook above the watering hole. There were about 20 people there, several with professional looking cameras with long lenses. It was a large space, so there was plenty of room for everyone.
Toni leaned over and pointed at the trees. I saw the top of an elephant and looked back at her with a smile.
I turned back around and there they were. More and more elephants came from the distance toward the water. It was incredible.
I loved every moment of the Elephants’ Pool Party. My face hurt when it was over, I was smiling so much.
Thanks for such an amazing experience, Toni.
This is a must see when you visit Namibia. Who knows? I may just see you there.
