One of the advantages of living on the “platteland” (countryside) is that one doesn’t have to drive particularly far to get into the bush. I might not be the biggest fan of my hometown, but Otjiwarongo has this one big advantage. Waterberg National Park is no more than 90 minutes away while Etosha National Park is about 3 hours away. We are surrounded with private guest farms and lodges and with a little bit of effort, one can make a quick break from the madness of daily routines.
On the 30th December 2013, this is exactly what Henrico and I decided to do. We’ve been to Waterberg countless time, but for a quick breakaway, there were few places as good as this.
