Within the boundaries of Etosha Nationalpark in Northern Namibia there are three campsites. The biggest of them beeing "Okaukuejo", located at a big waterhole with the same name. I spent the first night of my recent visit last November sitting at the waterhole, watching different animals drink and interact. But not only the animals but also the scenery of the waterhole itself, changing colors during the sunset was amazing. That's when I took this picture of an elephant and a giraffe drinking right next to each other at the waterhole.

I took this picture with my old camera on January 1st, 2008 near Mummelsee in the Black Forest where I lived before I moved to the Caribbean. The quality is not the best because I had no professional camera at this time but I am sure some people here will love that shot anyways and I wanted to share it before it get lost. If anybody want the original, please let me know.
I took this picture of the beautiful Victoria Falls on my recent visit in November 2009. The photo is taken from the Devil's cataract in direction of the Main Falls. The water at that time of the year is at it's lowest compared to the rest of the year. However the green vegetation around, the many thousands of litres of water storming down into the valley and the sound of twittering birds around you makes this a location worth visiting any time of the year.
