We had an hour at Palmwag Lodge before setting off for Etosha and so I made the most of it by taking some bird photos. I was especially pleased to see the Rosy-faced Lovebirds.
African Red-eyed Bulbul
The journey to Etosha was stunning especially as our guide and driver were brilliant at spotting wildlife and stopping frequently for us.
The age of individual plants is difficult to assess, but many plants may be over 1000 years old. Some individuals may be more than 2000 years old. Because Welwitschia only produces a single pair of foliage leaves, the plant was thought by some to be neotenic, consisting essentially of a “giant seedling.”
