Namibian Air Force
We left Ngepi camp to travel to Etosha National Park. The park is 22,000 square miles dominated by a large salt pan about 70 by 30 miles in size which fills with water during the rainy season but is dry the rest of the year. the park is home to a wide variety of animals and birds which congregate around the water holes in the dry season. There are several camps near water holes and we camped at two of them. Several places along the road there were locals selling wood carvings like these planes. Cars and other vehicles were also a common subject. One gentleman even had carved and built an almost life size VW Bug complete with wooden keys.
