We left the hotel for the town to get some money from the ATM and then continued on to Nata through several national forests and reserves.
We were told that the animals are mostly visible very early in the day or very late afternoon which meant we would miss many of them along the way.
We did get to see Giraffe, elephant, and ostrich along the route to Nata. We had lunch in Nata at a nice rest stop, and then continued on to the bird sanctuary rest camp where we would stay the night under the stars.
We put up our tents cooked dinner under the camp fire and went to bed early since we would be up with the morning prayers.
