After that, all went smoothly and I arrived at the Flamingo Lodge just before lunch, which I considered excellent timing. After lunch I wandered through the desert. The landscape is desolate, but very impressive. The desert is mostly rocky, but it is a very soft sandstone full of fossils. It appears that a muddy bottom with lots of shells in it was pushed up not too long ago. The fossils seem so young that I am not sure they actually deserve the name fossil.
The next morning I travelled further into the desert and saw some jackals and a springbok. In the afternoon I visited a canyon. Very impressiove and somewhat scary. Those sheer cliffs are made of the same soft crumbly sandstone as the stuff i saw the day before.
On the last day I went fishing for a few huors and I even caught a cod-like fish (the South Africans call it kob) of about three kilos. The freezer of the lodge was already full and I did not fancy fish for dinner, so we released the little beast.
