Erindi, a family safari
Erindi is not an alternative to Etosha. It is a game reserve that is smaller and much newer than Etosha, but it has its charms. The facilities are spotless, comparable to any 5-star lodge and have an attention to detail to make your stay perfect. There are complete buffets at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and afternoon coffees and teas with homemade pastries. Guided tours of the park (with an open-car safari) are at 6:30 am and 4:30 pm. Both last 3 hours and the drivers strive to find the animals and have interesting details of flora and fauna. Before returning you stop at a small stop along the way and enjoy a small breakfast in the morning and a few croutons in the afternoon amid the stunning scenery of the nature reserve.
