Onlookers

They are at home at the Flying Lodge, but they belong to the pedestrians. A year ago, Lodge Manager Rodrik van Neel raised four small ostriches in Bitterwasser. The now fully grown large birds stop by the lodge every now and then.

The main attraction is the water hole right next to the Palm House. They strut along the fence without hesitation and can be observed up close. They can then also be seen on the website. A webcam looks out over the waterhole.
Springboks appear there again and again. Among them is probably Bocky, whom Rodrik also raised last year. Bockey had helped raise the baby ostriches and played the minder.

A normal Namibia flying day

Yesterday (15.11.) it was already clear at the briefing that we could fly four digits today. And that's what 23 crews did, in Bitterwasser 9, and they flew distances over 1000 km.
