This is Okakauejo waterhole adjacent to our lodge in Etosha park. Unlike most other waterholes that you can see only from a car, this one you can watch sitting on benches within the lodge, like in a theater. It was a theater of sorts. A silent kabuki theater.

p.s. Thank you for the ribbon! Submitting photos from Africa does feel a little like cheating. It is way too easy to take awesome photos in Africa. The hard part is to get there and back (the way back took about 36 hours door to door)
