For sunset, we climbed up to a deck above some water tanks. That's our truck and "tent." Gharagab was our favorite camp in the park (with Grootkolk a close second). When we pulled into the camp, we got stuck in the sand and didn't know how to get out of it (we engaged 4x4 but were still spinning our tires). Eric, the tourism assistant, finally drove our truck to our tent for us. We felt pretty silly! But, we learned a valuable lesson from the experience--Eric put the truck into a different 4x4 mode that the guy who'd rented us the vehicle had told us to use (he actually said we wouldn't need the other one). Armed with that knowledge, we managed to get our truck unstuck on a sand dune the next morning (there will be a photo of the location soon).
While watching the sunset, one of our neighbors came to join us, and we ended up having gin-and-tonics at the tent she was sharing with her fiance. While there, in the dark, a leopard came to the watering hole! The fiance is a serious (but not professional) photographer and had a 600 mm lens on his Nikon (!) and a SB-800 flash, so he tried to get a photo of the leopard... while you could clearly see it was a leopard in this photo, it was still quite dark. I don't think I have ever seen a leopard outside of a zoo, so it was very cool to see it--really graceful and beautiful. And while I'm on the subject of big cats, the night before we were at Gharagab, a lion or two walked by this tent... they saw the paw prints in the morning!
