A Memorable Get Together
Mr. Ghosh and I had planned a family get together early this year. As per the plan, we had a great time together with both our family members by sharing our memorable moments and unexpected moments with our family members. To speak about my friend Mr. Ghosh, he is software professional who is totally packed with work just like me. He described about his recent visit to the South Africa. The section which touched my heart and made to stay involved towards him was when he narrated about the day he had spent in the Kalahari Desert. I thought that I can share about that with you all.
Kalahari is an enormous land consisting of red sand dunes, sparse vegetation and dry riverbeds. It’s located on the shoulders of South Africa scattering across Namibia and Botswana. Commercially named Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is one of the best National Parks in Africa.
The Kalahari Gemsbok National Park (South Africa) and Gemsbok National Park (Botswana) have been formed into one Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, wrapping more than 3.6 million hectors of land with three rest camps to lie back in and enjoy the wild game around, in the rugged sanctuary.
On Christmas 2010, four passionate people including Mr. Ghosh commenced their journey to explore this magnificent, breathtaking beauty of nature. A twelve hour drive to the target initially seemed a bit tiring but no one had an iota of regret once we reached our destination.
Lion, Cheetah, Giraffe, Gemsbok, Impala, Agama emerged in a truly wild atmosphere like never before. A couple of dangerous encounters made their trip memorable forever. On one hand, they experienced the beauty of finding ourselves in the idle of roaring lions, cheetahs and on the other hand the complete silence of wild night.
Who knows what all is hidden behind this wild silence? To make these experiences memorable forever, they captured each and every moment with our lenses.
Yes Friends, after hearing about this everyone in our family was totally excited to view the photographs which have been captured in desert. It was awesome and it made us feel as though each and every one of us in the family had experienced the beauty of Kalahari Desert.
