My first encounter with an elephant in the wild happened in Damaraland, in Namibia’s northwest. Just before sunset, we drove out to look for a herd of desert adapted elephants moving through the area. We turned a corner and there they were, grazing on the shrubs and trees. I was in awe. To see my first elephant in the wild—no chains, no pens, no fences—was a magical moment. For more information, check out Desert Elephants of Namibia.
