The Desert Adapted Elephants Of Namibia

Desert Adapted Elephants, Namibia

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.
