A Few Birds of Namibia

Variations on a Theme

Over 600 species of birds are found in Namibia. I am not a good bird photographer, but I did manage to capture a few of the birds commonly found in various sections of the country.

Zebra – Variations on a Theme

Harem of Burchell’s zebra, or plains zebra, grazing in Etosha National Park, Namibia. Burchell’s zebra are distinguished by light brown stripes running inside the lines of their black and white striped pattern.  Plains zebra prefer open grasslands and watering holes and often mix with other species. Burchell’s zebra are highly social, forming harems with a single stallion, several mares, and their foals. Harems may form large herds. The plains zebra is the most common of three zebra species, and it is the most geographically widespread.

Fun fact: male giraffes have more male on male sex than male on female sex. They could be banned or worse in many states and countries.

The Road Taken

The Desert Adapted Elephants Of Namibia

Desert Adapted Elephants, Nambia

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.
