DAMARA ELEPHANT
Super User

Damaraland with its dramatic landforms tortured volcanic history, free-ranging big game, and huge ephemeral river systems is a true wilderness of great magesty.

While the desert-adapted elephants may be accustomed to arid conditions and to walking vast distances to find water, this is also what makes them difficult to find. They could be almost anywhere on this great swathe of desertscape. Just two groups of true desert-dwelling elephants live in Namibia, one the Hoarusib-Hoanib group and the other the Huab-Ugab, each living between the rivers after which they are named. Together they total only about 180 animals, so finding any of them is very special.
