Desert Adapted Elephants
When we arrived at Mowani Mountain Camp we went for an afternoon safari to look for the elusive desert elephants. We drove on dirt roads, in sandy gullies, over rocks and after an hour and a half of tracking, we found a herd of 10 - 12 animals of all ages. They were content feeding on desert shrubs and trees and did not seem too concerned with our presence. These animals move great distances most days when food and water are scarce. They looked very healthy to us. It was also special to see our first ever Hartman's Mountain Zebra, a very endangered species and found only in the mountains of Namibia.
