The natural law concerning food and water supply dictates the movement and cycles of life in this arid area.
As such there is no guarantee of seeing any of the animals that inhabit Damaraland and whatever you may see is to be a treasured moment.
The rare and endangered desert elephant have adapted like all the other animals here to exist on limited fodder and scant water.
These rare pachyderms roam around the more vegetated areas by dry riverbeds and stand on their back feet and stretch their trunks skywards trying to reach the very last leaf on each tree.
Desert-adapted black rhino range in and out of communal farming areas across a large area and are one of the few populations to survive on land that has no formal conservation status.
Classified as critically endangered by the IUCN, the black rhinos of north-west Namibia have more than doubled in number since 1985.
Even lion and cheetah move in and out of the area when antelopes such as oryx, kudu and springbok are around.
