“The early morning and evening light on the sand dunes and tree skeletons in Sossusvlei and the Kulala Wilderness Reserve provided some of the most dramatic views and photos from our trip to Namibia.
At Hoanib Skeleton Coast, our guide, Abner, mentioned that the desert elephants had discovered the water pipes to the camp and much preferred drinking from them rather than the waterholes. The maintenance crews had an ongoing contest with the elephants over this.
One morning, we had a highly entertaining encounter with the elephant herd moving down the main riverbed and then up into the side valleys near the camp. Several elephants discovered a buried water pipe, dug it up, and tried to break it, although they eventually failed and gave up.”
