Climate and Landscape
March was a lovely cloudy month at Doro Nawas; the humidity was quite high but at least this brought the rain – and some drops actually fell. The camp measured 2 mm one afternoon, even though it felt like a lot more rain.
The elephants were regulars on nature drives; the Rosie Family group had been away for eight months but they’ve returned to the river beds, all the way from the Brandberg Mountain. Baby Valentine was a delight to see, protectively watched over by his mother.
Hartmann’s zebra were seen in great numbers. Red hartebeest have also been seen in herds of up to 25 individuals.
The rain encouraged some other species to come out of hiding, including a parabuthus scorpion.
