Namibia Exploration: Desert Dune Safari

Wildlife - Desert Dune Safari

Desert-adapted wildlife across Namibia is a highlight given the arid and harsh climate and the sparsely vegetated landscapes. Almost miraculously it seems enormous elephant thrive along with giraffe, as well as lion and brown hyaena in areas such as Hoanib, while gemsbok (oryx), springbok, steenbok, scrub hare, and inquisitive ground squirrel can also be seen in the Palmwag Concession. Most importantly Palmwag Concession's freshwater springs support the largest free-roaming black rhino population in Africa as well as healthy populations of Hartmann's mountain zebra, kudu and predators.

Entirely different to the rugged mountains and valleys inland, the Skeleton Coast hosts Cape fur seals in their thousands along with black-backed jackals.
