Damaraland

March 6, 2014  —  Namibia

Damaraland is another region of Namibia with a semi-desert climate. The landscapes are magnificent and there are nevertheless some animals well adapted to this dry area.

Among the local fauna, the most impressive is the elephant. Normally, it needs to drink water every day. These desert-adapted elephants are capable of living a few days without water. An amazing adaptation.

Here is the Damaraland in pictures.
