On my recent trip to Namibia, I went on a 5 day excursion with Ondjamba Safaris to track the desert elephants in the Hoanib Riverbed of northwest Namibia.
These majestic creatures have learned to adapt to these harsh desert conditions, creating a life in this riverbed that provides their sustenance.
Dieter Risser, the founder of Ondjamba Safaris and known locally as "The Elephant Whisperer," has been tracking these desert elephants for over twenty years. He knows how to study their tracks, their movements, their habits and their behaviors, giving you an experience like none other as you get up close and personal with these beautiful animals.
You will be camping three days of the trip in the Namibian desert, with excellent meals prepared by Dieter himself, a warm crackling campfire and comfortable camping arrangements.
Learn these elephants by name, and enjoy seeing other animals like oryx, Namibia's National animal, and the kingly desert lion.
