Namibia is a land of great contrasts and Damaraland demonstrates this with stark plains, petrified forests and ancient valleys leading to rocky outcrops and the soaring peaks of the Brandberg Massive Mountains. The animals that inhabit Damaraland are difficult to see. The rare and endangered desert elephant have adapted like all the other animals here to exist on limited fodder and scant water. These rare pachyderms roam around the more vegetated areas by dry riverbeds and stand on their back feet stretching their trunks skywards trying to reach the very last leaf on each tree. Desert-adapted black rhino range in and out of communal farming areas across a large area and are one of the few populations to survive on land that has no formal conservation status
