Desert Elephant (Loxodonta africana)

Damaraland, Namibia

The landscapes of Damaraland are incredibly beautiful, and when you encounter a group of desert elephants in the soft hues of sunrise, it takes your breath away.

This group was so pleasant, friendly and harmonious, even with two very young calves.
This group regularly visit wells to quench their thirst, and the previous morning I witnessed how they all gathered around the nearby village and its well. The calves barely reached to the water by standing on their hind legs and stretching their trunks to the limit to get to the water.

The people of the village were all watching on a safe distance to keep the elephants feeling safe. This group visits here several times a week, yet the villagers were still not jaded by their presence, but rejoiced in their beauty, grace and peace.
