Desert Elephant

This painting is missing.

Back in 2004, I had a fantastic visit to Namibia with the RGS and we were tremendously privileged to watch these animals browse, moving on without decimating their food source and surviving in incredibly arid conditions, in the Huab ephemeral river valley. They then crossed the open desert for pastures new.

Subsequently the BBC has been out there and got some footage of them in the act, but then it was a rare site.
