Where is Namibia?

Namibia is in South West Africa, bordering on South Africa, Botswana, Angola and Zambia. There is a diverse range of animals native to Namibia, including elephants, rhinos, leopards, lions, hippos and cheetahs.

The climate ranges from desert to subtropical, and rainfall is scarce, limited mainly to the higher altitude areas inland. During the summer from December-April (which is also the wet season), several ephemeral rivers spring to life and form a central part of the ecosystem and are especially important to the desert adapted elephants.

Most of the work that EHRA does is concentrated in the North West region of Namibia, known as Damaraland. This is one of the areas of Namibia that is seeing an increase of wild Elephants returning to habitats that they have not lived in for hundreds of years.
