a game reserve
in northern Namibia,
is considered
one of the best,
if not THE best,
reserve in Africa.
It is a very dry area,
as you can see.

Some, expecting to
see more game
in a reserve
with plentiful rain
and green vegetation,
will be surprised.
Here the wide open spaces,
with few trees or bushes
give you a clear view
to the horizon.
You may see giraffes
20 Km away and
plan your route to meet them
further down one of the roads.

And almost all animals
have to brave the dangers
of the waterhole to drink.
They concentrate
in vast numbers,
keeping a wary eye for predators
and maybe curiously
looking at you
as you sit in your car
a few metres away.
