The first hunter-gatherers lived in Namibia nearly 2,400 years ago and created rock carvings. It is now time to buckle up, because you are embarking on an off-road safari adventure. The Damaraland desert elephants can be found along a bumpy, dry riverbed. Elephants living in the region are specially adapted to survive the harsh climate of the region and still roam freely.

In addition, you might also encounter giraffes, oryx, mountain zebras, and ostriches.
