This remote part of northwest Namibia is renowned as the home of one of Africa's few populations of desert-adapted elephants, as well as a desert-dwelling form of black rhino that some authorities regard to be a distinct race. The area isn't formally protected, but the elephants and rhinos can be tracked at one of a handful of vast private concessions leased by the local Damara people to private tour operators. Wildlife aside, it's a stunningly remote and desolate area, and well-worth a couple of night's visit. About 200 mi/320 km northwest of Windhoek.
