Complementing the magnificence of a red sand sea,Namib Desert Lodgelies at the foot of ancient fossilised dunes
Intermittent interruptions may occur - hey, it's in a remote destination in the world's oldest desert after all.
There is another Waterhole close to this one. If the waterlevel is low, animals could still drink at the other waterhole
Wildlife in the open landscapes of the Namib tend to be quite skittish, especially when drinking at a man-made waterhole. Naturally animals are vulnerable to predation when they are at a waterhole. This particular waterhole is in an open plain (8km from the lodge) where predators like leopard and hyena roam, so animals are vary when they go for a drink, especially when they are alone. The wind also tends to make animals more nervous.
The pole that the camera is mounted on has been at the waterhole for years so animals have gotten used to it. The camera does not make a sound or flash so does not disturb the animals.
