Elephants on the way to the watering place
In the Bwabwata National Park in north-east of Namibia live about 8000 elephants. They are smaller than their conspecifics in the Namib Desert, but they are impressive by their number alone. Elephants do not only eat very much (up to 300 kg a day), they also have plenty of thirst. Elephants need 100 - 150 liters of water a day. In the dry season the elephants can drink only at the river or at few water holes. Therefore large herds are regularly to be found there. Please visit me at www.holgersbilderwelt.de.
