A small troop was seen in the wilderness area of the Ugab River valley. Most of the year there is utterly no flow in the mainstem. Access to this roadless region is only by small planes capable of landing on the desert floor, since there are no airstrips within 100 miles.
I photographed this Nile crocodile at a range of seven metres from my canoe on the Kunene River. He was ostensibly waiting to prey on primates who come to the river to drink.
This young cheetah was observed on a playtree, a (usually dead) fallen tree that is used for scent marking and scratching. Note the prime habitat of thorn scrub, that exhibits considerable open characteristics, ideal for cheetahs to hunt.
Several Brown Bears were seen in the wild at moderate altitude in this part of the Carpathian Mountain forests.
This large bird was seen foraging in an expansive desert grassland.
