Tackling Namibia in the 2020 Land Rover Defender

It’s the classic Land Rover image. A big bull elephant foraging for food in a sandy riverbed in Africa, Land Rover Defender not far away, its driver and passenger observing through binoculars and long camera lenses. We watched as it munched on the vegetation, nourished by the recent rain. Namibia is the driest country in southern Africa, but this was the wet season. Other parts of that long and meandering river system were flush with water, as we were later to discover. Then the elephant turned, trumpeted a warning, waited till we moved on, then disappeared into the bush beyond.
