About this book

The Kaokoveld, one of the world's most forbidding wastes, is host to an assortment of animals that have found ways of surviving in this hostile environment. Here giraffes go entirely without water, and rhinos climb towering mountains in search of that scarce resource.

Most unforgettable of all must be the elephants of the Namib. Witnessing these giants cross bare sand dunes is a once-in-a-lifetime sight, and Prof. Fritz Eloff writes evocatively of their habits and environment.

Giants of the Desert is a fascinating introduction to this harsh world and its denizens, vividly brought to life in both images and words.
