Garth Owen-Smith, co-director of Namibia's Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation and a long-time Kaokoveld conservator, is highly critical of the collaring.He believes that further study of the elephants of the Hoarusib River/Purros Conservancy - the animals that have been collared - is unnecessary because 'the movements of [these] ele-phants are better known than any other population in Namibia.They are already being monitored by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, local tour guides, conservancy game guards and NGOs.'

We've listened to lions roar, sweated profusely in the nine billion degree sun, counted an infinite amount of springbok, dug around in elephant poop, peed behind the Land Rover, climbed mountains, gazed at endangered black rhinos, met Garth Owen-Smith, been dehydrated, been ill, watched sunsets, stared at stars, cooked weird food,laughed hysterically together and so much more.

Garth Owen-Smith, founder of IRDNC and an important conservationist in Namibia came to check in on how we faired the lion visit. Garth invited us to accompany him to game-drive out to the spring near camp. We quietly (which was hard from all the excitement) climbed a small hill that overlooked the spring at a safe distance. Once at the top we had a clear viewing of the green spring and the lions that were quickly retreating back to their den. Distracting us from the lions was a horned-adder snake that was sharing the lookout with us, they however are only semi-venomous. It was quite an amazing morning. Garth shared many amazing stories and experiences not only about lions but conservation as well.
