Olifantsbad

Nature parks everywhere have a tendency to name roads, trails, viewpoints and other features after the animals that occur in the area. Against better judgement you always kinda expect to see the animal at such a place but of course these animals do not take much account of these signs and may even may show up anywhere except there. Impalas always are everywhere but turn into Impala Loop and no such antelope shows itself at all. Gemsbokvlakte, a waterhole in Etosha had dozens of Abdim's Storks and over a hundred of Zebra but despite the near endless view all around there was not a single Gemsbok in sight. We therefore we had low expectations when we approached Olifantsbad....but then....

Dune 45 Sossusvlei

Dune 45 is a star dune in the Sossusvlei area of the Namib Desert in Namibia. Its name comes from the fact that it is at the 45th kilometre of the road that connects the Sesriem gate and Sossusvlei. Standing over 80 m, it is composed of 5-million-year-old sand that is detritus accumulated by the Orange River from the Kalahari Desert and then blown here

Deadvlei - Sossuvlei, Namibia

Trying to describe what Dead Vlei looks like in words is no easy task. As this picture suggests, this is a surreal place, a bizarrely beautiful landscape that makes you feel like you’re strolling on Mars rather than planet Earth !
The camel thorn trees have been dead a long time. They are actually believed to be around 900 years old, scorched nearly black from the intense Namibian sun.
It may look like a dried-up ghost town, but this place is actually alive and well…you just gotta look closely and you’ll see traces of the little critters that call this land home.

Country: Namibia
Investigation name or abstract title: Surveillance system evaluation for malaria in elimination phase, Oshana region, Namibia, 2017.
Photo description: This picture was taken on the January 08, 2018 at Windhoek the capital city of Namibia. In this picture is me (Standing) explaining to an elderly man (Seated and paying attention to my explanation) on how to use water purification tablet (AQUA tablet) during response to an Hepatitis-E outbreak at Havana Informal Settlement, Windhoek, Namibia. The water purification tablet were donated by UNICEF as a response to an outbreak, since Hepatitis-E virus is transmitted via faecal-oral route principally via contaminated water. UNICEF donated water purification tablet which I and other FELTP fellows and alumni, distributed to affected communities of Havana and Goreangab informal settlement respectively. We educated community on safe hand wash with safe water before handling food, boiling water from unsafe source before consumption and proper disposal system of human feces.

Investigation name or abstract title: Surveillance system evaluation for malaria in elimination phase, Oshana region, Namibia, 2017.
Photo description:This picture was taken in September 20, 2017 at Adolf village, Oshana Region, a region in Northern Namibia. This is an Image of me (in light blue shirt) performing a Blood-sugar level test to a male client (in a blue T-shirt), during a Community screening for Non-Communicable Diseases (NDCs). Seated around are other Community members queuing up for screening. Individuals with elevated Blood sugar level were referred to the nearest health facilities for Doctor’s review. During the campaign, community members were given health education on modifiable risk factors of NCDs such as, avoid harmful use of alcohol, avoid Tobacco use, advised to be physical active and to eat balance and healthy diet (avoid excessive use of sugar and salt).The screening exercise was made possible by the Oshana Regional Health Directorate.




Big Daddy at Dead Vlei

Big Daddy is the tallest dune in the Sossusvlei area and at 325 metres it dwarfs the other dunes. However it is not the highest in the Namib desert. This honour is given to Dune 7, which has been measured at 388m.
Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia
A fascinating place to explore but highly recommended in Winter as the temperature didn't exceed 35 degrees C

Spike-heeled Lark

It was fantastic watching how these little creatures' behaviour and how they've have adapted to desert life and the intense heat. Most of the times we wouldn't see anything but the sand and little gravel pebbles by the side of the road, but we only needed to slow down or stop the car and, almost out of nowhere, living being would show up from every direction. Any shadow cast by a small pebble or minuscule bush would house a bird or some other creature :-). It was curious watching how, instead of fleeing, these tiny Larks in the picture ran towards us, to the point where we couldn't photograph them since they were so close. We had to reverse the car a bit so we could see them :-) and it was amazing watching how they ran after it ... or rather, its shadow :-) we even felt a bit guilty for leaving them without a shadow to cool off.
