    After two years of severe drought, a good strong rain was very welcome in the Huab river valley today. When I was there in October, many animals were very very stressed with the drought. With any luck the land and wildlife will recover now that some moisture has returned. This is a picture of the river valley today, when last week all was sand and dust. Yay! 78495330_153875735964524_6077506026670653440_o.jpg

    I am cheering on all the local people, and all the plants and animals. Survival, and prosperity begins with rain, and regenerates with growth, Best wishes for a full recovery.

    We are getting reports of rain all over Namibia. Some places are still missing out. Praying for all of Namibia to get rain!

    Very glad to read this report, maybe this is just the beginning for them to have a normal wet season and a productive growing season. I keep tabs on the weather over there, as Namibia is on my list of places to hunt.

    Awesome news for Namibia and the wildlife. This was sent to me Nov. 20th. Not sure when it was taken.

    That Kudu looks sick. You have to feel sorry for animals in that kind of condition. Doubt that the rains can come soon enough to save him.....
