We went on an elephant tracking tour with Grootberg lodge. We saw a large herd of elephants that had several calves. However, the purpose of our tour was to take some photos. We incorrectly assumed that desert elephants would be in the desert. These elephants were in bushland, which made a big difference for the photos. Also, because of the terrain, the closest we could get was about 600 metres away. Having had several experiences with elephants with 10 metres, this was disappointing. At that distance and in the bush, I couldn't tell the difference between the desert elephants and 'normal' elephants.
On the positive, the service to book in was great. We didn't stay at the accommodation but it looked beautiful.
