In Search of Namibia’s Desert Lions – TOSCO Sponsor Field Trip 23-26 April 2014
Does Dr. Stander ever sleep? We met him after sunset, somewhere in the middle of the Palmwag Concession. We had driven all day, and so had he. But while we set up camp, and prepared our dinner, Dr. Stander made for the next hill, to listen for lions via the radio system. He came to our camp fire for a lively chat and when we went to bed, he went back to the hill to continue listening for the lions. Whereas we bothered about breakfast the next morning and had to break up camp, Dr. Stander drove off in search of the lions – but not before telling us exactly, where we would meet him again.
Researching desert lions in the Namib obviously is a dedication, not a job.
