A Gemsbok with its calf on the dunes in the Walvis Bay region. Incorrectly called an Oryx. Oryx is the name of a genus that consists of 4 large species of antelopes. Scimitar oryx, Gemsbok, East African oryx, and the Arabian oryx.

This image was captured on the only guided safari we took on our trip. Our host/guide J.P. Koch the owner of Red Dune Safaris was truly fabulous and got us to some of the exceptional areas in these expansive dunes. When in Namibia you can book a tour here: https://www.reddunesafarisnamibia.com
