Desert Horses of Aus

The Namib Desert Horse is a rare feral horse found in the Namib Desert of Namibia, Africa.

The horses eventually congregated in the Garub Plains, near Aus, Namibia, the location of a man-made water source.

I was Lucky enough to see these incredible horses on my trip to Namibia and managed to get some footage as you can see below.
