Quiver trees | Namibia

Quiver tree
The quiver tree (or kokerboom in Afrikaans) is a tall, branching species of aloe, indigenous to parts of Southern Namibia. Bushmen traditionally used its branches to make quivers. A quiver is a container for holding arrows, bolts, or darts.

The Dune Lark is Namibia’s only true endemic bird; their range is entirely within the borders of the country. The Dune Lark‘s preferred habitat consists of sparsely vegetated sand dunes, where it does not drink water but instead feeds solely on seeds or insects.
