Veld surveys and game counts were conducted quarterly during 1982 and seasonally during 1983/84 on a typical pro-Namib plain on the eastern boundary of the Skeleton Coast Park. A strong correlation between veld condition and rainfall was evident. The aim of this study was to establish the relationship between fluctuations in veld conditions and the seasonal movements of large herbivores on a typical Namib plain along the eastern boundary of the Skeleton Coast Park.
