Waterhole at Okaukuejo camp, Etosha National Park, Namibia.

Zebras, elephants, and springboks are among the species most frequently affected by lethal anthrax infections in the Etosha National Park of Namibia. The role of natural and artificial waterholes and their surroundings in the epidemiology of the disease has been a matter of debate for a long time. Modern diagnostic and molecular-epidemiological methods are now used to investigate the spread and distribution of the causative pathogen Bacillus anthracis. See Beyer et al.
