Species Specific Safaris

_MG_5965.jpg
Our species specific safaris focus on the conservation and observation of a specific animal species, giving you a behind the scenes look into the work of conservationists as well as seeing these animals in their natural habitat.

CHEETAH SAFARI:
Cheetahs can run 110 kilometres (68 miles) per hour, yet they can’t run away from habitat loss, a reduced gene pool, and conflicts with humans and their livestock. Namibia is home to the world’s largest remaining cheetah population, with 90% of its cheetahs living on livestock farmlands where conflict with humans is the greatest threat. These speedy cats are listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, with less than 10 000 individual animals left in the wild.
On this safari we will visit:
• Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF)
• Naankuse
• Etosha National Park.

RHINO SAFARI
Namibia holds almost a third of Africa’s Black Rhinoceros population, with a stronghold for the South Western subspecies of these fascinating animals. With the ever-present threat of rhino poaching, the future of the Black Rhino in Namibia will depend largely on its ability to protect this very important population.
On this safari we will visit
• Naankuse
• Palmwag
• Etosha National Park.

ELEPHANT SAFARI
The Elephant is the world’s largest land mammal. All the Elephants found in Namibia are African Elephants which live in small families of between 10 and 20 animals. The Desert Adapted Elephants, although not a recognised subspecies, have shown remarkable resilience in surviving the harsh and unforgiving Namib desert.
On this safari we will visit
• Kaokoland
• Damaraland (Desert Adapted Elephants)
• Etosha National Park.

Wild Dog Safari:
The African Wild Dog is the fifth most endangered mammal in Africa, and the second most endangered predator on the continent. Namibia has had a consistently critically low population of these enigmatic painted dogs and current estimates put their numbers anywhere between 300 and 600. With numbers so dangerously low it has been declared endangered and conservation efforts have been increased to try and save these amazing hunters.
On this safari we will visit
• Naankuse
• Mangetti
• Caprivi Area
