Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

We provide volunteers with the rare and exciting opportunity to work closely with and actively participate in the conservation of African wildlife. The sanctuary serves as a space of safety for orphaned and injured animals that include farmyard animals, baboons, caracals, wild dogs, cheetahs, leopards, and lions.

Our Wildlife Conservation Volunteers provide an important resource in caring for and feeding the animals on a daily basis, as well as helping to maintain and develop the sanctuary. Your volunteer experience will be spent helping with projects, going on counting game excursions, and feeding animals.

N/a'an ku sê plays a vital role in rescuing and releasing threatened carnivores in Namibia to help reduce human-wildlife conflict. We own and work with several research and release sites across Namibia; Neuras, the NCCC at Solitaire, NamibRand, as well as our wildlife sanctuary just outside of Windhoek where you will be volunteering.

They rescue and relocate animals that come to us through human-wildlife conflicts and mitigate reducing the numbers of which are needlessly shot or killed. We fit each large carnivore with a radio tracking collar and are able to track the movements of every animal we release in order to study its behaviour.

N/a'an ku sê helps to reduce the conflicts between wildlife and humans by helping and then releasing Namibian cats. Since 2008, they have rescued and safely re-released over 80 cheetah, leopard and brown hyena. They re-locate carnivores to safe conservation areas in the south of Namibia (including Neuras) and fit each cat with a tracking collar so that we can monitor their welfare.


Highlights include:

- Feeding and caring for the animals on the farm
- Big Cat conservation work
- Project work
- Education of local schoolchildren
- Animal time


No special skills or qualifications are required - just a minimum age of 18 and a willingness to get involved with all activities.
