Celebrate Namibia’s big cat conservation work in Otjiwarongo and Okonjima. Set in the central north near the Waterberg Mountains, Otjiwarongo is home to the Cheetah Conservation Fund, which rescues and rehabilitates these elegant endangered cats. Just 50 miles away, you’ll find a healthy population of leopards and brown hyenas in the 22,000-hectare Okonjima Nature Reserve. If you’re lucky, you may even spot the scaly-tailed, endangered pangolin on a safari through the plains and lush riverine forests of the Okonjima Valley.
Come to Otjiwarongo for ranger-led jeep tours to observe the shy, speedy cheetahs and visit the education centre and model farm, where you can learn about the foundation’s livestock guard dog programme, which aims to reduce conflict between farmers and cheetahs in the wild.
Meanwhile, Okonjima is home to the AfriCat Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to ensure the survival of African predators in their natural habitat through research, education and rehabilitation. Take a guided safari to track radio-collared leopards and visit the carnivore information centre to learn about their vital work.
