The largest threats to a cheetah, wild dog, lion and leopard population is habitat loss. AfriCat Foundation provides a habitat for all these large carnivores to hone their hunting skills in a 20,000ha nature reserve, Okonjima. They learn how to become self-sustaining, which gives them the opportunity to return to their natural habitat.
The AfriCat Foundation and Okonjima’s mission is to make a significant contribution to conservation through education. We will continue to strive towards the long term survival of Namibia’s predators in their natural habitat. We aim to achieve this by working with commercial farmers, local communities, communal conservancies, any stakeholders, and the youth of Namibia.
AfriCat supports environmental education at all ages and levels of education, rehabilitation programmes, provides solutions to human-wildlife conflict issues and conducts constructive wildlife research. Tourism funds and supports the majority of AfriCat’s Education and conservation work.
