    We appeal to the discerning traveler who wants to make his or her ecological footprint count by taking part in one of the most successful community conservation initiatives in Africa.<br /><br />We offer the best of both worlds – a top class safari into a remote, spectacular part of north-west Namibia where you will be welcomed as guests, not merely tourists, by the community owners of the company. The experience is authentic, intimate and exclusive. Our skilled back-up team ensures there are no compromises on eco-safari standards, safety or luxury. <br /><br />The main stakeholders are the Himba and Herero semi-nomadic pastoralists who live in the conservancies. We believe in the vision of making your footprint count.<br /><br />Our team is highly experienced and includes local conservancy guides, who will provide a fascinating insight into life out there. Between us we will ensure that your experience is awesome in this place of wild beauty and breathtaking contrasts.

  2. Hi Matt and thanks for your interest. 2000N$ per day goes to the Desert Lion Conservation project and all the benefits (profit surplus) go to the people who coexist with the lions (namibian conservancy system who actually are the shareholders of the safari operator). The participating conservancies are Puros, Orupembe, Sanitatas, Okonjombo and Marienfluss, covering more than 13 500 square kms. When KCS grows and accumulates wealth, it is the conservancies, not outsiders, who are the beneficiaries. A registered trust structure ensures that maximum income goes to the conservancies. Our business model builds on Namibia’s community-based natural resource management successes, linking conservation to economic and social development. For wildlife and the environment to be protected meaningful benefits have to be generated for the people and local capacity has to be built.
  3. Dr Philip Stander has been working with carnivores for 27 years and has dedicated the last 12 years to the conservation of desert lions. These unique predators - there are only 100 to 130 in a 55 000 square kilometre area - live in the harshest of conditions in the Kunene Region. To survive in this extreme environment they need to cover vast distances. This inevitably brings them into contact with the people who live in this arid area. Desert Lion Conservation is trying to find real solutions for the human/lion conflicts that arise when man and beast share the same area and resources. Join us on an unforgettable reality experience as we accompany Dr Stander on his daily mission to learn more about these magnificent creatures and to provide them with a future. Our movements depend entirely on the lions, possible local problems and Dr. Stander. This could take the form of searching remote and rugged areas for the secretive and elusive lion, or perhaps investigating a human/predator conflict situation. These cautious survivors of the desert are nocturnal and so we will fall in with their routine. These are not the semi-tame cats frequently encountered in national parks; they are awesome, shy and lords of their environment. To be able to see them and work with Dr Stander is indeed a privilege!
