Africat & the Etosha National Park Namibia
Etosha National Park is a national park in the Kunene Region of northwestern Namibia.
Etosha was first established in 1907, when Namibia was a German colony known as South West Africa. In that time it was the largest game reserve in the world. Due to political changes since its original establishment, the park is now slightly less than a quarter of its original area, but still remains a very large and significant area in which wildlife is protected. AfriCat was founded in 1991 on Okonjima Farm in Central Namibia whose mission was to contribute to the long term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores. The consequent contact with numerous farmers and AfriCat’s exposure led to the rescue of many trapped large carnivores. Since 1993, 1080 of these predators were rescued. Over 85% were released back into the wild.
