Conservation Safari new

Safari Overview
Conservation is ingrained in Namibia and this safari gives you the chance to spot some of Namibia’s most characteristic wildlife and witness the country’s innovative conservation measures first hand.
Namibia became a leader in conservation and was the first African country to incorporate protection of the environment into its constitution. Through the creation of communal conservancies, rural communities are given the opportunity to manage their natural resources sustainably and to benefit from wildlife. This is now considered as a complimentary land use method in conjunction with agriculture and livestock herding.
As a result, poaching has become less and less socially acceptable, as conservancy members are committed to protecting and sustaining wildlife for their tourism value. Namibia’s conservancy movement and other conservation efforts, such as eco-tourism, have restored populations of lions, cheetahs, black rhinos, zebras and other native wildlife of the world’s richest dry land.
There are many types of conservation categories including wildlife conservation, soil conservation and habitat conservation, amongst others.
Wildlife conservation in Namibia is one of our most important priorities, as we love the flora and fauna that our ecosystem can support.
If you go anywhere in Namibia, you’re likely to find that some part of the experience involves wildlife conservation in one way shape or form as 42% of the land is dedicated to wildlife conservation initiatives under private or public ownership.The Nature Travel Namibia team offers you the opportunity to be part of this conservation experience when you join us on our Conservation Safari.
