Welcome to the Cheetah Kingdom! Namibia not only is home to the largest population of free-roaming cheetahs worldwide but to a fascinating variety of African wildlife. Game and bird species in great numbers, some of them endemic, are encountered in national parks and nature reserves across the country. Conservancies comprising of up to 400 000 hectares of privately owned and communal farmlands as well as many private wildlife sanctuaries also play a key role in preserving this precious natural heritage.

It may therefore not surprise that Namibia successfully rescued the White Rhino from the brink of extinction and thus far mastered the almost impossible task of ensuring the survival of the legendary Desert Elephant. Annual game counts even show steadily rising figures for  some of the game species, like the Kudu, which counts amongst the most sought after hunting trophies.

No wonder also that smaller game including various kinds of antelope are frequently seen along public roads...
