2016, a year rich in ups and downs. After an expatriation missed in the Middle East, the desire to resume the missions take me back.
It will be the direction of beautiful Namibia!
After a stop in South Africa, here I am on Namibian soil. Mythical and magical country with ocher and red grounds.
The Na'ankuse Sanctuary is nestled in the bush. Their mission is to conserve Namibian land, crops and wildlife. The reserve is a safe haven and a second chance for countless wounded, orphaned or conflicted animals. As far as possible, the goal is to release the animals in the wild. Only animals that are too sick, abused or too used to humans stay in the sanctuary. This is done solely for their safety and their chances of survival, especially vital for big cats. The release of carnivores, both cheetahs and leopards, is a top priority for Na'ankuse - "bringing wildlife back to wildlife" is the mantra that forms the backbone of their projects.
The sanctuary is a home for the smallest meerkats, mongooses and hyrax, as well as the largest carnivores such as lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas. They receive no government funding and rely solely on donations and volunteer time to continue their work.
