AfriCat wins the coveted 'Best Wildlife Organisation' award from the Good Safari Guide
The AfriCat Foundation has beaten some serious competition to win the award for Africa's 'Best Wildlife Organisation'. A panel of independent travel professionals recognised the critical work of AfriCat and placed them ahead of conservation heavyweights such as the Endangered Wildlife Trust, the Jane Goodall Institute and the South Luangwa Conservation Society. Naturally Namibia is extremely proud to have Okonjima and AfriCat representing the cutting edge of Namibian predator conservation and hope you will have the opportunity to witness their remarkable work for yourself.

The Etendeka Experience
Etendeka Mountain Camp has quietly been introducing travellers to the highlights of Damaraland for twenty years. Though not quite as established as the ancient Welwitschia trees in the area, that is an impressive heritage considering owner/guide Dennis Liebenberg has been there for the duration. It is truly representative of the Naturally Namibia approach. If you are looking for great guiding combined with easy walking and proper 4WD trails, then consider the 50,000 hectare Etendeka Concession. Pioneering Liebenberg had carte blanche when he scoured the area for camp locations and as the sun rises over the dramatic valley floor setting, you understand why he chose this spot.
There is a level of safari authenticity throughout the Etendeka experience that is becoming rare in some parts of Africa. The prime location, distinctive wildlife and personal service all set the camp apart. Take a look at some of our flagship itineraries for ideas on incorporating Etendeka in your safari.
Mushara Lodge is back in business after a complete remodel. The airy main building and guest rooms are flooded with light. A boma for fireside dining has been added to compliment the softly lit dining verandah. Marc and Mariza are delighted with the finished property which is packed with the highest quality furnishings and unique photography from Etosha for which Mushara is known. Mushara's guides are enjoying a remarkable tally of predator sightings during the tail end of the park's wetter season. Etosha's lion population is extremely healthy and sighting numbers are predictably high. March has also been a good month for rhino sightings in the eastern park. The most amazing images we have seen so far this season were from Mariza's failed lion hunt, you can see those on the flickr link at the bottom of this page.
The original Mushara property is also home to Etosha's only family house and the splendid luxury of the two villas. The latest images can be seen here.
