This desert reserve has a number of fresh water springs that support healthy populations of animals including desert-adapted black rhino and elephant as well as large populations of the Hartmann’s mountain zebra, giraffe, oryx, springbok and kudu. The predator population is the largest outside the Etosha National Park with over 100 lion, cheetah, leopard, brown- and spotted hyena. Birdlife is prolific and diverse with most of Namibia’s endemics present. The Concession also supports nearly 70% of the world's largest free-ranging population of black rhinoceros and functions as the crucial core area in the region. The unique fauna and flora within the Concession also serve as a national, regional and global attraction.

Wildlife

The wildlife in Namibia is myriad with many different ecosystems offering different game viewing. From the Desert adapted species to the savanna species, Namibia has everything you could want from a Safari and much, much more besides.

  • Oryx

    The desert-adapted Antelope species is found in many areas of this vast country and it is likely you will encounter one.

  • Spotted Hyena

    This common species can be seen throughout Namibia, especially in Etosha National Park.

  • Giraffe

    A regular sighting even in areas of stunted or little trees, this is a common animal even in the deserts.

  • Desert Elephants

    Namibia's Desert Elephants are elusive and can be difficult to find as they go from waterhole to waterhole.

  • Cheetah

    The Cheetah is very rare and not often seen but on the rare occasion it can be seen both in open and forested areas.

  • Leopard

    The Leopard is seen in most settings but still very elusive and they are particularly abundant in Etosha.

  • Lion

    Namibia has desert-adapted Lions, which are extremely difficult to see, as well as the usual plains Lions in Etosha.

  • Black Rhino

    Namibia is probably the best place to see free-roaming Rhino's with Black Rhino being the most common.
