  • On December 4th, the world celebrated International Cheetah Day. Cheetah’s are one of Africa’s most endangered big cats, listed as ‘vulnerable’ on the IUCN Red Data Book List. Their numbers have declined by 90% over the past century, dropping to only about 10 000 today. The main reason for the decline is human-wildlife conflict, disappearing habitat, and loss of prey. During early 2000, work between Erindi and the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) began in earnest with a project to regularly introduce rehabilitated cheetah into Erindi. CCF’s ability to succeed depends on your generous support. Click link in bio to donate. (📷 by @marinacano)

  • Just lion around and dream'n. Hi, all, @donalboyd here. I've had the enormous pleasure of exploring Erindi with two amazing guides/trackers the past two days. The experience has been beyond anything I expected! Never could I have imagined we'd be meandering through the mountains tracking lions by their paw prints. Unforgettable. We found these two playful siblings just before dusk the other evening. After more than a month of traveling around Namibia... Erindi is the one place I'm more than certain to return to!
