Erindi: Safari Destination Like No Other

Erindi: Safari Destination Like No Other

There is a plethora of fantastic safari destinations in southern Africa to choose from. Selecting one for your next annual holiday destination can be tricky. But if you are passionate about nature and wildlife conservation, the options can be narrowed down rather quickly. Namibia is an incredibly underrated country, and should by no means be overlooked. The Namibian government takes their conservation laws very seriously, and they constantly strive to

The Wild Dog Conservation Programme

The Wild Dog Conservation Programme

The African wild dog, Lycaon pictus, is native to Sub-Saharan Africa. It has few natural predators, but habitat fragmentation, human persecution and disease have slashed its numbers. According to the World Wildlife Fund, the African wild dog is one of the rarest and most endangered mammals in the world. Current population estimates are between 3000 and 6600. The story of the African wild dog conservation programme at Erindi Private Game

The Serval Conservation Project

The Serval Conservation Project

Photo cred: N. Britz (c) The serval, Leptailurus serval, is a medium-sized African wild cat. During the hunting era on the reserve, the first confirmed serval was a photograph of one shot by a hunter. Its presence on Erindi was a surprise, as the reserve isn’t within the known distribution range of this animal. In early 2008, the Global Leopard Project at Erindi found the remains of a serval that

The Pangolin Conservation Project

The Pangolin Conservation Project

Photo cred: R. Cloete (c) The pangolin or scaly anteater, Manis temminckii, is a solitary, nocturnal mammal that lives in burrows. Its diet consists mainly of ants and termites which it scoops up with its long, specially adapted tongue. Pangolin populations worldwide are under pressure by poaching and habitat degradation. Thought to be the most trafficked mammal globally, pangolins are listed as ‘vulnerable’, ‘endangered’ and ‘critically endangered’ on the IUCN

The Lion Management Project

The Lion Management Project

Photo cred: Donal Boyd Photography The lion, Panthera leo, was labelled a ‘problem animal’ when it killed livestock on Namibian farms to survive. This created a human-wildlife conflict, because rural communities often took matters into their own hands and would set up traps to remove rogue lions altogether. After Erindi learned of this, lions were transferred from outside Etosha National Park and slowly introduced into the reserve from 2005 onwards.

The Honey Badger Conservation Project

The Honey Badger Conservation Project

The honey badger or ratel, Mellivora capensis, looks more like a weasel than other badgers. Primarily carnivorous, it has few natural predators because of its extremely thick, loose skin and ferocious fighting abilities. The Erindi ecology team caught honey badgers in cage traps, then moved them to crates for transport. Once at the veterinary surgery in Omaruru, the badgers were anaesthetised and Dr Otto Zabka implanted VHF transmitters under the

The Global Leopard Project

The Global Leopard Project

Photo cred: N. Britz (c) The leopard, Panthera pardus, is found throughout Namibia, except on the Skeleton Coast. Because they occasionally take livestock on farmland, they’re actively persecuted through trapping, shooting and poisoning, and hundreds are killed annually. With the growth in human populations and changing land-use practices, it has become essential to resolve the conflict between leopards and humans in order to ensure the survival of these cats and

The Elephant Conservation Project

The Elephant Conservation Project

Populations of the African elephant, Loxodonta africana, were significantly reduced by poaching in the late 20th century. The 2015 population estimate for Namibia is over 20 000 elephants: the northwest population is about 4 000 animals and includes the elephants in Etosha National Park, while the northeastern population is over 16 000 animals. Erindi is home to over 120 African elephants and growing. The Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism

The Cheetah Conservation Project

The Cheetah Conservation Project

Photo cred: J. Nel (c) The cheetah, Acinonyx jubatus, is classified as ‘vulnerable’ in the IUCN Red Data Book List. Cheetah’s are one of Africa’s most endangered big cats. Their numbers have declined by 90% over the past century, dropping from 100 000 to only about 10 000 today. The main reason for the decline is human-wildlife conflict, disappearing habitat, and loss of prey. Namibia has the largest and healthiest

The Aardvark Conservation Project

The Aardvark Conservation Project

Photo cred: GP Britz (c) The aardvark, Orycteropus afer, is a nocturnal burrowing mammal native to Africa. It uses its long, pig-like snout to sniff out food, mainly ants and termites, which it digs out using its sharp claws and powerful legs. Highly intelligent, aardvarks proved a very challenging animal for the Erindi ecology team to capture. Even a cage trap, carefully and quietly placed at the entrance to an

  • Wild dogs may be pretty to photograph, but there’s no mistaking how fierce they are. Being successful pack hunters, they are able to chase antelope for miles until their prey reaches exhaustion. The pack will bite the legs and rear of their prey until they bring it down. During this process, they are incredibly vocal and will eat unbelievably fast. Interestingly, the pups get to eat first - a reverse hierarchy of sorts. 🐾💕 Photo: @jason_block1 - - - #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #wilddog #predator #paintedwolf #fierce #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet

  • We weren’t lying when we said we have the largest lions in Africa. Our lionesses average 160kg, which is 40kg heavier than female lions recorded anywhere else on the continent. They are so robust due to our excellent lion management project, which ensures an ecological balance between predators and prey on the reserve. Careful management maintains a strong gene pool. 👑 📷 Photo: @jason_block1 . . . #regram #erindi #erindinamibia #lions #lioness #big5 #worldrecord #conservation #animalkingdom #africa #photography #nakedplanet #travel #safari #wildlife #animals #wilderness #natgeo #natgeowild #picoftheday #explore #travelgram #wildlifephotography #protectwildlife #lonelyplanet
