      The Desert Carnivore Experience

      Okonjima, just north of Windhoek, Namibia, seems like a collection of camps in the middle of the wild desert. But there is a neat story attached to this place. For many years VJ and Rose Hansen were cattle farmers on the Okonjima Farm, but they were experiencing unsustainable stock losses due to hungry leopards, as well as the poor grazing conditions. They turned to researching the predators’ behavior for a better solution. They also took in the leopards and cheetahs caught in traps by their neighbors: The Africat Welfare Program was born. Over time, the program transformed Okonjima into a private reserve, and it changed the face of carnivore conservation. Today, Okonjima is an excellent place to witness the incredible story of survival in these incredibly harsh conditions.
