Northwest Namibia Community Outreach

While Natural Selection’s operation in this area is still fairly new, we are busy working on the best way to assist communities with conservation communication and sustainable practices

VHF Radio Communication Tower

Mitigating wildlife crimes through improved communication and response times.

Communication is key, particularly in remote areas, and our very own Namibia Tracks and Trails has recently completed the installation of a VHF radio communication system in northwest Namibia to assist communications between ourselves and Elephant and Human Relations Aid (EHRA), as well as local police. This enables everyone to jump swiftly to attention in the event of any wildlife crime being committed.

The Ozondjou Namibia Tracks and Trails mobile camp also raised an additional N$270,000 for EHRA last year.

Sesfontein Recycling Project
Improving waste management through recycling in Sesfontein Village.

Sustainability is an important facet of our business, and a big part of that is recycling. It’s an area we are continually trying to improve on through systems such as integrated waste management (reduce, reuse and recycle). In 2020, we will be working with the Sesfontein community, our partners at Hoanib Valley Camp, to upgrade the existing dumpsite to improve efficiencies and create a recycling depot for the area.

Sesfontein Boarding School

Children from extremely remote corners of northwest Namibia attend this boarding school with very limited means. As a start towards supporting this school, we have supplied beds for the children. Supplies for the children will continue to be in short supply so we will be offering further assistance in the future and offering guests the opportunity to contribute school supplies as well – something many guests inquire about.
