Naankuse Namibia Predator Research Project
Study Africa’s largest cheetah population in the breathtaking Namib desert.
Have you always wanted to experience the more adventurous side of wildlife conservation? As a volunteer on our Predator Research Experience, you’ll be based across two locations. One of which is a remote outpost deep in the heart of Namibia’s vast desert landscape.
The towering sand dunes here are home to 25% of the world’s remaining cheetahs, most of whom still roam freely across the wilderness. Working alongside scientists who specialise in big cat research, you’ll study the predators’ movement and behaviour. You’ll also have the chance to camp out in the desert overnight to observe the region’s nocturnal brown hyena.
This experience will also take you to a farm where you’ll support the project team in monitoring and feeding a group of cheetah that have been released into this safe, controlled environment.
If you love the idea of an intrepid adventure, working with big cats across two extraordinary environments, this is the experience for you.
