The Big Cats & Kraals project looks at the problems which are caused when human and big cat territories clash. Namibian communities rely on their cattle for food, but when big cats raid and kill the livestock, the farmers will kill the big cats. To create sustainability, the community need help with the construction of kraals: enclosures for their livestock which protect from big cat raids.

  • Work with local farmers to construct animal enclosures to protect livestock from big cat attacks.
  • Learn about the problems facing big cat populations and the efforts made to overcome these.
  • Develop an understanding of the causes of human versus wildlife conflicts and explore sustainable solutions.
  • Explore the options for cultural exchanges and lifestyle insights between your group and the community.

This project focuses on kraal construction and groups work with the community to help build these. The project also allows for fantastic cultural exchange opportunities with the community and groups can learn about the challenges of living in rural Africa.
