Kunene-Etendeka Namibia
The Kunene-Etendeka region in Namibia is located in the north-east of the country. It is a stony, dusty and lonely place of great beauty.

It is home to the largest population of black rhino in the world outside of a national park. Our Rhino Rangers, who protect the rhinos in cooperation with the local population and the Save the Rhino Trust, depend on tourism. If the income through tourism is lost, we need to step in and support the rangers.

Furthermore, a small population of lions has adapted to its extremely harsh conditions, and contributes to making this inhospitable coastal strip in northern Namibia one of the most fascinating areas in Africa.

Help to ensure that poaching does not increase in the Kunene-Etendeka region and that both rhinos and desert lions remain protected.
