Get to Know NamibRand Nature Reserve
More than 2,000 square kilometres of privately protected desert wilderness sharing 100 kilometres of its western border with the vast and remote Namib-Naukluft National Park
Established as a non-profit private reserve in 1992, this vast tract of arid wilderness forms part of the fragile Namib ecosystem. Notable for its haunting desert scenery and overwhelming sense of space, NamibRand – like its neighbour Namib-Naukluft National Park – is not a conventional safari destination in the mould of, say, the Serengeti or Kruger. Nevertheless, it does support a varied selection of dry-country wildlife, most conspicuously around 12,000 springbok and 3,000 oryx, and smaller numbers of the near-endemic Hartmann’s mountain zebra.
