Reviews for Carnivore conservation & research in Namibia


review 9 Oct 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

All of it ! Being involved with an on-going human conflicr situation where the farmer was loosing livestock to a problem cheetah allowed me to see 1st hand the devastation that can be caused; then being lucky enough for our group to accompany the vet who darted the problem cheetah who had been caught in a catch cage, thanks to the skill and knowledge of our coordinator. The cheetah's vital signs were all checked, a new GPS collar fitted and then she was re-located.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bring a few more layers than you might think you'll need .... I was there in Sept and at nights it dropped well below zero. But most importantly bring a camera to capture the amazing things you'll see and come ready to love every minute .... Neuras is stunning and the Neuras family (Karoline, Douglas, Laura, Weyland, Ernesta to name but a few) are SO welcoming that you don't want to leave ??? Also come prepared to make life-long friends - I met the most awesome group of people who I know I will keep in touch with and hopefully either welcome to my home or see again somewhere !

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - Neuras is very eco-conscious, employs a lot of local people and thanks to my coordinator Karoline, I really felt I learned SO much about not just the wildlife but birds, vegetation, the environment, the geography and conservation. I also know we worked hard to support farmers facing threat and danger from animals to improve human-animal conflict.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

FANTASTIC WONDERFUL AMAZING INCREDIBLE. The best 2 weeks of my life ??????.
