Reviews for Namibia carnivore conservation & research project


review 23 Oct 2017

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

My most memorable activity was actually my first where I returned a greeting to a baboon as indicated by the guides, I later had to endure a grooming from one of the baboons. The most exciting part was heading to the Big Daddy sand dune in Sossusvlei. Kind of what I always imagined an adventure to be.

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

Two weeks is not enough, to get the most out of your time at this project you'll need to be there at least a month and then there's the other sites to consider.

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

This holiday definitely helped in supporting conservation, and my understanding of what it takes. I might have always understood the nature of the tasks but in the end I knew it played some part.

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

Downsides, the site can get awfully crowded and more pricey than you'd think, upsides there's loads to do, genuinely something new everyday. To those looking for a quieter and slower pace then I'd advise to book yourself a trip to one of the research sites that cater for smaller groups.
