Re-Wildling Namibia's farmland

The renowned conservationist Ian Craig and the leading mega-fauna veterinary Pete Morkel recently secured 45,000 hectares of land for the sole purpose of conserving Namibia’s wildlife. Their vision is to ecologically restore the land, link up with neighbouring conservancies and one day turn the greater protected area into a National Park and a home for Namibia's endangered wildlife.

Oana's habitat is semi-arid mountainous desert in the Nama-Karoo biome encompassing 50km stretch of the Orange River. We are home to some of the most iconic species of flora and fauna such as the Quiver tree, the African leopard, the Greater Kudu, Brown Hyena, Caracal, Oryx, Honey badger, Aardvark, Giant Kingfisher and the African Black Eagle.
