Janet and Carey from AfriCat UK have decided to each take on a different walking challenge through Walk for Wildlife.

Carey completed his South Downs walk on the 25th June. Janet set her sights on a night walk in the heart of the New Forest on the 28th October.

Janet said having been brought up in the New Forest I thought it would be fun to go back and explore it at night. The 20 miles will present a considerable personal challenge and I hope it will help me to get fitter, shed a few pounds and raise much needed funds for AfriCat’s work with lions in Namibia. With the walk getting closer I am starting to worry about staying awake. Building my fitness up more slowly than I would like...

Walk 4 Wildlife LOGOarranged a number of walks across the country over the summer this is the last. 

The AfriCat Foundation in Namibia works tirelessly to conserve the large carnivores. AfriCat HQ has its own reserve at Okonjima Lodge, where you can stay and see aspects of the project in action including tracking rehabilitated cheetah and the habituated leopards.


The lion projects of AfriCat North are based near Etosha National Park. Here the challenges are about helping local communities farm successfully alongside the lions.  All donations made will be going to support the work of AfriCat North. This includes paying the local AfriCat Lion Guards, running the camera traps which are a vital part of the research project as is the monoritng and collaring. The human widlife mitigation programme includes education, building kraals and helping to build a local community school
