AfriCat UK Our vision statement is "Conservation, Education and Community Enhancement". We predominantly support and raise awareness of the work of the AfriCat Foundation and the Namibian Lion Trust both of which are in Namibia

The AfriCat Foundation was set up in the early 1990's. It is based at the Okonjima Lodge www.okonjima.com a private, 22,000-hectare Nature Reserve, that is home to an impressive range of wildlife including the rare brown hyena and leopards some of which wear 'collars' to easy tracking. It is 50 kilometers south of Otjiwarongo in central Namibia. The AfriCat Foundation grew out of a desire to help ensure that Namibia's populations of the large carnivores could thrive and run free and wild. It has remained true to its principles of conservation through education and research. Over time it has developed its conservation efforts to include other endangered species. Habitat loss has been identified as a key issue.

The Namibian Lion Trust (formerly AfriCat North) is based on the western borders of Etosha National Park around the Hobatere Concession area. The Namibian Lion Trust  is a project that is focussed on Human Wildlife Conflict Mitigation with the goal on supporting the community farmers to live and prosper alongside the lions. The programme recruits and employs elected members of the communities 'the Lion Guards' to work with their fellow farmers offering support and help to reduce livestock losses through kraal building, running an early warning system for lions and initiatives for community enhancement, like Onguta School. 

You can support either charity AfriCat Foundation/Namibian Lion Trust or chose a specific project. The details are listed as campaigns – see box outlined in green on the left where more information can be found. Funds donated through these pages will all go to Namibia and are eligible for gift aid. Donations made to AfriCat UK go to support the projects and to meet AfriCat UK’s running costs.

AfriCat UK is a small team of volunteers, based in the UK. Please feel free to contact us by email us on info-uk@africat.org and check out the website www.africat.co.uk.  We do put on events and are keen to hear from those willing to help us with ideas and/or fundraising. 

Thank you for your support
