The AfriCat Foundation’s headquarters are based in Okonjima's 22 000 ha private, Nature Reserve, 50 kilometers south of Otjiwarongo in central Namibia. The AfriCat Foundation was founded in the early 90’s and formally registered as a non-profit organisation in August 1993. AfriCat North is based along Etosha’s south-western boundary, and strives to mitigate Human-Wildlife Conflict on farmland especially with regards to the lion (Panthera leo), by educating the youth, encouraging adapted livestock management and conducting essential research & monitoring of wild lion populations.
AfriCat has since grown significantly and what started out primarily as a welfare organisation has over the years identified the need to include a focus on education and research as being essential to accomplishing our mission - the long-term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores.
