The AfriCat Foundation’s headquarters are based in the 200 square kilometre private Okonjima Nature Reserve, located 50 kilometres south of Otjiwarongo in central Namibia. The AfriCat Foundation was founded in the early 1990s and formally registered as a non-profit organisation in August 1993. The Foundation’s northern operation, AfriCat North, is based along Etosha National Park’s south-western boundary, and strives to mitigate Human-Wildlife Conflict on commercial farmland, especially with regards to the lion (panthera leo), by educating Namibia’s youth, encouraging adapted livestock management, and conducting essential research and 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 its mission - the long-term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores.
