Farm Waterval & the Khomas Hochland Conservancy
The home of ORYXHUNT, Farm Waterval, situated in the Khomas Highlands, west of Namibia's capital, Windhoek, is a member of the Khomas Hochland Conservancy (KHC).
Covering more than 20 farms and a total of about 120 000 ha, the conservancy spreads out over a vast area of rolling hills and pronounced valleys - centrally located, about an hour's drive west of Windhoek, yet very remote. Here, you not only feel to be but are right in the middle of Namibia's game-rich bushveld.
Conservancies are a uniquely Namibian nature conservation concept that
proved so successful over the last 20+ years that it was not only
adopted by many of our neighbouring countries but recommended
by the UN to many countries around the world that are experiencing
large-scale loss of wildlife.
Statistical data collected, since Namibia became an independent
republic in 1990, clearly shows that many game species have recovered in
numbers, since the introduction of conservancies, while the numbers of
others believed to be on the decrease, e.g. kudu, actually grew
substantially right across the country.
Nature conservation in Namibia is still rescuing various species from the brink of extinction, on a daily basis. Let us know, if you'd like to meet some of them!
