Volunteering at N/a’ankuse Wildife Conservation Centre in Namibia 2018

A few weeks ago I arrived at the N/a’ankuusê Wildlife Centre and wrote this blog. I am immediately impressed by the whole organisation, surrounding, volunteers and the animals I may stay between and may take care of for the next weeks. I am sleeping at the border of the camp in a luxury tent, the Black Mamba (named after a venemous snake which is living in this area). It is a tent with two single beds, but for now I have the place for myself. The view is really stunning. I just can look over a part of the reserve where the animals just live in the wild with at the horizon on two sides small mountains. With the whole Tiny Houses movement in the world, can I see myself living in this tent with private bathroom. However, there is a wall around it, but now roof. You just shower and pooh in the open air. Nice for now, but when it is winter?

Where I am specially thrilled about, are the many services they organizing to lower down there global footprint. How? By al, the tents they have solar panels and boilers for electricity and hot water. All the garbish is seperated from each other and they really looking after it tht the volunteers put the trash in the right bin. There are rules to minimalize the water usage. I am impressed for a country where the resources are not always available to get busy with this kind of subjects.

Conclusion :
Attention for the environment = good
Organisation = excellent
