First Invitation EVER to the Game Count in the Gondwana Kalahari Park

“Don’t talk to me. I’m counting.”

For the first time in the tourism company's history, Gondwana Collection Namibia is offering the public the opportunity to take part in the annual game count in the Gondwana Kalahari Park on 25 and 26 June. The game count provides valuable data to the park management in terms of game numbers and diversity. Add to that, relaxing hours at Kalahari Anib Lodge that can be filled with activities like ebiking and hiking.

Gondwana Kalahari Park is characterised by a uniquely picturesque landscape of elongated dunes and valleys of red sand, yellow grass and green acacias. This private nature reserve (98 km²), owned by the Gondwana Collection, is home to animals which are typical for the Kalahari - like springbok, gemsbok, jackal and bat-eared fox as well as ostrich, kori bustard and many other types of birds.

After research established which animals occurred in the area historically, new stock of plains zebra, eland antelope, blue wildebeest, red hartebeest and giraffe was gradually re-introduced. A scientifically sound game management programme resulted in increased diversity of animal species and, as far as possible, nature’s restoration to its original state. The programme is monitored by qualified park management staff.

The Gondwana Kalahari Park is situated 30km northeast of Mariental. After many years of drought, there was abundant rain fall this year, the pasture has recovered and presumably so has the wildlife population.
