Day 1

Windhoek Settle In

Welcome to Windhoek

You’ll arrive in Windhoek in the early hours and be whisked away to Chameleon Backpackers Hostel – a great little place with a pool where you can relax and recover from your flight before being scooped up and taken on a cycle tour around the city – stopping off at local arts and crafts markets along the way, (a great place to get gifts to take home).

After a busy day soaking in the history and sights you will head to the famous Joe’s Beer house for supper.This is an awesome restaurant with the most fun interiors that will really get you feeling the African vibe from early on.

Etosha National Park Game Drive + Wildlife

The ultimate game drive experience

Your adventure now really gets going as you head off to the spectacular Etosha National Park for simply one of the best places on the planet to spot wildlife.

Etosha boasts a network of waterholes dispersed amongst the grasslands – providing ideal grazing ground to view the abundance of species that Namibia has to offer.

Did you know - a single waterhole can attract over 1,000 animals per day, with lions and rhinos being the highlights. Trust us, you could sit in your safari truck for hours marvelling at these majestic creatures. Nightime viewings at the waterhole are hauntingly beautiful as you see elephants meandering along and hear the echoing stomp of a rhino – your senses will be on fire. Truly awe inspiring. You could hear a pin drop.

While in Etosha you will camp for 4 nights at 3 different campsites: Etosha Namutoni, Okaukuejo and the famous Okonjima dotted around the reserve, so you feel you are on a journey through this magical place – falling asleep listening to the roars and squawks of the wildlife – it truly is a wild at heart experience. You will remember it forever – I promise.

You last night will be at the amazing Okonjima private nature reserve which is dedicated to conserving wildlife and your last morning will be spent with the AfriCat Carnivore Care – founded in 1991. The AfriCat Foundation is perfectly situated to conduct ecological research focusing on a variety of rare and endangered species.

As Okonjima is an enclosed nature reserve, one component of AfriCat’s research focuses on understanding the ecology of leopard and brown hyaenas living within Okonjima, with the ultimate aim of producing informed, sustainable metapopulation management guidelines for these species.

After lunch, you’ll head off to your next location along the famous Skeleton Coast to Swakopmund for phase 2.


Etosha Namutoni, Okaukuejo and Okonjima campsites

Swakopmund Dune Hikes + Dolphin Watching

Desert Life and Skeleton Coast

Sandwiched between Atlantic rollers and the Namib Desert, Swakopmund, on the Skeleton Coast is one of those places not to be missed on any Namibian road trip.

Here you will spend 4 nights in a hostel called the Salty Jackal and spend the next few days exploring the Cape Cross seal colony – the largest congregation of seal, completing lots of majestic dune/beach hikes, hanging out at the beach, dolphin/whale watching and kayaking in Walvis Bay lagoon before signing yourself up to a number of Top Gear style adventures.

Typical adventures available include: kayaking, skydiving, sandboarding and even a 4x4 drive through the dunes.Please note these are extra.

Days 10-11

Sossusvlei The Dead Valley Dunes

Explore the stunning Dead Valley and Iconic Dunes

Next up is a drive to Sesriem to emerge yourself into yet another contrasting environment – the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei. An area of outstanding beauty - situated in one of the largest conservation areas in Africa; Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan surrounded by dunes, some of the tallest in the world at 400m.

You’ll spend 2 nights here to give you time to climb the Big Daddy Dune, explore the Dead Vlei (Dead Marsh), walk along the canyon at sunset and star gaze from the Elam dune - an astronomer’s paradise.

Big Daddy Dune is the highest dune in the world. As you climb you will feel the soft sand trickling underneath your walking boots and half the time feel you are going backwards but crack on as the view from the top is so worth it.

Dead Vlei (Dead Marsh) is another iconic spectacle – here you will see dried out dead trees from 700 years ago on white salt pan base with the dunes behind it - the contrasting block colours are incredible and leave you with many insta worthy photos.

In the evening you’ll explore the Sesriem Canyon on a sunset walk – this is Africa at its best.

Oana Conservancy Conservation

Discover the national park

Oana Conservancy is a private reserve covering 45,000 hectares of raw Africa. It hosts a dramatic semi-desert landscape made up of small mountains and sandy plains with the Orange River running alongside, creating an idyllic oasis of green contrasting with the terracotta hue of sand and mountains.The next part of your journey will be to take you off grid to the reserve we have been supporting for years. Here you will stay in a mobile camp set up their headquarters from which you will become fully immersed in a combination of conservation, involving camera trapping, ecological restoration and gemsbok surveys; adventure, such as trekking, mountain biking; and community projects focusing on a soup kitchen and planting vegetables.

The next part of your journey will be to take you off grid to the reserve we have been supporting for years. Here you will stay in a mobile camp set up their headquarters from which you will become fully immersed in a combination of conservation, involving camera trapping, ecological restoration and gemsbok surveys; adventure, such as trekking, mountain biking; and community projects focusing on a soup kitchen and planting vegetables.

Oana has begun a journey of ecological restoration and rewilding after its previous life as a hunting and farming ranch. Owned by the renowned conservationist Ian Craig, who’s vision is for the conservancy to become a safe sanctuary for black rhino and other large mammals that have been locally exterminated, link up with neighbouring conservancies and one day turn the greater protected area into a National Park to home Namibia's endangered wildlife.

Oana is home to some of the most iconic species of flora and fauna such as the Quiver Tree, the African Leopard, the Greater Kudu, Brown Hyena, Caracal, Gemsbok, Springbok, Mountain Zebra, Honey badger, Aardvark, Clawless Otter Giant Kingfisher and the African Black Eagle. However, it is an area unstudied and given its history we need to understand who lives here, who lives where and in what numbers. This is the first stage of 're-wilding' the land. To do this you will set off across the reserve to literally seek out the wildlife, count what you see and analyse faeces and track prints. Other reserve jobs that need doing are:

•Removing unnecessary fences, structures and scrap.
•Developing water points for animals.
•Building micro-basins to help with plains regeneration
•Removing alien vegetation on the property and along the river.


Hiking will be a big part of your time here and the potential for exploration is limitless over the mountain ranges made up of different rock types, (the area is a global geological hotspot), ranging from terracotta granite outcrops to towering, black, perfectly formed volcanos (all extinct).

These mountains are interspersed with sandy grass plains and 50km of river frontage.A decent level of fitness should be attained before you travel to Namibia.

Mountain Biking

You’ll venture out on the reserve by mountain bike on a specially designed 20km bike trail that weaves through the mountains and ridges, showing off the stunning mountain landscape.

There are fast bits, slow(er) bits, technical bits and chilled straights so don’t worry - riders of every ability will be able to do join in.

Rhino Tracking

While you are here you nip off to a secret destination for a night to head off with local trackers to find a small family of protected rhino.This, I promise will be one of your highlights – trust us – we can’t go into any more detail for their safety.

Optional Extra - Rafting Down the Orange River

While you are at Oana you might want to head out on a 3 night adventure to white water raft down the Orange River (up to level 3 rapids) stopping off at idyllic sandy beaches along the way. You’ll raft during the mornings before stopping off at a beach to build a camp for the night.Your afternoons will be spent sunbathing, swimming, fishing, reading and relaxing. Whilst rafting you’ll see amazing bird life, perhaps the elusive clawless otter and conduct bird biodiversity surveys as you go. You’ll raft through gorges, canyons and you will pass around the stunning Richie Falls, the 3rd highest waterfall on the Orange River.

This costs £300 pp and is payable locally.

NB: This activity will be dependent on a min number of 6 and water levels, vegetation, safety reasons etc so it’s not guaranteed.


Camping inside the reserve.


All meals included, apart from the last day if you choose to white water raft.

The Long Term Plan for Oana

With rhino and elephants on the brink of extinction; renowned conservationist Ian Craig, Prince William’s and Sir David Attenborough’s right-hand man when it comes to conservation, made a heroic decision to intervene and secured 45,000 hectares of Namibia with the single aim of providing a home for the last remaining black rhino.

He enrolled scientists Andrea and Ed (the fun kind) to help his cause. Together they have turned the land into a conservancy called Oana and have drawn up a 5-year plan and list of tasks needed to transform the land back into the ideal habitat to reintroduce and protect the black rhino. Eventually they will join up with neighbouring reserves to create a new National Park for Namibia.

Our leap volunteers are key to this transition as they get stuck into hands-on conservation and leave knowing they have made a difference to the future of critically endangered wildlife of Africa.

Tackling the rapids of the Orange River Will and Abby

Day 11 - Today was a very early morning. The whole camp woke up before the sunrise and headed over to one of the cow baits in hopes to catch sight of a leopard. Although we didn't see any leopards, we still had an exciting day of travelling to the South Africa-Namibia border to start out white water rafting adventure. We met our guides, Max and Heinrich, and began to prep for our expedition.

Day 12 - Setting off in pairs, we began rafting down the Orange River today. Our rafts were loaded down with all of our camping supplies for the next three days. Approaching our first rapid, Abby and Nina quickly became stuck on a rock, while Adolph and Will took the more adventurous route, completing the the rapid backwards. Our first campsite was on a beautiful shoreline of the river, and we enjoyed swimming in the river and sitting around the campfire.

Day 13 - Our second day of rafting begin with a risky, large rapid. After successfully completing the rapid, we carried our rafts on foot to our lunch location. In order to launch for our afternoon of paddling, we repelled the boats down a cliffside. Our camping site for the night was near a beautiful large waterfall that we got the chance to check out, and some even got in the splash zone! We spent the afternoon fishing, swimming, and lazing around.

Day 14 - Our last day of rafting was concluded with the largest rapid of the trip, Big Bunny. After a briefing and demonstration of the rapid, our teams set out. Adolph and Will once again completed the rapid backwards, while Abby and Nina had a textbook run. Red and Beth completed the rapid as well, but got caught up in the excitement and continued down the river without us! When we arrived to the pickup location we unloaded our rafts and began the hour drive back to the rafting camp. Arriving back at the rafting camp involved beers, chocolate, and large amounts of food.

Day 15 - We had a long drive back to camp in the morning and spent the rest of the day was a lot of lazing around.

Day 16 - To start the day off we collected some camera traps we'd previously set up which had some great zebra, Orix and Kudu pictures. In the afternoon we sketched out a water hole design then marked it out and began to dig.

Day 17- Once again we were back digging out the water point and making a few final adjustments which seemed a lot harder than it should've mainly because of a freakishly hot wind that just wouldn't seem to go away.

Cow heads and the 5 peak challenge Beth and Nina

Day 1 - After arriving at camp on the truck, "Kong," we settled into our tents the girls all bundling into one and the two lads taking one each. Dinner at the Octopus (the main tent) was closely followed by a number of beers and ice breakers for us all to get to know each other before heading to bed.

Day 2 - The morning bought a slower start as we went through how the camp operates, the safety briefing and the itinerary. Then we went for what Red defined as a "light" hike; this was not accurate at all! Half way up a vertical rock face, sweating and unable to breathe we realised our differences with his definition. However, we powered through making it to the top where the views were breathtaking and for sure worth the trek.

Day 3 - Today's task was to destroy some invasive tree species. We all loaded onto Kong and drove to where a few trees had already been cut down to stumps. We hacked the branches into smaller pieces for kindling with saws, axes, and machetes, then set the base of the stumps alight.

Day 4 + 5 - Today we did our first walking transect, which is when we cover a certain area of the conservancy and record data on animal sighting, dung, and tracks in an app called CyberTracking. We walked about 8 kilometres and collected lots of data on kudu, eland, oryx, zebra, and others.

Day 6 + 7 - Camera traps - we all piled into the truck to check some baited camera traps. Most of what we found was mischievous mongooses. Then we drove to three different water holes and set up new camera traps.

Day 8 - Today we started constructing a water hole for the animals. We dug a hole, shovel-mixed a batch of cement, and laid flat rocks in the bottom.

Day 9 - Today was an interesting day to say the least. We prepared fresh cow heads and hooves for leopard bait. Each of us took turns stabbing thought the hooves in order to thread a wire through and hang them from a tree. The first time was terrifying but by the third head we were a little more used to it. That evening we all enjoyed very thorough showers. Dinner was hamburgers, which we all found ironic and mildly disturbing, but delicious nonetheless.

Day 10 - Peak day. Our task for today was to climb five peaks and spend an hour on top of each recording all the wildlife we could see. We woke up at 6am and were at the top of our first mountain by 8:15. The first two peaks were the hardest and also unsuccessful in terms of finding game, but again the views were worth it. The last three peaks were more fruitful and we finished up and got back to camp, completely drained, by 6pm. Dinner never tasted so good and it was early to bed for all of us.

Rafting on the Orange River Millie Edwards

Our third week was started off with an epic day of invasive tree removal, which was thoroughly enjoyed and pegged as one of our favourite days of the trip. Saturday was a slightly different activity of fence removal and was not a popular one within the group, leaving us all with a hatred for wire. On the third day we packed up and headed across the border for our four day rafting trip on the Orange River.

On Monday, after a quick safety chat from Coby - our guide - and 30 mins of drilling into Imi S that there were no crocodiles and hippos, the rafting began. We were quick to discover that despite Ivo and Ralphs strong bromance they were not the perfect rafting pair. Base camp for the night was on the Namibian side of the river and after our chicken stir fry Coby began to ‘impress’ us with his ‘amazing’ jokes... and his rather questionable games, leading to the majority of the group going to bed at 7pm.

Day 2 on the Orange River started off with a change in the rafting teams where Ralph was paired with Imi S instead of Ivo. However, tensions in the group soon fizzled out after one of the best sundowners of the trip so far and an evening around the fire, involving some more games, which Imi G, as hard as she tried, was not so good at when being partnered up with Ivo and Magnus.

Determined to boost moral on day 3 Ralph spontaneously whipped out the Sponge-bob Squarepants theme tune and continued this throughout the trip. One of the most beautiful moments of the trip was when ‘megaraft’ was formed. All the rafts United and we’d never felt closer as a team.

With Red never running out of energy, a hike to a gorge along the river was at the top of his list for an afternoon activity. With a few reluctant groans the whole group joined him after being promised it would “probably” be about an hour’s hike. It was an incredible sight to see though and definitely worth the advanced level rock climbing trek.

Getting back to camp with homemade burgers and chips by Raul was certainly a good end to a good week.

Snake hunting and volleyball matches Ellen Robshaw

The game count we did in the Wild West sector on Sunday was much more successful than the Gemsbok study at the start of last week as we saw Gemsbok, Springbok and Red hearted beast. When we got back to camp, everyone, except Katie and I, decided to have a volleyball game; Max, Minty, Jonty, Will Gray and Dre on one team, Hamish, Hayden, Welles, Beth and Red on the other. As the game was finishing, a Horologist, named Francois, from Nankuse arrived to teach us about the native snakes and lizards, with three of the students from the research project. After introductions, the sun had just set, so we all set out on a night walk around camp, looking for snakes and lizards. Will Gray found a Cape Coral shield cobra almost immediately, then one of the volunteers from Nankuse found a shovelled nosed snake and others found two geckos.

The next morning while it was still cold, we all set out to the planes behind camp to see if we could find any snakes or lizards. After a few near misses, we came back for lunch empty-handed. That afternoon, we headed up different mountains around camp, hopeful we would find snakes or lizards. Just as everyone was about to give up, Will Gray yelled that Hamish had found a snake, so we all went running to the other side of the mountain to get a look at it. By the time we got around the side of the mountain, Hamish had realized that it wasn’t a snake after all; only a lizard that Francois identified as a flat lizard.

The next morning, we went to check the traps then headed into the mountains, and up El Donio, looking for snakes and lizards. As we drove around, we saw a lot of game – Springbok, Eli, Rock Hyrax and Klipspringer – but spotted no snakes or lizards. After our climb up El Donio, and we ate lunch at the bottom of the mountains, we headed into the forest section, where we had found two horned adders before. We only found one snake on that hunt, but unfortunately lost it in some rocks, so we headed back to camp and started cooking the braai.

The next morning, we headed back to the Whale Back sector to continue taking down the old boundary fencing. It was a very hot day, so at one we stopped working and had a snack in the minimal shade the truck had, then carried on for an hour until it was too hot to carry on, so we headed back to camp. After we ate lunch, everyone sat in the octopus in a vegetated state due to the heat being almost unbearable. One by one, we headed for a cold shower, which turned out to be a very warm one as the sun had warmed the water in the tank to the point of it being a hot shower!

Camera traps, game catching and animal tracking!

This week started very exciting for us, because we’ve got the chance to be part of a “game capture”. For that we had to drive to the “Oas Stables”, where a very lovely guy called Mantie and his wife Pennie welcomed us. The phrase “My friend”, which Mantie used a lot, is still stuck in our heads today. It was an unbelievable experience for all of us to get so close to the wild animals like the Springboks. Another highlight was the last evening at Mantie’s. We’ve been in a real building for the first time since our arrival, which gave all of us a happy feeling, and the boys could play pool! It was a wonderful time over there.

On our way back we made it to the library, were we could finally get in touch with our loved ones back home, so this weekend was full of highlights.

The next exciting thing we’ve did was tracking for animals. For that we had to get up very early and drove with Red and Fisho to a waterpoint where Fisho led us on a track through the mountains and we could actually see some wild mountain zebras on top of one mountain. During one rest we decided to find Willie’s Rusk, a homage to our loved Rusks without which we (especially Will) couldn’t survive out here.

During our second week we also installed some Camera Traps to get to know the wildlife a bit better in the area we live in. It was a very exciting week and we look forward to what I’m sure will be similarly incredible weeks to come here in Namibia.

Welcome to the wilderness Sam Williams

Arriving at camp, a little later than planned, we were surprised at how nice the tents were and after a quick dinner and a tour of camp we went to sleep. Over the next couple of days we set up camera traps in different areas of the farm to try and catch some footage of some animals. We were lucky enough to spot an Black eagle’s nest so put up a camera trap close to the nest whilst on the look out for the parent eagles who were swooping above us. So hopefully in the next couple of weeks we will be able to send you some pictures of baby eagles!

Another highlight of the week was creating a vulture restaurant which involved dragging the carcass of a hartebeest out onto an open plain. We were all very excited for this. The weather has been a bit colder than expected and it has rained for the first time in three years, which Andrea and Ed have said is very lucky for the area and great for the wildlife.

We’ve had a jam packed week, including art activities with Andrea’s friend Tash from Cape Town as well as visiting the local primary school. The children were so cute and very excited to see us and we had a lovely afternoon playing sport, drawing and playing games. They were particularly interested in touching our hair, especially Monty’s hairy legs.

On Tuesday we visited the Fish River Canyon which is about 4 hours drive away and so set off at 5am with our hot water bottles and sleeping bags in the car. The views of the Canyon were incredible and on the drive there we saw zebra, ostrich and an aardwolf.

Our mission in Namibia

"Amazing hospitality and care"

These 4 weeks in the Namibian desert were definitely an unforgettable experience. We all learnt so much about not only wildlife conservation, but also the essential camping skills and how liberating life is without wifi!

The base-camp was very comfortable, clean, and homely with Red and Dre's amazing hospitality and care. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone of any age. I have no doubt that the landscape and tranquility cannot be found anywhere else.

- Sascha

"​A great unique experience"

A great unique experience, where you get to be immersed in the wilderness without the stress and distractions of the modern world. Many amazing adventures from a 3-day hike to downhill mountain biking and whitewater rafting.

It's also a great taster of what it is like to be in conservation and rewilding. All in all, great fun with two awesome hosts Red and Dre and I would really recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and memorable experience on their gap year or summer.

- Jack

"Thank you for the best month of my life and for all the memories I will cherish forever!​​"

I miss waking up at camp every morning surrounded by an incredibly special group of people, knowing that each day would start with a new adventure and end watching the insane Namibian sunset. Red and Dre are two of the most inspiring people and I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to learn so much from them, and help in a range of ways with their conservation work.

It is strange how quickly you adjust to bush life and nothing will compare once you leave. I cannot wait to visit Kum Kum in the future and see how much has changed.

- Freya

"Would 100% do it all again"

Such an incredible month. It really was an experience that I will never forget and this was all down to Andrea and Red. They made the trip so enjoyable and everything we did was sure to make an impact on the conservancy, which was such a nice thing to see and feel.

Base camp was a super cool place to stay for the month and certainly wasn't like anywhere I had stayed before. Unreal. Thank you so much to both of you and I wish you all the best xx

- Millie

"​I had the most incredible time in Namibia "

I had the most incredible time in Namibia even though it flew by. We achieved so much in a short month. The conservation activities were fun and fascinating to be a part of.

A particular favourite of mine was invasive tree demolition and obviously white water rafting. Having limited WiFi made it much easier to click with other people and I’ve made some great friends. Red and Andrea are truly inspiring people and I wish them the best of luck and hope to visit soon to see the progress.
