The AfriCat Foundation

Founded in 1991, The AfriCat Foundation is committed to the long-term conservation and survival of Namibia’s Large Carnivores in their natural habitat

Our mission is to make a significant contribution to Conservation Through Education.

Bridging Letter

AfriCat North, must now grow further and become self-sustaining, generating funds from its own activities to support lion conservation and the communities living within the Kunene’s lion range.

In order to do this, AfriCat North must now boldly set out with renewed energy and commitment as the Namibian Lion Trust, with our slogan FOR LIONS, FOR LIFE and FOR OUR FUTURE, dedicated to Panthera leo.

The Namibian Lion Trust will embark on its chosen path with imagination, creativity and determination for it is without question, essential that AfriCat North’s work must continue.

There will always be a challenge but this stand-alone position will have a number of long-term benefits, not least to free up the organisation from its close association with the highly successful, revenue-generating tourist business that is Okonjima, ‘Home of the AfriCat Foundation’.

The Namibia Lion Trust needs your help now, more than ever. Many of you have been there for the African lion in the past, but the future is here, today. None of us wish to have the “King of the Jungle” condemned to history.

The time to strike is now… Help us ‘Protect our Pride
