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.

The Challenge
To break the vicious cycle within farming communities, whereby wildlife is persecuted and destroyed as the first option to solving Human Wildlife Conflict. To encourage, through 'Education', a change of mind-set, from outdated, less successful farming methods, to innovative, sustainable livestock management, which will allow for tolerance and co-existence with so called 'conflict' wildlife such as Lion and Elephant.

Where we are based...


Learn more about our projects and ways in which you can help us make a difference for the carnivores of Namibia. AfriCat undertakes the responsibility of various projects ranging from environmental education, research, rehabilitation as well as community support and human wildlife conflict mitigation…


In this day and age, all great causes need great support… it is a fact that funds are needed to achieve goals. AfriCat is no different! Donations are what keep our programmes, our community outreach and research initiatives going, especially those which are of an ‘ongoing’ nature.


We are always thinking of new ways to raise funds for our projects. Keep an eye out for updates on this page and latest fundraiser ideas where you could help make a difference and get involved.
