Did You Know?

  • Erindi has over 20 000 species of different animals including Hippos, Crocodiles, Giraffes, Rhinos, African Wild Dog, Brown Hyena, Lions and Elephants
  • The Game Reserve is set on an area of 79,000 ha of privately owned land
  • Over the last four years Erindi has successfully transformed itself into a unique, best-practice ecotourism and conservation venture – constantly implementing and monitoring programmes across all aspects of the land rehabilitation process. The conservation specialists at Erindi are deeply rooted in the reserve, and their intimate knowledge of the unspoilt, game-rich bush will add to your unique African experience
  • Erindi now boasts possibly the largest protected population of Black Rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) in Namibia
  • During the early 19th century, the African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) was recorded to be widespread in the area, but the last protected pack disappeared from Etosha in 1970. Then Erindi embarked on a mammoth task to reintroduce this highly endangered carnivore back into the region, and today the painted dogs of Africa roam free and protected within the reserve
  • Lions (Panthera leo) that were targeted as problem animals outside of protected areas were captured by the Erindi team and given a safe home within the reserve
  • A natural population of the rare brown hyena (Hyeana brunnea) resides in the area and together with good numbers of cheetah (Acinonyx jubatis) and leopard (Panthera pardus) gives Erindi a predator diversity that matches few other wildlife destinations
  • As part of the Global Leopard Project, Erindi has embarked on a conservation research project to aid in the better understanding of this phenomenal creature to help reduce human/predator conflict and find methods to ensure that man and leopard benefit each other long-term – and that other creatures reap the rewards of the relationship
  • A fabulous buffet-style dinner is served around sunset as guests return from their late afternoon safari
