I went to both desert sites for a week each. Both are located in southern Namibia and I loved them so much! They were definitely a highlight of my stay in Namibia.

At the sites we did a lot of research on the human-carnivore conflict: we set camera traps, fed the cheetahs that are at the research sites, and even put out a cage trap and caught a leopard that was killing a farmer’s sheep. The leopard was relocated and released - it was amazing to be an active participant in mediating the human-wildlife conflict.

We were given the opportunity to go to Sossusvlei, where we got to climb to the top of the tallest sand dune in Namibia (hands down the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but so worth it!).

The research sites each had so much to offer, and I would recommend this program to anyone who is dedicated to helping animals, but is also ready to work hard and get their hands dirty!
