Your support makes it possible for us to keep on supporting the animals of Namibia

At N/a’an ku sê each and every animal in need of a loving home is welcomed with open arms. The dedication of Marlice and the staff ensures that they live a life most suited to their natural behavior, while at the same time receiving the constant care and dedication that they so deserve after their often tragic pasts.

Adopt an animal for just 1,550 Namibian dollars (NAD) per animal per year. In return for your sponsorship you will receive:

  • A personalised certificate with a photo of your adopted animal;
  • At least one update during the year including a photo of your adopted animal.

Below you will find a selection of our residents for adoption. We could not list all of them here as we have more than 100 animals at the Sanctuary! If you wish to adopt a specific animal which is not listed, please indicate its name on the payment page.

There are several different ways of payment to adopt an animal, namely:

  • PayPal
  • Electronic Bank Transfer (EFT)
  • Credit Card

Electronic bank transfer

We recommend Exchange 4 Free which allows you to transfer funds with no foreign bank transfer fees. You can pay into a bank in your home country and Exchange 4 Free will transfer the funds to Namibia.

  • Transfer Reason: select “Donations”
  • Invoice amount: enter 1,550 or 775 NAD
  • Payment Reference type: leave it as “Booking Reference”.
  • Payment Reference: enter “Adoption” and the name of the animal you would like to adopt.

For donors from South Africa, you can do a normal EFT directly to Namibia.

If you make a transfer, please e-mail with the details so that we can THANK YOU!

All of our chacma baboons arrived at N/a’an ku sê as orphans, in most cases their mums having been tragically shot by landowners. Our furry babies were lovingly hand-raised and we have a total of four habituated troops on the sanctuary. They unfortunately cannot be released, as they are too accustomed to human contact and would most likely be attacked and possibly killed by a wild group of baboons.

Sadly, in Namibia baboons are classified as pests due to their sometimes destructive behavior. This does result in them getting persecuted by the world’s most dangerous predator – mankind! But there is no animal more bouncy, bubbly and wonderfully adorable as a baboon.
