Is the water drinkable at N/a’an ku sê sites?
It is safe to drink from the taps at the N/a’an ku sê Sanctuary, Neuras, Kanaan and Mangetti, however as an alternative, bottled water can be purchased from the bar when available or in town.
We do not recommend that you drink the water from the taps at the Lifeline Clinic as it has a high salt and calcium content. The water is from boreholes and has minimal bacterial/viral load – it is safe to brush your teeth with. The house and clinic have a reverse osmosis water filtration system and this is backed up by 25 litre water containers that are filled in Windhoek or at the Wildlife Sanctuary. We have also have up to 40,000 litres of rain water as backup for when the water goes off in the village (which is common in rainy season).
