N/a’an ku sê 's wishlist! Can you help?

We are always in need of donations to support our work with conserving Namibian wildlife and communities. Another way to support us is for volunteers and visitors to bring some of the needed items listed below.

Although we are hugely grateful for any donations, we prefer not to receive items by courier or by post because we often have to pay charges to customs. If you are keen to contribute items to our work, we would appreciate if you make a donation via the donations page and specify what project you would like to contribute to.
