Namibia harbours a wealth of extraordinary animals
From the regal oryx to the critically endangered hook lipped rhinoceros, Namibia remains a thriving ecosystem of majestic creatures. Boasting the highest density of cheetahs in the world, Namibia is a rare place where wildlife can be seen amidst your day-to-day routine. However, due to the human-wildlife conflict widespread across the country, it is vital that we strive to protect these vulnerable animals.
This glossary presents a non-exhaustive list of some of the most iconic species, as well as lesser-known ones that you can see at our sites and in Namibia in general. The species present on the Naankuse sites are identified by our logo.
