Ancient Memories: Twyfelfontein and Petrified Forest
Discover petrified trees and the process which changed them, then explore early stone age art.
Namibia is a country of contrasts: from vast sweeping sand dunes to the fogs of the Atlantic Ocean; from herds of desert elephant to penguin colonies. The temperature dramatically varies from extremely hot in Namibian summer months to near freezing at night.
The Big Cat Kraal project looks at the problems which are caused when human and big cat territories clash. Namibian communities rely on their cattle for food, but big cats raid and kill the livestock from farms. In response, the farmers will kill the big cats.
To create sustainability, the community need help with the construction of Kraal: enclosures for their livestock which protect from big cat raids. This project focuses on kraal construction and groups work with the community to help build these. This project also allows for fantastic cultural exchange opportunities with the community and groups can learn about the challenges of living in rural Africa.
