4Cs Projects at Andersson's Camp

Andersson’s Camp is situated in Ongava Game Reserve, which was formed in 1991, when shareholders of Ongava converted four unproductive cattle ranches into a highly productive 30 000-hectare private game reserve that is now a haven to large concentrations of wildlife.


Ongava Game Reserve Reintroduction Project

Most general game has been reintroduced, including springbok, gemsbok (oryx), Hartmann's mountain zebra, red hartebeest, southern giraffe, eland, Damara dik-dik, and the largest population of the endemic black-faced impala (listed as Endangered) outside of Etosha.

White and Black Rhino Project

Another successful reintroduction project is the white and black rhino project – where Ongava holds one of the largest rhino custodianships for the Namibian government.

Ongava Research Centre (ORC)

ORC was established in 2006 in recognition of the fact that accurate and up-to-date information and research is crucial for the optimal management of the ecosystems that make up the reserve. The Centre is involved in outstanding conservation efforts, specifically regarding the rare black rhino and endemic black-faced impala.

Black-faced Impala Research

After fantastic initial growth, the population of endemic black-faced impala (Apyceros melampus petersi) at Ongava has been stable at around 300 animals. This is the largest ‘pure’ population outside Etosha and is thought to represent around 10% of the global population of the subspecies.

Ongava Environmental Team

Closed ecosystems like Ongava have boundaries that impose artificial limits on the available resources. To this end, a dedicated environmental team manage the day-to-day running of the reserve, ensuring its long-term biological diversity and sustainability.
