Namibia is a dry country, with about 2 million inhabitants only. Namibia has the famous Namib Desert along its Westcoast, in the East, bordering to Botswana there is the Kalahari Desert, arid savanna, where our study site is situated. The North of Namibia has fertile ground for agriculture, border to Angola and Namibias Caprivi Strip belongs to its wildest area bordering to the Okavango Delta. The South of Namibia is lonely and dry; the Fishriver Canyon is representative for the beauty of the southern landscape.

Upon your arrival in Namibia, you will be picked up from your accomodation in Windhoek, the capital, or directly from the international airport, organised by us. 160km one-way gravel road takes us about 2.5 hours to the reserve, Kuzikus.
