THE N/A’AN KU SÊ FOUN­DA­TION

Road Trip - - CHEETAH IN THE BACKSEAT -

The foun­da­tion was founded by Mar­lice van Vu­uren and her hus­band, Dr Rudie van Vu­uren, in 2006. At the sanc­tu­ary, about 40 km from Wind­hoek, or­phaned an­i­mals are raised in an en­vi­ron­ment that en­cour­ages their in­stinc­tive be­hav­iours, aim­ing to rein­tro­duce them to their nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ments where pos­si­ble. N/a’an ku sê’s con­flict mit­i­ga­tion re­search has also pre­vented the per­se­cu­tion of count­less fe­lines and is fur­ther abet­ting the plight of Namibia’s threat­ened wildlife species. The foun­da­tion also runs the N/a’an ku sê Life­line Clinic at Epukiro in eastern Namibia, the Shiloh Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary, the Neuras Wine & Wildlife Es­tate, the Kanaan N/a’an ku sê Desert Re­treat and the Utopia Bou­tique & Taste Academy.
