Description

Experience the magnificence of Africa as you help conserve the Damaraland Elephant population by alleviating human-elephant conflict in water-scarce Namibia. Your hard work will be well worth it in an African adventure you will never forget.

This unique volunteer program plays an important role in fighting the eradication of the Damaraland Desert Elephant population and works towards resolving the human-elephant conflict over resources by implementing practical and sustainable measures to enable humans and elephants to live in harmony.

Water is a precious commodity in the Namib Desert - both for elephants and humans. The elephants of Damaraland, in their search for water, frequently damage or destroy community water points, leaving small subsistence communities and farmers without access to fresh water.

With a lack of knowledge about elephant behavior, communities live in fear of the elephants, unable to safeguard themselves or their water from the animals. The resulting 'water war' has proven deadly for the elephants.
