& Wildlife reserve

All Training Courses are taking place in AP4D's own private wildlife reserve in the Outjo district, Kunene region, in Northwest Namibia, 50 km southwest of the little town Kamanjab.

This land on the edge of the Namib desert, is unsuitable for commercial livestock farming due to repeated droughts, high predator populations, elephant migrations and the rocky mountainous terrain.

Out of these reasons it was developed into a nature and wildlife reserve, especially for the conservation of "desert elephants" and large predators living in this region.

Effective training under ideal outer conditions

The wildlife reserve and training area is characterized by a large variety of fascinating landscapes: mountain ranges of up to 1600 meters above sea level, large rocky areas, bush and tree savanna, grasslands and gallery forests along large, dry river beds.

In addition to numerous smaller animal species, it houses a variety of small and large antelope species, the rare mountain zebra, warthog and giraffe.
Large predators are leopards, cheetahs, lynxes, brown and spotted hyenas, and migrating lions.
Desert elephants often live and migrate through our wildlife sanctuary.

Training areas for the best possible training success

This land is ideal for the AP4D training courses as it can guarantee best possible training and living conditions in the wilderness:

1. It is located in secluded, untamed African wilderness

2. It is characterized by fascinating and extremely diverse landscapes

3. It is home to a variety of wildlife species

4. It is home to big game species such as elephants, leopards and lions

5. It houses a variety of fascinating geological and archaeological sites

6. It faces some poaching problems as well as human-wildlife conflicts in the neighbourhood, especially with elephants and large predators (lions, leopards, hyaenas, cheetahs), thus offering students the opportunity to get to know these problems and their solutions first hand.

Excellent accommodation at tourism level

In addition to these large and fully professional training areas and training environments, AP4D makes use of an own lodge located there for all course participants. Here students can enjoy a lodge designed for upscale tourism. It can accommodate up to 16 students in stylish en-suite double rooms. A large swimming pool, cell phone reception, solar power, good catering and the private atmosphere enhance the comfort for the students and thereby supports the best possible training success.

Acomodation is mostly in the lodge, to quickly recover from the strain of the hard training. But for training reasons there are always some nights to spend in tented bush camps, or under even more simple conditions deep in the bush.
