ORKCA Namibia

The Orange River-Karoo Conservation Area (ORKCA) works to protect, restore and rewild the Orange-River Karoo landscape in Namibia.

ORKCA currently works across an area of 160,000 hectares hosting only a fragment of the biodiversity that was once endemic to the area. Populations of oryx, springbok, eland, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, greater kudu and red hartebeest are found throughout the reserve, and in western ORKCA (Sandfontein), Angolan giraffe are thriving. Leopard, brown hyena, caracal, African wildcat, aardwolf, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox and cape fox make up the predators, but exist in low densities.

Their vision is to restore the abundance and resilience of the Karoo ecosystem and create a vast, contiguous conservation area that host all the iconic wildlife species that were once present in this region, allowing historic wildlife migratory patterns to re-emerge.
