Four distinct habitats
are found on the Reserve: dunes and sandy plains,
inselbergs and mountains,
gravel plains, and sand
and gravel plains interface.
Research conducted on
NamibRand aims to directly
benefit management of the
Reserve and to contribute
to the national scientific
knowledge base.
To ensure the long-term,
sustainable existence of the
Reserve, substantial funds
are needed which cannot be
generated from private means.
The NamibRand Nature Reserve, located in southern Namibia, is a private nature reserve established to help protect and conserve the unique ecology and wildlife of the south-west Namib Desert. Conserving the pro-Namib, the area along the eastern edge of the Namib Desert, is critically important in order to facilitate seasonal migratory wildlife routes and to protect biodiversity. It is probably the largest private nature reserve in Southern Africa, extending over an area of 202,200 ha. The Reserve shares a 100km border with the Namib-Naukluft National Park in the west and is bordered in the east by the imposing Nubib Mountains. Virtually all facets of the Namib Desert are represented on the Reserve - sand and gravel plains and stretches of savanna alternate with mountain ranges and vegetated dune belts. read more
