landscape rehabilitation

As one can imagine, land previously used for farming can carry the scars of those activities for a very long time. Rehabilitating some of these can take many years of dedicated effort. Overgrazing, for example, can require intensive rehabilitation efforts to remedy and to restore the integrity of the natural landscape such that it can sustain natural wildlife populations again.

Over 2500km of former farming fences have been removed, old unsightly water reservoirs were removed, tracks were closed and rehabilitated and truckloads od scrap have been removed form the reserve.

Wolwedans has made extensive efforts to rehabilitate the landscape around central namibRand over the duration of its existence and will continue to do so, including in partnership with destination stakeholders as the areas of habitat within the reserve expand.
