Visit Africa’s biggest private nature reserve
The NamibRand Nature Reserve was born from a deep love for the Namibian ecosystem. German-Namibian businessman, J.A. Brückner, couldn’t stand the fact that farming took up most of the prime natural land in Namibia. So, he started buying farmland and converting it back to its natural state, to preserve the beauty and majesty he had come to revere.
One of his main stipulations, when he founded the reserve, was to keep the area as wild as possible. Thus, he strictly practices ‘soft tourism’ within his reserve, meaning that the number of guests in the luxury lodges and out in the park is limited. Not only does this reduce the human impact on the flora and fauna, but it also provides an exclusive wildlife experience for guests. The 172,000-hectare reserve offers animal sightings unlike any other.
