Tourism can often be damaging to exotic environments. However, if it wasn’t for generous financial support by visitors a lot of orphaned animals, endangered species would be dead before long. Wild creatures often shot by ruthless poachers or ran over by cars, leaving their babies behind all alone. It is facilities like N/a’an ku sê that help put those famished, sick or seriously injured animals in sanctuaries – their only chance of survival.
N/a’an ku sê (Naankuse) Lodge is located on a dolomite hill, 45 km away from the Windhoek airport. The little hotel was founded in 2007. It consists of 6 luxurious, individual cottages that share the African toughness and the modern extravagant style. The facility is completely eco-friendly. The owners did a great job with the original, rustic details, providing their visitors during their stay in Namibia with full privacy and sense of natural beauty and comfort in harmony with the surroundings.
But there’s more to N/a’an ku sê than just comfortable cottages that form part of the Namibian savanna. The facility is mostly dedicated to the protection and recovery of unlucky animals thus providing the people of San Bushman with an opportunity to develop their professional skills. Most of the profits from tourism are donated to charity projects and the activity of the Naankuse Foundation. The facility is under the patronage of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who has visited N/a’an ku sê multiple times entered into a permanent collaboration with the sanctuary and actively support their long-term projects.
The award-winning N/a’an ku sê is truly an invaluable institution. It’s a dream come true for those looking for close relations with protected animal species. The travelers, during their luxurious stay among wild nature, have a chance to support different charities for African animals, save them from death or even help some of them leave the facility and get their freedom back.
