Morning Feeding Tour
Enter our animal kingdom
This exciting tour takes you to our incredible carnivores including lions, cheetahs, African wild dogs, caracals and leopards. Watch them being fed by our experienced guides and listen to their stories. The scenic route lends the opportunity of spotting some free-roaming reserve animals. It's the perfect start to your day.
Sunset is the opening music of the night
Take a leisurely drive to a prime sundowner spot on our beautiful reserve. Namibian sunsets, with a refreshing drink in hand, are ALMOST unbeatable! Yes, the roar of our lions may add to the experience - making it a never-to-be-forgotten moment.
A purr-fect life-changing experience
Habituated cheetahs have lost their fear of humans - a fear that is crucial in elevating their survival chances in the wild. For this reason, some of the magnificent spotted sprinters at Harnas need to remain in captivity, having come to the sanctuary from various conflict situations at young ages. At Harnas we fully nurture and encourage their natural behaviour, captivity resembling the life of their wild counterparts as closely as possible. Enjoy time with our habituated big cats, in the hands of an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Simply not to be missed! Adults only.
The charm of the chacma
Did you know that chacma baboons are officially classed as pests in Namibia? As a result, these intelligent animals are often persecuted, resulting in many orphaned young baboons. At Harnas we take care of any and all wildlife deserving a second chance. Join our young baboons on a wonderful walk. Their antics and humour will definitely make your day (and your stay)! Adults only.
