Happy Festive Season

Half of our team members and many AfriCat supporters take a break and will only be back in January.
So, here’s wishing everyone a safe journey – wherever you might be travelling this festive season . . .
Thank YOU for YOUR LOYAL Support! We could not do this without you!

You have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” (Jane Goodal)

okonjima and africat leopard christmas message

If you are still in need of Christmas gifts for friends and family why not consider a gift from AfriCat.

Annabel Pope, Wildlife and Travel Artist

Annabel recently donated her lovely drawing of a pair of cheetah’s to AfriCat following her visit to AfriCat in Namibia. That picture was sold at the Film Evening we held in October with AfriCat Patron Lorraine Kelly. Following the film evening Annabel is offering these two studies of elephant and Rhino with 10% of the proceeds coming to AfriCat. While not a large carnivore we all know how threatened and stunning both Rhino and Elephant are and how magical it is when you get the chance to watch them in their natural habitats.

If you are interested in either please contact Annabel direct at art@annabelpope.com and say you are an AfriCat Supporter!
These can be posted out to you in a tube.

Adopt-a-spot through AfriCat UK

At our new Carnivore Care and Information Centre at Okonjima home of the AfriCat Foundation in Namibia we have 2 huge cats painted on our wall. One is a CHEETAH and the other a LEOPARD. Their spots and rosettes are not coloured in yet – but as soon as you ADOPT-A-SPOT, the cheetah and leopard will slowly get their spots back!
