The main stakeholders of Conservancy Safaris are the Himba and Herero semi-nomadic pastoralists who live in the Puros, Orupembe, Sanitatas, Okonjombe and Marienfluss conservancies. From our conservancy hosts through to our administrative staff, we believe in the vision of making your footprint count.
Our team is highly experienced and includes local conservancy guides, who will provide a fascinating insight into life out there. Between us we will ensure that your experience is awesome in this place of wild beauty and breathtaking contrasts.
Community liaison and senior guide, Russell Vinjevold, - your interface with community and environment.
Russell firmly believes that a visit to Namibia is incomplete if the north-west has not been included. He is committed to sharing his expert knowledge and passion for the Kunene Region, its people and wildlife.
He spent 14 years in the formal conservation sector in Namibia, stationed in the Namib Desert and Etosha National Park. He has done research on wild dog and lions with Dr Philip Stander in Etosha.
For the last 14 years he has worked in the tourism sector, in South Africa and Namibia. He spent several years operating in the Kruger National Park and was one of the few non-Park’s Board staff qualified to and granted permission to conduct walking trails in the Kruger National Park.
