A Luxurious Wildlife Experience
The 9800 ha reserve is home to over 860 animals, including the White Rhino, Oryx, Giraffe, Sable, Roans, Kudu, Nyala, Eland, Impala, Springbuck, Golden & Blue Wildebeest and so much more! The Ugab river bed forest’s ancient trees, providing an abundance of shade and food, creating the perfect habitat to attract a diverse number of species. Even free-roaming elephants cross over the farm and are occasionally spotted in the area.
Unique to Ugab’s wildlife are 3 white rhinos, named Fritz, Diana & Julia that roam near the main premises, and can be seen from the outdoor lounging area. An encounter with Elsa, a tamed eland cow, is a favourite among the visitors who can feed her during the game drive.
The breath-taking mountainous region of Damaraland is home to an assortment of desert-adapted wildlife such as elephant, rhino, zebra and lion, which eke out an existence in this near-barren landscape. A not-to-be-missed attraction is the picturesque Brandberg, Namibia’s highest mountain, which is home to thousands of ancient rock paintings – most notably the White Lady. The rocky outcrops of Twyfelfontein feature exceptional Bushmen engravings, which are considered to be some of the best-preserved etchings on the continent. Visit the Petrified Forest, which dates back millions of years and offers a haunting landscape of gigantic fossilized trees.
