Welcome to N/a'an ku sê Foundation

Dr Rudie and Marlice van Vuuren, with long time friends Chris Heunis and Jan Verburg, started the award-winning N/a’an ku sê Foundation in 2006 to protect and improve the lives of the people and wildlife of Namibia.

Our vision is an Africa where humans and wildlife can live and thrive together. Our mission is to conserve the land, cultures and wildlife of Namibia and rescue species threatened by an ever-shrinking habitat.

African Wildlife

We run a Wildlife Sanctuary and Carnivore Conservation Research project to protect and conserve Namibia's vulnerable wildlife.


San Bushman Community

Our Clever Cubs School and Lifeline Clinic provide free education and healthcare to the marginalised San community.


We've recently launched the N/a’an ku sê Lifeline Fund to raise funds so that people like Jostaphine can receive appropriate, emergency medical treatment in future. Find out more about the Lifeline Fund and Jostaphine here.

Our Charity

As a charity we are solely reliant on generous donations, ecotourism and the time of volunteers to continue our vital work to help the people and animals of Namibia.


We do not receive any government funding and are thankful to individuals, companies, trusts and foundations across the world who support our projects.
