Mangetti National Park & Kavango West concessions are located in the north east of Namibia in the Kavango Region of Namibia between the towns of Grootfontein and Rundu. The Mangetti national Park is located one hour drive south of Rundu town.
This concessions habitat consists of prehistoric dunes that was formed millions of years ago when sand was blown into the region from the Namib Desert. Over millennium the sand settled and the huge dunes overgrew with huge trees and lush vegetation due to the subtropical climate and high rain fall. The Dune "Streets" in-between the dunes have more clay soil which allows more climax grass species to grow. Due to yearly fires these streets have turned into lush plains with high palatable grass and acacia trees which is excellent habitat for grass feeding antelope. The dunes are covered in raisin bush and other palatable trees for browsers.
Black Rhino and monster Cape Eland is doing very well in this habitat as well as monster Savannah Leopard.
The Leopard here have much longer bodies and is much taller on their feet than the Desert Leopard in the north west Kaokoland Region of Namibia. Monster Leopard inhabit this area with an abundance of steenbuck, southern bush duiker, impala, giuneafowl, francolin, blue wildebeest, burchell zebra, cape eland, and warthog.
