Everybody knows that with success and prosperity comes responsibility and, at Abenteuer Afrika Safari, we care about our people and our environment.
The Dongina Risser Gymnastics Foundation
The Dongina Risser Gymnastics Foundation, was founded by Dogina Risser, who has spent most of her adult life coaching and judging gymnastics on all levels. Now ready to retire from coaching, she would like to make a lasting contribution to the sport she loves and provide future generations, of all economic backgrounds, with the best training facility in the country.
The DRGF has created the "Adopt a Gymnast" program, whereby donors sponsor an underprivileged child and cover not only the cost of gymnastics training, but also school fees, to insure these children are getting a well rounded education in sport and in school.
"Adoptive parents" undertake to pay for the child's school and gymnastics fees on an annual basis; (no legal adoption of the child or other responsibilities are incurred). The sponsor is sent regular progress reports on both the child's school and gymnastics performance. Surplus funds donated for the child are used to pay for the competition leotard and tracksuit, as well as travel expenses to competitions within Namibia's borders. The program does not yet cater for international travel.
Part of the DGRF programme, our Tennis Academy already boasts excellent talent!

People, wildlife and organisations are all part of the greater community to which we, Abenteuer Afrika Safari, belong. In creating journeys for people who are attracted by Namibia's pristine natural beauty and cultural wealth, we also support and thank the tireless efforts of the people who protect these assets. Appropriately, Abenteuer Afrika Safaris has chosen to celebrate and contribute to the TOSCO community that cares for Namibia's wild places in the hope that we can share Namibia's spectacular natural beauty now and in the future.
Top Kids Kindergarten
After a lavish banquet in the desert for 300 delegates, there is often an oversupply of food. We take care to preserve the excess so that the orphaned and destitute children at Top Kids Kindergarten in Swakopmund can enjoy a hearty and nutritious meal as often as possible.
Your donations of cash or in kind will be used to provide the school with essential facilities. Contact us now to find out how you can help.
Elephant-Human Relations Aid
The desert-adapted elephants that roam freely in Damaraland and Kaokoland are indeed a national treasure. Attracting hundreds of tourists, photographers and conservationists every year, not only are they an integral part of the unique ecosystem they are also worth a pretty packet in foreign income.
But for the people living Damaraland and Kaokoland, the elephants are livelihood-wreckers and a deadly hazard. The Elephant-Human Relations Aid (EHRA) is an non-profit volunteer organisation that works with the local communities to protect them and their water sources from destruction by the elephants while taking care not to deprive the elephants of their much-needed share.
Contact us now to find out how you can join the programme as a volunteer or benefactor and protect the Namibian people by helping them live in harmony with the elephants.
