Uakii Wilderness Safaris

Gobabis, Namibia

Local Namibian entrepreneur Peter-Hain Kazapua started Uakii Wilderness Safaris in 2004, but his journey in the Namibian tourism industry started long before this. Peter-Hain worked for one of the biggest tourism companies (Wilderness Safaris) in Southern Africa, where he gained invaluable experience and knowledge. He also was involved at the NACOBTA (Namibia Community Based Tourism Association), where he earned valuable insight into managing community-based tourism projects.

Uakii Wilderness Safaris operates a unique series of cultural experiences and community-based tours in the Omaheke region of Namibia.
