Abstract:This paper traces the history of conservation in Namibia with respect to Game Reserve No. 3, which was proclaimed on 22 March 1907. After several boundary and name changes - including Namib Desert Park and Naukluft Mountain Zebra Park - this largest formal conservation area in Namibia grew bigger and better over the years, now comprising 50,000 square km.
