Abstract This research project started in 2012 and was based on Okambara Elephant Lodge, a game farm located 85 km south of Windhoek’s international airport, in the Khomas region of central Namibia. Okambara is game-fenced and comprises an area of 150 km2. This report covers the survey work conducted during the period of August–November 2013. The...

... night with four armed box traps was therefore counted as four trap nights. During the study period box traps were active on 116 days with a total of 421 trap nights (Table 2.5.1b). When checking the traps, 86% of box traps were found open, 9% had captured an animal and 5% of the traps that had shut were empty ( Figure 2.5.1b). ...

... MCP of L055 was 142.43 km²; Kernel 95 covered 111.06 km² and Kernel 90 entailed 103.27 km². The size of the core area of the home range of L055 was 40.74 km² (see Table 2.5.2). ...

... two occasions, spotted hyaenas were recorded as well. In addition, pictures of cheetahs were taken by four cameras; five different individuals could be identified based on their individual fur pattern (see Table 2.5.4b). Events of pictures taken of other predators within the study period are listed in Table 2.5.4c. ...

... selected the null model (M 0 ) for the survey. A relatively high capture probability of 0.4207 was recorded (the probability that a leopard in the sampled area is photographed on a single sampling occasion) (Table 2.5.4d).The sample population was estimated to be seven leopards (SE ± 0.2138, 95% CI 6-6). When computing the 95% confidence interval, CAPTURE converts the values to the nearest integer, rather than printing decimals ( Jackson et al. 2006). ...
