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 2014. The...

... night with four, five or six armed box traps was therefore counted as four, five or six trap nights, respectively. During the study period box traps were active on 94 days with a total of 586 trap nights (Table 2.5.1b). When checking the traps, 88% of box traps were found open, 5% had captured an animal and 7% of the traps that had shut were empty (Figure 2.5.1b). ...

... selected the null model (M 0 ) for the survey. A relatively high capture probability of 0.4271 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 eight leopards (SE ± 0.4827, 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). ...
