Sale of Biggest Privately-Owned Game Reserve Upsets Namibians

Mexican billionaire Alberto Baillères, who has been tipped to buy the Erindi Private Game Reserve, will not partner with any locals in the ownership of the reserve - and Namibians are having none of that - saying the nearly-completed sale to a foreign investor is a gross insult to the Namibian people.

The Erindi private game reserve has been on the market for five years for nearly N$2 billion (U.S.$141,2 million).
