Hunt

Hunt (beginning of February - end of November)

You will be welcomed on arrival at the airport, by Pieter and escorted to the hunting territory. Shortly after arrival in the territory, you will visit the shooting range to prepare and check all equipment for the hunt.

Breakfast is usually before sunrise, where after you will go hunting with your PH, tracker and driver. You will be driving spotting game and do some stalks on animals that you have on your wish list. When the animals start hanging around in the shade during the hotter time of the day, you will be heading back to the camp. Where you will enjoy a good lunch and have some time off from the normal hunting activities. In the after noon you will be heading out into the bush until sunset. During your drive back to camp it will be dark, which means temperatures drop and it could really become cold.

Then, to end of a hard days work, the nights are spent around the campfire with tales of trips gone by and eager anticipation of what tomorrow will bring
After the hunt it is possible to visit Windhoek for some shopping and then the journey home starts.
 


Guns


Handguns, together with automatic and semi-automatic guns are not allowed. Suitable calibers for all plains game are from 7mm Magnum to 375 H+H. Nature Conservation Regulations only allow soft nose ammunition, reliable bonded soft nose ammunition is recommended. It is wise not to bring less than 40 rounds (maximum of 80 rounds per caliber is allowed) in case rifles need re-sighting. Be certain your rifle is sighted in to strike zero at 200 yards.
In Namibia bringing guns in and out it’s easy. One sheet of paper, quick serial number inspection and you are in. Same on the way out.
