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.
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.
