Hunters Namibia Safaris’ trophy quality is consistently outstanding due to our exclusivity and limited number of hunting clients hosted annually. Our records show that 92% of trophies taken over the past 30 years qualify for the top half of the SCI Record Book, although not all hunters chose to register them. Due to the huge quantity as well as the excellent quality of game on our land, (80 square miles) you can hunt truly selectively. On average, our hunting clients take one trophy per day, but no limit is placed on the number of species that you may take during a specific safari period.
A minimum period of 7 full hunting days is required, however, 10 days is recommended. Cheetah, Leopard and Sable hunts necessitate a 14-day safari. We do not suggest short safaris as much of the pleasure of hunting, as well as appreciation of the environment, is lost during a high-pressure safari.
One of our qualified and experienced Namibian Professional Hunters will accompany you on your hunt at all times, and may do so with a maximum of two hunting clients per P.H. at a time. No more than 30 hunting clients are accepted per season. Your booking will reserve you and your party the exclusive use of the facilities with no other groups in camp.
While hunting, classic, open Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles are used, but all stalking is done on foot – we focus absolutely on fair chase, ethical hunting. All vehicles are in excellent running condition and completely equipped with First Aid kits, tools, two way radios, refreshments and electric winches. Our professional team of skinners does outstanding field preparation of the trophies in order to prepare them for delivery to a local freight agent or taxidermist. All the meat from the hunt is utiliised.
The Namibian trophy-hunting season runs from the 1st of February to the 30th of November annually.

Your Safari is confirmed only when Hunters Namibia Safaris receives a signed Safari Contract, along with a deposit of 50% of the daily fees for designated length of the Safari. The balance of the daily fees is payable 6 months prior to the commencement of your Safari. The trophy fees and the fees for excluded services (i.e. transportation, alcoholic beverages etc.) are payable on completion of the Safari, before departure. All payments are to be made in U.S. dollars unless otherwise arranged.
We recommend dark green clothing in medium or heavy cotton. Please bring warm clothing if your safari falls in the period June to August. The remainder of the year you can hunt in shorts and short-sleeved shirts, but you will still require a warm jacket for early morning and evenings. Three sets of clothing will be sufficient for your safari. Rubber soled boots in a dark brown colour, which have been “broken in” before your arrival, are recommended. A pair of comfortable house shoes for the evenings will come in handy. A broad rimmed olive green safari hat is a must. Be sure to bring a bathing suit during the summer months.
Do not forget your camera, as well as ample SD cards, and batteries. A good pair of 8 X 40 binoculars is essential.
As stipulated in the Namibian hunting Legislation, smallest calibre allowed on planes game hunts is 7mm, and the minimum muzzle energy of 1350 Joule for Springbuck, Ducker etc., 2700 Joule for Red Hartebeest, Wildebeest Greater Kudu, Gemsbuck, Cape Eland etc., and 5400 Joule for Buffalo, Elephant, Rhino etc.. We strongly recommend a calibre of .300 magnum or larger, fitted with a 6X40 scope, for plains game. This is, however, a personal matter and we suggest that you use whatever rifle (of adequate calibre/muzzle energy) you are most familiar and comfortable with. We recommend the heaviest weight of ammo for your calibre in Nosler partition. If you are a keen wing-shooter, bring your favourite shotgun and approximately 50 shells in #7’s. The Namibian authorities do not place any restrictions on the temporary importation of hunting rifles. A maximum of 100 rounds per weapon may be imported. You will receive a form to fill out on your arrival and the permit will be issued at the airport – the process is uncomplicated.

Please Note: No pistols, revolvers, automatic or semi-automatic weapons may be imported into Namibia for hunting purposes. Please also note that ammunition may not be transported in your rifle case. As you may be in transit through other countries it is important to note that some laws require ammunition to be transported in a lockable metal container. This is not a requirement in Namibia.
