The Lamprecht Family: Marina, Joof, Sr., Hanns-Louis, Michelle, Joof, Jr.
Hunters Namibia Safaris was founded by Joof and Marina Lamprecht in 1984, and has an international reputation as Namibia's premier safari company. Joof has been a registered Professional Hunter since 1979. The entire Lamprechts are involved the the business of running this renowned safari company to the highest possible standards.
NOTE! If you are a non-hunter who is planning to accompany your hunting spouse or friend, or if, as a prospective hunter, you have further questions, special needs or specific concerns regarding our accommodations, cuisine or other issues not covered here, we encourage you to visit Marina's Page.
The Lamprecht family's dedication to the wildlife, environment, the local community and their country is
evident in every aspect of Hunters Namibia Safaris. The family is involved with the Namibian Professional Hunting Association, the Hunters Namibia Private School, and is personally involved in interaction with the Namibian government on every level. For example, Marina Lamprecht was chosen by the NCCI (The Namibian Chamber of Commence and Industry), as one of three speakers from the private sector, to pay tribute to the retiring President of the Republic of Namibia, His Excellency Dr. Sam Nujoma, at a dinner in his honor held in Windhoek on the 18th February 2005.
Successive presidents of Safari Club International have chosen Hunters Namibia as their safari destination. Craig Boddington, the famous American hunting writer, has hunted with Joof Lamprecht on several occasions and makes numerous references to these safaris in his articles and books.
Hunters Namibia Safaris offers the ideal hunting destination for first time African hunters, experienced well-traveled hunters as well as non-hunting observers and family groups. Once you have experienced the genuine warmth of the Lamprechts' uniquely Namibian hospitality, as well as the excellent hunting, you are sure to want to return to this African paradise. More than 50% of Hunters Namibia clients are returning customers.
The hunting area is privately owned by the Lamprechts and covers an area of approximately 80 square miles of pristine wilderness area, populated only by free ranging game. Twenty six species of huntable game as well as an impressive variety of game birds (depending on the season) are available for trophy hunters and wing shooting enthusiasts. Many additional species can be viewed and photographed. A minimum of 500 game animals will be seen in one day while hunting.
Hunters Namibia Safaris also specializes in exclusive customized photographic, sight seeing and fishing Safaris throughout Namibia to suit your personal interests. If you are interested in birding, our country is rich in bird life, with most of the species listed in Sinclair’s Birds of Southern Africa in residence or migrating through the area. (Please see this extensive Birding List for some of them.) Destinations include, amongst others, the Etosha National Park, the Skeleton Coast, the Namib Desert, the Caprivi Strip and the historical sea-side village of Swakopmund. These excursions can be undertaken in comfortable air-conditioned Hunters Namibia Safaris vehicles or by charter flights as requested. A Lamprecht family member will be your guide and host for the duration of your trip.
As your Professional Hunter/s Joof 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. Larger groups can be handled on special request. The Hunters Namibia Safaris Lodge can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests. 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, open Toyota Land-Cruiser vehicles are used, but all stalking is done on foot. All vehicles are in excellent running condition and completely equipped with First Aid kits, tools, two way radios, refreshments and electric winches.
The Namibian trophy hunting season runs from the 1st February to the 30th November annually.
Trophy quality is consistently outstanding due to the Lamprecht's decision to aim for exclusivity rather than to commercialize. Hunters Namibia Safari's records show that 92% of trophies taken over the past 17 years are in the top half of the SCI Record Book. On average 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. Some clients have taken as many as 10 species in a 5 day period. Short safaris are, however, not recommended as much of the pleasure of hunting, as well as appreciation of the environment, is lost during a high pressure safari. A minimum period of 10 - 14 days is recommended.
