Location: 6 Hours’ drive north-east of Windhoek
Our home area encompasses 44 500 acres of own private land, plus a further 50 000 acres of neighboring hunting concessions. It is predominantly flat country with mostly sandy soils and a dense to open stand of bush and trees.
This is prime eland territory but altogether 14 different species of plains game can be hunted here: Giraffe, eland, kudu, waterbuck, blue wildebeest, Burchell’s zebra, oryx/gemsbok, red hartebeest, black wildebeest, impala, blesbok, springbok, warthog, steenbok and duiker. Neighboring areas also add Damara dik-dik and klipspringer to this list.
Hunting is done the traditional way by locating fresh tracks and following up on foot. Despite adhering to this pure and ethical approach, the success rate in the area is very high thanks to good numbers of animals.
Client accommodation is in a permanent safari camp situated centrally in the hunting area. It can accommodate six guests in three chalets, each with an en-suite bathroom. Adjoining these is a comfortable lounge and dining area, as well as a traditional open-sky campfire where the stories of the day’s hunt can be recounted over ice-cold sundowners.
The camp has electricity, as well as telephone-, cellphone- and wi-fi services. Meals are prepared by our full-time kitchen staff, with barbequed steaks from hunters’ own kills always a firm favorite.
In this area we also offer bowhunting. Bowhunters can choose to shoot from fixed- (thatched pits) or portable hides, or walk and stalk on foot (longer shots in the order of 40 yards).
Other attractions within 2 hours’ drive:
- Bushmanland, where the San people still live a largely traditional lifestyle. Excursions can be arranged to go on a field trip with them while they gather bush food and medicines, or hunt with their self-made bows and poisoned arrows. Attending a performance of their traditional dances also gives a rare glimpse into the lives of one of Africa’s most fascinating peoples.
- Etosha, Namibia’s premier national park, is larger than Holland in area. It is home to four of the Big Five (no buffalo) and almost all species of indigenous game. “Etosha” means place of emptiness, a name derived from the vast white pan at its core.
- The Okavango river, which feeds the world famous Okavango swamps in neighboring Botswana, offers excellent fishing for tigerfish and other species.
- The Hoba meteorite, a solid mass of iron and nickel weighing more than 60 metric tons, is the largest known meteorite to have struck earth.
