Besides being one of the most affordable countries to hunt in all of Africa, Namibia hunting safaris are popular for several other reasons. It’s home to some of the most sought-after game species, including the African elephant, leopard, and a wide variety of plains game species. Namibia also offers unique hunting opportunities for desert-adapted species such as the Hartmann’s mountain zebra and the oryx. Finally, Namibia has a well-managed and sustainable hunting industry that ensures the conservation of the country’s wildlife.
Hunting Areas in Namibia
The Caprivi Strip, in the northeast of the country, is a popular destination for big game hunters. The region is home to some of the country’s most abundant wildlife populations, including elephants, lions, and hippos. The Kalahari Desert, in the south of the country, is another popular hunting destination, offering the chance to hunt desert-adapted species such as the oryx and springbok.
Namibia Offers Free Range, Fair Chase Hunting
Almost all of the hunting in Namibia is low fence, so if you’re keen on a free range plains game hunting alternative to South Africa, Namibia might be for you. The areas we hunt have plentiful, native plains game animals and leopards in big numbers and excellent trophy quality. These are not “put and take” hunts. All of the game animals are free ranging and born on the farm. The hunting is well managed and most of the animals are gold medal trophies.

Hunting of other species can be arranged on request, and if you wish to hunt for species that are non-indigenous to Namibia, there is a large high fence concession that you can hunt as well. If you’re a bird hunter, Namibia is teeming with upland game birds such as doves, pigeons, guinea fowl and francolin. The waterfowl hunting is good as well.
The typical terrain has many mountains and big flat open areas between them. You can expect to take a few long shots when you are a rifle hunter, but we are also set up for bowhunters with blinds at water holes. For those that want to do same walking and stalking with the bow that will also be possible, but will definitely be a challenge.
