About this hunt

We treasure the principle of fair chase, so it is important for hunters to know that they should be fit, as walk-and-stalk is our way of hunting. Carefully constructed hides and blinds at strategic locations provide an outstanding opportunity for bow hunters to experience animals at close range, although we love to bow hunt on foot, too. Arrival and departure days are $167. Wingshooting - $235 per day.

Australia 10.0 of 10

Both my son and I had the most wonderfull experience hunting in Namibia with the experienced team at Aru. The accomodation was second to none, the food was excellent and the experienced guides were a pleasure to walk with. They found the best trophies for us to stalk and hunt. We would not hesitate to go over to Aru again and in fact it is our intention to get back there in 2017.

The accommodation, the food, and the company around the camp fire each night were all an experience to savour. We hunted the most picturesque country side that you could ever imagine. Nothing was to much trouble for our hosts.

There was nothing to dislike.

Very nice at the farms and good food. Hunting areas and the PH was good (Benjamin and steff). Nicest people at Veronica (Petri and his wife Maria and the rest of the staff there). I can certainly think of returning.

PH has bad radio so that took time to get in contact with the car all the time. No AC in the car that was taken us to the airport.

Two hunts in one!

Excellent hunt with the best food and living. To be able to hunt at two different camps in one week gives you a unique trip that you will never forget. Very professional!

No complains at all!

Happy with every aspect of the trip, I have no negative thoughts about Aru

Good experience for the whole group!

They took very good care of us. From our group of 4, the husbands were excited to hunt and the wives were... less excited. They took very good care of everyone and made sure they the whole group was having a good time. This was really important for a "mixed" group like this and, in the end, everyone had a great time. The hunting itself was great; they didn't pressure me into taking crappy shots, and we got to do a good amount of stalking instead of just driving around until we found something easy. As a relatively fit person, I have had past experiences where the guides were a little on the lazy side and just wanted to drive everywhere. This wasn't the case at ARU. They really tried to meet every hunter at his own level of fitness and ability. Some guests we met were not able to hike up mountains all day and accommodations were made for them. I, on the other hand, wanted to sweat and bleed in the ragged brush and the good people of ARU accommodated me with smiles.

I dunno... took a long time to get there I guess... but that was sort of part of the fun too. This was also a pretty "posh" experience. Fancy food, fancy beds, etc. If you're looking for something more primitive, I'm not sure what they have to offer.

5 star all the way.

Great experience. PH's were professional and accomodating. Lodges and accomodations, including hosts and personnel were first class. Animals were wild and plentiful. Habitat was well managed. My hunt took place in 2009 and I was well pleased with all aspects of the experience. Not only was the bowhunting great, the photograph opportunities were phenomenal.

It was all good.

First class operation

From the time you land in Windhoek, you are treated like royalty. Every aspect of their operation is fantastic: the people, the food, the accommodations, and of course the hunting. The variety between the two ranches also allows hunters to have two unique, but equally great experiences.

That I can't go back multiple times a year!

Very professional and friendly. We made good friends and shared three trips for hunting. Game was abundant and we have many trophies to enjoy.

Accommodations were first class. Hunting was excellent. Meals were wonderful. Took my wife, who never had hunted before, she had a great time learning about the culture and people.

We enjoyed every minute. Plan on returning and will not hunt with anyone but ARU
