Where to hunt Hartmanns Zebra

Hartmann's Zebra is a subspecies of Mountain Zebra. Hartmann’s zebra has the lighter stripes that are more duff in color than pure white, and so the zebra sometimes looks ‘golden’. Hartmann’s Zebra was once abundant all over south-western Africa, but during the civil war in Angola its populations in that country were nearly annihilated, and today good numbers of Hartmann’s Zebra exist only in Namibia and on some hunting operations in South Africa.

Price distribution

The trophy fees for a Hartmann’s Zebra in Namibia start at about $900, although one can find a cull hunt opportunity for as low as $650. In South Africa the shooting fees are in the $1,500-$2,000 range, sometimes more. Add to this the daily rates, and perhaps the price of a few other trophies (few hunters go to Africa to hunt just one species).

When to hunt Hartmanns Zebra?

Hunting in South Africa is open all year round, although in most areas December to January are a bit too hot for most hunters. In Namibia the hunting season runs from February to November. Most people prefer the southern hemisphere winter months (late May to October) for plains game hunts, and specifically for zebra try to focus on the end of the dry season.

Hunting methods All hunting methods (7)

Spot-and-stalk is the preferred method of hunting for Hartmann’s Zebra. These animals live in small groups, which can be reproducing (with one stallion and a number of mares and offspring) or bachelor. The animals are always on the alert, and if one senses something wrong, it immediately gives the alarm call and all group takes flight as one animal. The rugged terrain that the Hartmann’s Zebra prefer sometimes make the hunt resemble a true mountain hunt, with the hunters moving from ridge to ridge, occupying dominant heights and glassing down for animals, then approaching them. It’s often hard to cover this sort of ground in vehicles, so the hunter should be prepared to do a fair bit of walking. Bowhunters may choose to wait for the animal in a ground or elevated blind over a waterhole.

Why hunt Hartmanns Zebra? All hunts (157)

A study in the early 2000s indicated that the densities of Hartmann’s Zebra in Namibia were higher, and the numbers increased faster, in areas where there were opportunities for trophy hunters and other sustainable use. The study also suggested that one of the reasons was that in mostly rural areas the Zebras were viewed as competitors to domestic cattle, while in areas where the farmers benefited from outdoor recreation (including wildlife viewing, photo safaris and trophy hunting) the locals saw value in them. Even with broken terrain, Hartmann’s Zebra is not easy to approach, and stalking it in its typically rugged habitat is an exciting pursuit. Be sure to add a Hartmann’s Zebra to your plains game hunt.

Different game requires different tactics, each day being different from the next. So, with this thought in mind, we take each day as it comes. Some clients are fitter than others and prefer to walk more, some prefer to rest up in the comforts of our well equipped air conditioned 4x4 vehicles. Usually, plains game is hunted with the aid of our 4x4 vehicles. The game is spotted and stalked on foot from that point.

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.

Arrival and departure days are $167. Wingshooting - $235 per day.
