About hunting in Africa
For the hunter seeking a wide variety of game animals, beautiful country, century-old hunting traditions, and the spice of danger, hunting in Africa is an experience unmatched anywhere on Earth. Whether you choose to hunt plains game in southern Africa or take on Cape buffalo and elephant in the wilds of East Africa, a hunt on the African continent will create memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. More than a dozen countries in Africa offer hunting in some form. The countries in southern Africa, especially South Africa, Namibia, and Zimbabwe, are visited by the largest numbers of hunters. Hunting in these countries is accessible and affordable and provides an outstanding experience, especially for the first-timer. East Africa, especially Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Mozambique, holds large wilderness areas and good numbers of dangerous-game animals such as lions, buffalo, leopards, and elephants. Safaris in this region are true to the tradition of the luxury tented safaris of the mid-twentieth century. Safaris in western and central Africa appeal to experienced African hunters in search of very challenging game such as bongo and giant eland. Most hunting in Africa is conducted “safari-style,” where hunters drive around the hunting area in open-topped vehicles searching for game or tracks of game. When game is sighted, hunters stalk on foot, or when fresh tracks are spotted, hunters disembark to follow on foot, sometimes for many hours. There are a few exceptions, such as leopard hunting, which is usually conducted from a blind over bait. With such a wide variety of terrain, countries, and game animals to choose from, hunting in Africa holds something for everyone.

Kaokoveld Unfenced Wilderness Safari Namibia
The SILENCE is deafening. As you scan the vast plains in front of you, with the huge mountains forming the periphery, watching a few zebra and oryx dotting the plains below, you know that you have at last found one of the LAST and TRUE WILDERNESS hunting concessions in Africa to hunt. EXCEPTIONAL SPRINGBOK (16"+) and ORYX (40"+) can be expected. This hunt will appeal to a selective few hunters that seeks an ADVENTUROUS and TRUE WILDERNESS hunt without fences as well as the boutique hunter that searches for exceptionally big springbok and oryx. This is also the ONLY CONCESSION in Namibia where the HARTMANN MOUNTAIN ZEBRA can be hunted in the HARTMANN VALLEY. Hunters have the opportunity to hunt more than 12 species of desert adapted game in our vast, remote and unfenced 880 000 acres Kaokoland wilderness concession. The hunt demands a reasonable amount of fitness, as all hunting is done on foot, covering quite huge distances on a daily basis. Saying this we always adapt our hunting style to fit/suite our hunters. Hunters can also expect to SLEEP OUT under most brilliant skies WITHOUT A TENT in search of their quarry. Each hunting party have the entire concession to themselves as we never mix clients. We also operates with a small staff compliment and do all our hunts personally. Observers are very welcome.
