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.

"Build Your Own" Safari 1x1 Namibia
The game farm has some of the highest populations for plains game hunting and its variety of African trophy hunting species makes it a paradise for any hunter, with the climate and terrain making it well-adapted to bow hunting. Build your own custom hunting package by selecting the number of days and species you wish to hunt. Hunts are only conducted on foot - fair chase! Please note that shooting from vehicles is not allowed. The game is located while cruising in a 4 X 4 vehicle. A large area can be covered, without losing valuable hunting time walking through dead terrain. Once game has been spotted, the stalk is planned and the vehicle drives off, leaving the hunter and his guide in a suitable position. Walking distance will not exceed 3 miles per day. The PH will bring you in a shooting distance between 80 to 200 yards. "Shooting sticks" (a rest for your rifle in order to ensure a stable position to shoot from) will then be set up. Once the stalk is completed, the vehicle will pick you up. Please inquire for available dates.
