We offer professional and trained Guides,Trackers and Skinners to our clients. Our trackers are all Traditional San people from the area. A Bushman(San) tracker will back-up the hunt and will share his vast knowledge of the veldt and animals with you everyday of your hunt. A fair chase hunting experience you will not soon forget.
Predators and scavengers such as Cheetah, Leopard, Jackal and Brown Hyaena are common in the area ensuring a natural wildlife eco-system.

We are fortunate to have access to hunting Buffalo, Elephant, Hippo, Roan, Sable and crocodiles in the Caprivi with experienced big game and dangerous game outfitters in their concessions.
Hunts in the concession are very popular and booked 12-18 months in advance. 

Fair Chase is defined as the pursuit of a free roaming animal or an enclosed roaming animal possessed of the natural behavioral inclination to escape from a hunter and be fully free to do so.

  • Said animal is to be hunted without an artificial light source, not from a motorized mode of transport
  • No ethical hunter while sport hunting shall take a female animal with a dependant young
  • A hunted animal should exist as a natural interacting member of a wild sustainable population located in an area large enough for it to breed and forage or hunt freely
  • Hunted animals should be sustained within a natural state of balance between forage, predators and prey.

Riflehunting
Hunts are conducted on foot and shooting from vehicles are prohibited. Animals or fresh tracks are located while cruising with the vehicle and then stalked.

This ensure that you will be stalking or tracking the walking distance will not exceed 3-4 mile a day. All our PH’s and trackers are highly qualified and will ensure a good hunt and hunting memories.

Rifle requirements:
We recommend each hunter uses a scope sighted rifle he or she feel comfortable and familiar with, anything from 30-06, .375 for a plains game hunt works well and is more than adequate, as with all hunting shot placement and penetration is more important than muzzle velocity.
A good quality rifle scope is a must, Leopard are normally shot under low light conditions and require a scope that gathers maximum light.
A maximum of 60 rounds of ammunition may be imported for a specific caliber hunting rifle.

Give consideration to using premium grade, medium to heavy, soft-nosed bullets (Swift A-frame, Barnes X).
Rifles / shotguns and ammunition may be hired by prior arrangement from your outfitter.
Firearms should be packed unloaded in a secure rifle carry case, ensure your ammunition is packed separate in your checked luggage in a lockable metal container.

We recommend a strong gun case, make sure the case you choose include a strong exterior construction and are fitted with robust locks, internal padding and straps to secure your firearm. The case must be light enough for you to carry or be equipped with wheels. A soft gun case for travel on the back of the hunt vehicle is recommended.

A typical hunting day:
Uppon your arrival before any hunting is done rifles will be sighted on the shooting range.
Around the campfire at night the strategies of the following days hunt will be discussed over some good cuisine and  refreshments.
Your day start with rising at  05h30 and having breakfast in the Lapa.

The vehicle with your PH and tracker will then take you out to the designated area that will take 30-45 minutes.
Animals will be spotted or fresh tracks examined at waterholes and saltlicks whereafter a strategy will be decided upon and then the hunt is on.
Your tracker and PH will keep you informed during your stalk and when the animals are spotted your PH will place you in the best position for a shot on the selected animal. Your Ph will have hunting sticks available for stability and you will take your shot of them.
After the shot the animal will be approached and ensured that it is dead.
