FREE RANGE MOUNTAIN HUNTING: NAMIBIA

Updated: Jun 6, 2019

We have exciting news for anyone that is looking to explore Africa, in particular Namibia.


Situated in the mountains west of Namibia’s capital city is Khomas Hochland. This 15,000Ha, rugged, operating cattle station has elevations up to 6000ft high which makes it the natural habitat for a unique genus of zebra, the hartmaan’s mountain zebra.


The indigenous animals on this property will come and go throughout the year, some stay all year round but others will go where ever they wish. Kudu and gemsbok are two species that lure hunters from all over the world to visit Africa and you can expect to see them roaming freely on the low fence property. There is also a chance of running into blue & black wildebeest, springbok, red hartebeest, toothy warthog, steenbok and a tiny mountain specialty the klipspringer.


This is a working cattle farm and has been in the family for 3 generations. Your guides have grown up here and know the property like the back of their hand, this will benefit you immensely when pursuing the animals that inhabit the property.


Due to the rugged mountainous terrain, hunting is predominately done by traditional walk & stalk as it is impossible to get a vehicle into some areas. These inaccessible areas are where our horseback safaris come into their own. The horses will allow you to cover much more land and because the horses are very well schooled, novice riders or first timers will enjoy this experience.


Shots here can be quite long so a little bit of practice with a flat shooting firearm is required. To maximise your enjoyment on this safari a base level of fitness is required, the place can be described as rough and rugged so it’s best to be prepared for it.


The species available are:

Baboon

Blesbok

Burchell Zebra

Hartmann Mountain Zebra

Damara Dik-Dik

Duiker

Eland

Giraffe

Hartebeest

Impala

Warthog

Klipspringer

Kudu

Oryx (Gemsbok)

Springbok

Steenbok

Ostrich

Blue Wildebeest

Black Wildebeest

Waterbuck


Because the property isn’t high fenced, we cannot offer clients all the species listed above on the same place. For some species we have to drive to the Kalahari, when this is the case we will sleep over for a night or two until the animals are secured.


Upon arrival in Namibia, you will be met at the Windhoek airport by your guides and transported by road to the hunting property 2 hours away. At the conclusion of the safari you will be dropped back off again for your flight home. All transport in the country is included in the day fees


The hunting vehicles are Toyota Land Cruisers & for the more adventurous souls riding on horse back.


Both rifle and bow hunting are available, but bow hunting is predominantly out of blinds. Scabbards, saddles and the necessary riding gear are provided when using the horses. Also saddle bags to pack smaller necessities are on the horses.


Fishing trips to the coast, escapes to Etosha Game Reserve and Erindi can be also be arranged but need to be quoted separately. Our outfitter is committed to ensure you have an authentic African adventure and a safe & memorable safari.


ACCOMMODATION

The accommodation at our Khomas Hochland property has 6 guest rooms with ensuite bathrooms. Hot and cold water, flushing toilets and electricity are all available. Family style meals are prepared for you so to maximise your hunting time. Mostly game meat is prepared and served by farming family members Mariana and Marike. The animals you hunt will go from field to fork as you will eat what you hunt here.


There is an opportunity for a very limited number of hunters to join us on the first visit to a new free range hunting property in the mountains of Namibia. I will be accompanying you on this expedition to experience a horseback safari in some of the most picturesque scenery the hunting world has to offer.


For fans of the TV show Aussie Hunting Adventures, you will know the host Dave Fent. Dave will be in camp filming a safari for the upcoming season of the show. If you would like the rare opportunity to chat with Dave around the camp fire then this is it.


The dates of the safari are from the 10th of March 2019 until the 20th. Due to the time difference you will need to be available at least a day before and after these dates.
