Plains game hunting in Namibia can be less expensive than S. Africa
If you are ok with simpler (but adequate) lodging, Namibia may be for you. You will stay in a farm house with the owners of the farm, and the hunting will be exceptional.
This place is a gem. You will have over 100,000 acres of private land available to hunt plains game. All of the game on this farm is born on the farm. This is not a “put and take” operation.
They own 14k acres in the back yard with 100k acres in concessions and are a family business that speak 5 languages. Great honest people who specialize in spot and stalk bow hunting. They even have San people bow hunters who lead hunts for $50 extra a day!” -Mat Cervantes
What to expect when hunting in Namibia:
Hunting Season in Namibia
The best time to go on a plains game hunt in Namibia is February through November. The landscape is breathtaking open Savannah, dry rivers, huge Maroela trees, and a Palm-like landscape.
The Professional Hunter is experienced with both rifle and bowhunting, and Safaris are custom made to fit your personal goals for your Africa Safari!
Hunting takes place from hides and on “stalking walks” according to the hunter’s preference. Since emphasis is put on exclusivity and individual service, they only take a maximum of 4 hunters at a time (2 x 2 : 1).
Most of the plains game taken on this hunting concession are gold medal trophies. There are many, many plains game species available to hunt, but this area is a paradise for Greater Kudu, Oryx, Eland, Zebra, Hartebeest, Blessbok, Warthog, Steenbok, Duiker, Damara Dik-Dik, and the Jackal.
All game animals are born and bred on the farm. They do not believe in “put and take” hunting nor in “canned” hunting and are proud to uphold the tradition of ethical fair-chase hunting.

WITH THE SANS BUSHMEN
“The San people literally have to find something to eat from the ground, fight with live animals to survive, and live in the twig-weaved hut. In our standard, they are not doing well. Nonetheless, they were the happiest people I’ve ever met in a long time. I asked Master Kutu, if he likes living in the desert (what a stupid question). He said, they would all die if they didn’t. They came back because this is their home, and they are free here. Happiness is state of mind, I’ve realized it again.
We couldn’t communicate much (but many of them can speak fluent English), but they were enjoying our little group’s curiosity. A young girl dragged me into her group to let me take photos her family. They had such a genuine facial expressions. They looked straight into the lens, with 100% innocent eyes. They were not trained models, but the energy from their eyes were more powerful than ever.”
