AFRICA BOW HUNTING SAFARI IN NAMIBIA

Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris is a bow hunting outfitter and nationally registered bow hunting ranch. We were one of the first hunting outfitters to offer bow hunting in Namibia and were at the forefront of Namibia bow hunting legalization, which finally gained approval in 1997.

Bow hunters, familiar with the country, consider the overall conditions for bow hunting in Namibia particularly suited to their sport. Possessing some of the highest populations for plains game hunting and variety of African trophy hunting species makes it a paradise for any hunter, but climate and terrain are the features that make it so well-adapted to bow hunting.

The driest months for trophy hunting in Namibia are May through October and therefore are the most conducive for a bow hunting safari. Principally, plains game hunting is done from strategically positioned bow hunting blinds, ground hides and elevated stands near water holes and salt licks.

Our moveable bow hunting blinds are constructed specifically for bow hunting, they are very comfortable, roomy and you can stand up in them to bow hunt.

Within the bow hunting ranch vast territory there are over thirty water holes where everyday hundreds of head of plains game congregate, you will certainly see a large number of plains game and have ample opportunity for success on your plains game hunting safari. The challenge of a walk and stalk bow hunt in full camouflage may be undertaken by those wishing to test their africa bow hunting skills in Namibia’s competitive environment.

Our clients consistently leave with top quality trophies across the board, including an exceptional number of top 10 all time trophies hunted in Namibia according to Namibia Professional Hunter Association (NAPHA). More than 85% of our hunting trophies reach NAPHA Gold Medal standards or higher, which is why so many of our clients have returned to hunt Namibia with us again and again and have the confidence to send their friends.

Bow hunting for trophies in Namibia may only take place on a bow hunting ranch which is registered for this purpose with the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris meets all of the qualifications required to conduct bow hunting in Namibia. To be a bow hunting outfitter in Namibia, the hunting territory must be inspected and approved to become a nationally registered bow hunting ranch, and the outfitter must have one Professional Hunter in possession of a valid Namibia bow hunting license.

Bow hunting permits for all species must be obtained by a licensed bow hunting outfitter. Please note that Namibia bow hunting safari rules dictate that each bow hunter may hunt only two animals of each species. Additionally, Namibia does not allow dangerous game hunting by bow, with the exception of Cheetah hunting.

“Beautiful bow hunting ranch, packed with game, a Bow Hunter’s paradise” Steve Kobrine, renowned bow hunter, has taken 29 species of African game and possesses more SCI #1 world records for Bow Hunting than any other person

BOW HUNTING SAFARI EQUIPMENT

We recommend bringing two well-tuned hunting bows of draw weight not less than 50lbs, or 70lbs if you will be hunting African big game (see Namibia bow hunting equipment requirements below). Long bow hunting, recurve bow hunting and compound bow hunting is allowed, but crossbows are not allowed.

Arrows can be made out of wood, fiberglass, carbon or aluminum and the shaft must have a minimum length of 19.68 inches (500 mm). The arrows must be fitted with broadheads of modern configuration with at least two cutting blades and a minimum length and width of 1 inch (26 mm). Broadheads may not be barbed or have serrated edges, mechanical broadheads are legal in Namibia. Special arrow points such as judo points, bird points or blunt points may be used for bow hunting birds only.

A range finder can be a valuable tool for assessing distance in our unfamiliar Namibia hunting enviroment. A good supply of arrows, strings and other spares should be brought along, as there is virtually no bow hunting equipment available in Namibia. The most suitable colors for camouflage are a combination of muted gray, brown and yellow. Consult chart below for minimum kinetic energy and arrow weight requirements in Namibia.
