Experience an Africa hunting safari adventure of a lifetime.

This private safari hunting reserve has been owned by a European family for three generations and is well known throughout Namibia for its plenitude of incredible plains game hunting trophy, as well as playing an important role in wildlife conservation.

Our Namibia hunting territory is located in a malaria free zone in the central region of Namibia (Otjozondjupa Region), click here for Namibia map. Our Africa hunting safaris territory neighbors the Waterberg Plateau National Park, renowned for its multitude of rare and endangered African big game and majestic beauty.

Profiting from Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris abundance, a magnificent array of African plains game may be seen grazing on the open plains or congregating near one of the numerous water holes. Found amongst this profusion of African wildlife are over 20 species for plains game hunting as well as Leopard hunting and Cheetah hunting in this natural unspoiled environment. Click here to read about a Leopard hunt or click here to read about a Cheetah hunt.

The African safaris hunting territory consists of a variety of differing terrains including bush land with open savannahs and contains an entire mountain range, Ozondjahe Peak, after which the Namibia hunting reserve is named. The vast area of Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris is 75,000 acres (30.000 hectares) or 120 square miles (300 square kilometers) in one solid landmass, which is ten times larger than the average hunting property in Namibia. This makes it possible for you to fully commit your time to your safari hunting endeavors rather than spending hours driving long distances between small hunting establishments, a common practice amongst hunting outfitters in Namibia.

By limiting the quantity of fair chase hunting safaris that we conduct, we consistently provide our clients with the exceptional African hunting trophies that they expect. As a result of our conscientious hunting practices, Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris possesses the greatest variety, game population and quality of African hunting trophy in the region.

ABOUT YOUR NAMIBIA HUNTING SAFARI
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.

Every Namibia hunting safari is tailored to meet your specific desires with your unsurpassed satisfaction being our foremost priority. You may choose to hunt one on one (1x1) with your own Professional Hunter, or alongside a friend (2x1), two hunters with one Professional Hunter.

Very few hunting outfitters in Namibia employ two full time Professional Hunters as we do, we can accommodate two hunters per Professional Hunter, four hunters total. For larger safari hunting groups we use select freelance Professional Hunters, familiar with Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris game reserve are also available.

Each African hunt is adapted to provide choice and variety of safari hunting methods, including bow hunting safaris. According to your quarry, preliminary sighting may be done by 4x4 vehicle with closer approach on foot, stalking and tracking, baiting for Leopard hunts, waiting from one of thirty strategically located permanent blinds or from a makeshift hide as the plains game hunting or dangerous game hunting necessitates.

“The hunt exceeded my expectations, thank you for my hunt of a lifetime” Dennis Richmond
NAMIBIA HUNTING SEASON
Our trophy hunting season in Namibia opens in February and runs through November, being 10 months long it incorporates each of the four seasons. There are no particular months when plains game hunting is necessarily better, but time constraints or personal considerations such as weather, touring, wingshooting, bow hunting or specific seasonal activities might make a certain period of time more desirable to you. Keep in mind while pondering your dates for hunting in Namibia, that seasons in Namibia, since we are in the Southern hemisphere are opposite of those in the Northern hemisphere. Click here to see what the climate is like during the trophy hunting season in Namibia.
DURATION OF YOUR AFRICA HUNT IN NAMIBIA
There is no typical itinerary for an African Hunting safari. At Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris our terrain and African hunting trophy species are so varied that we prefer to customize safari hunting in Namibia to fit each client’s individual priorities. Once you have decided on the species you wish to hunt we will recommend the amount of time required to meet your expectations for the variety and quality of Africa hunting trophy species you desire. On average, plains game hunting safaris as well as bow hunting safaris are between 9 to 12 hunting days. Dangerous game hunting such as Leopard hunting and Cheetah hunting require a minimum of 12 hunting days.

“I Enjoyed the hunt very much and got everything I intended to take” James Kirk

FOUR WHEEL DRIVE HUNTING VEHICLES
To ensure a trouble free and safe hunting safari, we have four reliable well-maintained and fully equipped Toyota four-wheel drive vehicles which are used for transportation within Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris territory. All of our open-vehicles have radio capability throughout the game reserve, are customized particularly for comfort and hunting purposes and carry a first aid kit. Cool boxes containing water and other refreshments will be brought along on each vehicle for your hydration needs and enjoyment.

“The facilities at Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris were as good as it gets” Lewis Campopiano
FIRST PREPARATION OF YOUR HUNTING TROPHIES
The first preparation of your trophies is included in our daily rate prices. With many years of experience refining their skills, our skinners working under the guidance of your Professional Hunter, will ensure that each of your hunting trophies is prepared to your specifications and treated with the exacting care it deserves. Once we have completed the first preparation of your hunting trophies, about a month after your hunting safari has concluded your trophies will be personally delivered to our African animal taxidermist, who will disinfect according to your country's standards, pack and crate your hunting trophies and deliver them to the consignor / shipping agent.

Please note that you may choose to have your African taxidermy work done in Namibia, partially or fully, or you can have it sent to be done by your own taxidermist. We recommend that you bring to Namibia your taxidermist's contact information along with their trophy tags, which your taxidermist should easily be able to give to you.

“They run an outstanding operation, attention to detail is second to none” James Vance
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. Click here to view our bow hunting blind pictures and here to view our Africa bow hunting trophy photos. 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. Click here for information pertaining to hunting the following species by bow in africa, Leopard hunting, African Lion hunting, Cape Buffalo hunting, Elephant hunting, Rhino hunting or Hippo 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.

CHEETAH HUNTING
If you are looking for a Cheetah hunt take into consideration that we have the highest density of Cheetah population in the world right where Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris game reserve is located. Our Cheetah hunting trophy pictures speak for themselves, click here to view our Cheetah hunting pictures or click here to view our African hunting trophy photo gallery.
A CHEETAH HUNT
A Cheetah hunt is challenging because a Cheetah hunting territory is vast so they are constantly on the move. Even more complicating is the fact that a Cheetah only eats freshly killed meat so they don't respond to baiting as is commonly done for Leopard hunting or Lion hunting. Suffice it to say that Cheetah hunts are mostly done on an encounter basis and some tracking can also be conducted. It does take a bit of chance to encounter them, though we have key areas such as play trees, rock formation, plains and water holes that are frequented by Cheetahs who pass through Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris territory.

We have an excellent native tracker in particular at Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris who has been tracking and hunting Cheetahs with us for over 20 years who is an expert at locating them, he has even been featured on the Discovery Channel for his expertise, that’s as good as it gets, when it comes to Cheetah hunting. Needless to say, with the exceptional abilities of our trackers, we have an excellent Cheetah hunting success rate.

Please note that the USA does not permit the importation of a Cheetah hunting trophy, as well as some other countries.

There is no particular time of the year that is considered better to hunt Cheetahs at Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris as Cheetahs are present throughout the year. Dangerous game hunting, meaning Cheetah hunting and Leopard hunting, require a minimum of 12 hunting days and are combined with a plains game hunting safari. Should a Cheetah or Leopard be encountered on a plains game hunt, it may be taken ONLY upon approval by the Professional Hunter and payment by the client of a special tariff of US$ 1500.00 per animal in addition to the regular Trophy Fee rate. Although Namibia does not allow dangerous game hunting by bow such as Leopard hunting, bow hunting cheetah is permitted.

Considering the challenging nature of a Cheetah hunt, we offer no guarantee and please be aware that any African hunting outfitter who offers a Cheetah hunting guarantee is most certainly doing something unethical in his methods or practices.

LEOPARD HUNTING
If you are looking for a Leopard hunting safari, Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris game reserve has a high population of Leopards for the trophy hunter who has been seeking this elusive member of the Big Five as well as other dangerous game hunting. click here to view our Leopard hunting pictures or click here to view our African hunting trophy photo gallery.
A LEOPARD HUNT
We do have a healthy number of Leopards on the game reserve, however we strictly limit our Leopard hunt s in an effort to manage our wildlife resources. We offer only four to five Leopard hunting safaris each year. We work on a demand basis, meaning when you are coming for a Leopard hunt we will start baiting and setting up hides in key locations a couple months before your arrival in order to stimulate the Leopard activity and increase your chances of taking your Leopard.

We do not set out baits for Leopard hunting all year long as specialized Leopard hunting safari outfitters do, we consider that to be feeding not baiting. We do not offer any guarantee as a specialized Leopard hunting outfitter may, but our daily rates are much lower, we do not charge for baiting and the minimum required hunting days are less than these types of Leopard hunting operations. Our clients also enjoy combining their Leopard hunt with plains game hunting which is not always possible with other Leopard hunting safari outfitters, where clients may spend up to twenty-four hours a day in the blind for days on end.

The better months for Leopard hunting at Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris are April through November, although Leopards are present and can be hunted throughout the hunting season. We have an excellent Leopard hunting success rate. Please note that the USA, as well as some other countries, require a CITES permit for the importation of a Leopard hunting trophy, which ideally should be applied for before the Leopard hunt takes place.

Both Leopard hunting and Cheetah hunting requires a minimum of 12 hunting days and are in combination with a plains game hunt. Should a Leopard or Cheetah be encountered on a plains game only hunt, it may be taken ONLY upon approval by the Professional Hunter and payment by the client of a special tariff of US$ 1500.00 per animal in addition to the regular Trophy Fee rate.

Namibia does not allow bow hunting Leopard, however South Africa bow hunting laws permit such dangerous game hunting. Although permits for South Africa bow hunting Leopards are scarce, should you be interested in bow hunting in South Africa for a Leopard, please contact us so we can help you with this special request. Although bow hunting Leopard is not allowed, cheetah bow hunting in namibia is permitted.

AFRICA BIRD HUNTING NAMIBIA
Interested in a bit of bird hunting to compliment your African plains game hunting safari? There may be a chance during Namibia bird hunting season, May through November, for some adrenaline charged Africa wingshooting, which we offer at no additional cost (except if you have purchased a package hunt, we charge US$ 100/excursion which includes all birds shot). Please see chart below for bird hunting season.

Wingshooting safaris that do not include plains game hunting can be organized for groups of two to four shooters at a daily rate of $450 per person, which includes all birds shot. We are home to more than one of the world’s finest sporting birds such as Namaqua Sandgrouse, Doublebanded Sandgrouse, Burchell Sandgrouse, Laughing Doves and Cape Turtle Doves, in addition to Helmeted Guineafowl, Redbilled Francolin, Kurrichane Button Quail and Harlequin Quail. Even a skillful sportsman will be impressed with the sheer speed, agility and formidable number of Namibia’s worthy African game birds. click here to view our bird hunting pictures or click here to view our African hunting trophy photo gallery.

“Huge numbers of Grouse, fast paced and challenging” Alfred Kaus

An abundance of Sandgrouse is found in our region, flying great distances to drink at favored water holes during the morning hours. These agile birds are hunted as they approach the water in large numbers and descend at high speeds.

Doves challenge Sandgrouse in many ways, flying with extreme swiftness and remarkable acrobatic skill. As challenging as anywhere else in the world, these fine sporting birds are hunted at water holes in the late afternoon and are sometimes so numerous, choosing which one to shoot can be the hardest part.

Typically found on open grassland, Guineafowl, Francolin and Quail are tricky escape artists proving hard to flush and are usually hunted walked-up with our bird dog. A twelve-gauge shotgun is advisable, for your convenience should you not wish to travel with your own shotgun, one of ours may be hired for US$ 30 per day and ammunition supplied for US$ 13/box (25 count per 12 gauge shotgun shells).

ARMS & AMMUNITION
While most shots are taken from within a 110 yards (100 meters), they can range from fairly close in thicker bush to relatively long distances up to 250 yards (230 meters) on open plains, so a good variable scope is suggested, you may also consider bringing a shooting stick or you can use one of ours.

Any caliber .270 or higher may be used for most plains game hunting but we strongly recommend a .300 Magnum caliber rifle or higher. For Cape Eland a .375 H&H Magnum is more suitable.

About 60 rounds of ammunition should be sufficient for a twelve-day hunt. Eighty rounds of ammunition per firearm is the maximum allowable. We think it best that you bring some type of wearable rifle cartridge carrier. We recommend that clients bring their own rifle, although firearms and ammunition may be hired by prior arrangement for US$ 30/day and ammunition supplied at a nominal fee. For optimal performance, rifle sighting will be done prior to the commencement of your hunting safari.

Handguns, automatic weapons and solid point cartridges are not permitted in Namibia.

“I was very pleased and would recommend Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris to others” Brent Wilbur
CLIMATE IN NAMIBIA

Located in the central high plains of Namibia at an elevation of 5200 feet (1600 meter), the temperature range can be rather extreme, typically varying 35° F (20° C) between daily highs and lows. During the early and late months of the hunting season, the occasional rainstorm can disrupt the clear sunny skies; although there may be heavy showers they are usually short in duration and typically occur in the late afternoon or evening.

In reality our Namibian climate is pleasantly low in humidity, the dry heat being much more tolerable and therefore more conducive to hunting safaris than is the case in most other destinations for hunting in Africa.

Another benefit of the arid climate in our specific region is that Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris is in a malaria free zone. With an absence of mosquitoes carrying malaria or yellow fever and no tsetse flies, overall we have a very low insect population for Africa Hunting areas. To properly prepare for our diverse climate, please refer to the Recommended Clothing and Equipment section.

NAMIBIA HUNTING SAFARI PRICE LIST 2012
You will find our Price List below.

Price is certainly an important point in choosing where to go on your African hunting safari. While price is a big factor, one should take all aspects into consideration such as what the price includes or excludes, past client references (very important), the size of the property, the trophy quality (don't be fooled by outfitters who show only their best 15 trophy pictures from over the years), the experience of the hunting team and the reliability and number of vehicles equipped for hunting, the standard of accommodations as well as level of service that is offered.


With us, you will never encounter any unpleasant surprises at the end of your hunting safari such as hidden charges or fees. Even ethical hunting outfitters sometime fail to mention charges for common safari services, which can really add up, such as charging you for arrival and departure days, transportation to and from the airport, gold medal trophy surcharges on top of the regular trophy fee, trophy transport fees to the taxidermist, hunting licenses or hunting permits... All are common fees that you may not be aware of.

For the best hunting safari deal in Namibia, we also offer a limited number of discounted hunting packages for rifle and bow hunters.

We are Safari Club International Member (SCI) and a member of Namibia Professional Hunter Association (NAPHA).

We are also represented by Members of the American Association of International Professional Fishing and Hunting Consultant.

We are proud to be represented by the most experienced, reputable and well established hunting consultants, hunting agents and bow hunting safari consultants in the industry. Should you feel more comfortable using a hunting booking agent for your hunting in Namibia, we will gladly refer you to one of our associated hunting consultants in your area, though please feel free to contact us directly for any reason.

We attend the following hunting shows; the SCI hunting show in Reno, USA annually and our hunting consultants and hunting booking agents represent us at the Safari Club International hunting trade show, Dallas Safari Club hunting show in the USA, Campyn Internacional hunting expo in Mexico, Country Show in France, Salon de la Chasse du Grand Gibier in France, Venatoria Salon de Cazadores in Spain and other hunting trade shows.
HUNTING LICENSE & EXPORTATION PERMITS
Once your hunting safari has been confirmed, Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris will obtain your hunting license & hunting permits on your behalf, which is part of our all inclusive pricing. For us to apply for these documents, the Hunting License and Hunting Permits Application (one form) must be filled out by you and returned to us well before the commencement of your hunting safari.

This application form may be submitted to us online by clicking here or printed from our web site by clicking here and once completed may be faxed to us.

Please indicate any and all species that you may be interested in hunting, it in no way obligates you to do so. Trying to obtain a permit for an animal that has already been hunted that was not included on your original hunting permit is more difficult after the fact.

For certain species, a special trophy hunting permit must be obtained by the hunting outfitter in Namibia prior to the start of the hunt, such as Leopard hunting or Cheetah hunting. We will also take care of obtaining your special export permits that are required for Leopard and/or Cheetah.

Please note that the USA does not permit the importation of a Cheetah hunting trophy, as well as some other countries.

An additional importation permit from the country of destination may also be required (read following section). Namibian law dictates that each hunter may take only two animals of each species.
IMPORTATION PERMITS
All importation permits from country of residence are the hunters’ responsibility to obtain; we are unable to apply for them on your behalf. A CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) importation permit is required for Leopard from the United States, as well as many other countries. Prior to exportation of the Leopard trophy from Namibia, the hunter is responsible for obtaining and providing us with the CITES permit from his country of residence, for more information visit their web site at http://www.cites.org.

In the United States a CITES permit may be obtained from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, you can find them at http://www.fws.gov, hunters from other countries should consult their customs office to find out if they need an importation permit, and if so, where they should apply.

Before a Baboon trophy can be imported into the United States, the Center for Disease Control (http://www.cdc.gov) requires an importation permit issued by the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine, for more information visit their web site at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dq.

Although the United States prohibits the importation of a Cheetah trophy, many other countries allow it, check with your customs office to find out if Cheetah is legal to import into your country, and whether a special importation permit is required.
EXCURSIONS & TOURS IN NAMIBIA
Many of our hunters and their guests take the opportunity while in Namibia, usually following their hunting safari, to see more of our beautiful country. We would be happy to arrange an itinerary and guide your customized tour, according to your interests and time availability, from half-day excursions to extensive tours of the country.

Every detail will be taken care of during your all-inclusive private tour. All travel will be made in comfortable, reliable vehicles, although for some more remote destinations it may be preferable to charter an aircraft to save time, at an additional charge.

Be assured, whatever the destination that we always provide our guests with the best accommodations and services available. Although the sightseeing opportunities in Namibia are too numerous to list, you will find a brief description below of our most popular destinations. Please contact us to discuss the many touring options available.

“Visiting Namibia was the highlight of our year! We had a wonderful trip, both hunting and touring Etosha and the Desert” Dr. Charles Nadler


Tour of the Waterberg Plateau National Park
Our neighbor, the Waterberg Plateau is one of the most magnificent geological formations in Namibia and is easily seen from anywhere within Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris territory.

The reserve’s dramatic vertical cliffs rise more than 650 feet (200 meter) above the surrounding plains, creating natural boundaries which help protect the rare and endangered species that have been successfully resettled there to ensure their survival.

Since 1972, the 100,000 acre (41.000 hectares) sanctuary has become a prosperous natural breeding environment for the highly endangered Black and White Rhinoceros and home to Cape Buffalo, Roan Antelope, Sable Antelope and Tsessebe to name a few.

For a half-day excursion it takes 40 minutes by car from Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris to reach the departure point for the three-hour game drive, guided by Park Rangers. No private vehicles are allowed into the Park. Please contact us for prices.


Tour of Etosha National Park
A tour of Namibia would be incomplete without a visit to Etosha National Park, our most popular excursion destination and one of the world’s greatest game reserves.

A one-day visit is possible due to the park’s close proximity to Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris, leaving early in the morning, with an hour and a half drive to the Southern gate and returning later that evening.

Although a two-day tour of Etosha, with an overnight stay at one of the three Lodges within the park, is preferable for those who wish to experience the night game viewing. At the floodlit waterholes, it is common to see Elephant, Black and White Rhinoceros, Lion, Leopard, Hyena or often-unseen nocturnal species.

This huge sanctuary is home to over 100 mammal species including many rare and endangered animals and is some 8,598 square miles (22.270 km2) in extent with a network of 435 miles (700 km) of gravel roads. Please contact us for prices.

Tour of Swakopmund
Visiting Swakopmund, a colonial German seaside town and Namibia’s premier holiday resort, is like stepping back in time. Not only will you be enchanted by its historic European charm, but delighted by the multitude of diverse points of interest to be explored within the immediately surroundings.

Because there is so much to see, as well as being a four and a half hour drive from Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris, we require a minimum visit of two days and one night. During which time you will be staying at the best hotel in the heart of Swakopmund. In the evening(s) you will enjoy delicious meals, fresh seafood being the favorite for many, especially the local rock lobster and oysters.

Using the city as our hub we can visit such sights as the Namib Desert, home to extraordinary landscapes, animals and plant life. Unique to the Desert in this region is the oldest living plant in the world, the Welwitschia Mirabilis, an octopus like giant which can reach 2000 years of age. We can view the “Moon Landscape” created by the mighty Swakop River flowing towards the sea, that has been sculpting and eroding the land for millions of years until it created an unearthly effect, or the spectacular contrast of the orange sand dunes meeting the Atlantic Ocean.

Other impressive sites to see are Cape Cross, a noteworthy historical landmark, located in the center of the sole breeding colony of 100,000 Cape Fur Seals on mainland and the Walvis Bay Nature Reserve, a wetland bird sanctuary boasting, at any given time, as many as 200,000 birds; Flamingo, Pelican and Sand Piper to name a few.

Some leisure time may also be available to explore the quaint town of Swakopmund itself, do a bit of shopping, walk on the beach or visit the local museum. Please contact us for prices.

Tour of Sossusvlei
The bright red-orange crescent shaped sand dunes at Sossusvlei are one of Namibia’s top attractions and reputed to be the highest dunes in the world. At around 1066 ft (325m) high, these ever changing, wind sculpted giants are truly a spectacular and impressive site. Sossusvlei is so overwhelmingly beautiful that many people say that visiting the undulating dune sea is one of the most memorable experiences of their lifetime.

One would expect this vast sandy landscape to be barren, but to the contrary the Namib is home to a number of specialized animal species, all have adapted to the harsh environment, many by seeking shelter underground to escape the heat, and obtaining their precious water solely from fog condensation. You will be accommodated as well as eat your meals at a very comfortable lodge outside of the Park, from where guided tours will depart.

Due to the long distance (220 miles/350km) and some unpaved sections of the road, from Swakopmund to Sossusvlei it is a six-hour drive and may not be possible at certain time of the year. For this trip it is necessary to spend a minimum of two nights and is best done as an extension to the Tour of Swakopmund. If time is limited, an alternative is to charter an aircraft, either from Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris private runway or from Swakopmund airport for an additional charge. Please contact us for prices.

Air Travel

Your final destination will be Windhoek International Airport, just outside the Capital of Namibia, where you will be met by us and taken by car (a three hour drive) to Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris, click here to see Namibia map.

I like Gracy Travel International of San Antonio, Texas, a travel agency that specializes in sending hunters to Africa and around the world. You may contact them at (210) 698.2611, (800) 299.8558 or http://www.gracytravel.com.

Traveling through South Africa with Rifles or Firearms


Should you be traveling to or through South Africa, leaving the airport with your firearms, you will be required to fill out the new South Africa Firearms Permit Application Form, click here to download the SAPS 520 Form and request from us, the hunting outfitter, a Letter of Invitation for the Central Firearms Register. For instructions on completing SAPS 520 Form by the South African Police Services click here.

RiflePermits.com is a small company in South Africa that works hand-in-hand with the South African Police Services (SAPS) to provide "import/export" or "in-transit" permits for your rifle(s) before you arrive in South Africa. They offer a good service and you will find valuable
information regarding this process on their website at http://www.riflepermits.com. For the new requirements to import firearms into South Africa, as published by the South African Police Service, click here.


Trip Cancellation Insurance


You may wish to consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance, contact your insurance agent or try CSA Travel Protection Insurance at http://www.csatravelprotection.com or (800) 873.9855. Consider also insurance for your baggage, including your firearm(s), medical, 24 hour assistance..., from your travel agent or insurance agent (to compare and obtain prices online visit http://insuremytrip.com for your travel insurance plans from 14 different companies).



Passport

All foreigners must be in possession of a passport that will remain valid for at least six months after the intended date of departure from Namibia.

U.S. Department of State - Passport Services and Information http://travel.state.gov/passport_services.html


Entry Visa

Citizens of the United States, Canada, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and United Kingdom planning to spend no more than 90 days in Namibia, with a return ticket, will be issued a visa at the airport upon arrival.

Persons possessing passports from other countries may be required to obtain an entry visa prior to departure from their country. This should be done well in advance as it can take some time. You may check visa requirements for foreigners traveling to Namibia http://www.mfa.gov.na/frames/visasframe.htm. The visa application form can be downloaded from our web site by clicking here or sent to you upon request. Should you have any questions as to whether you are required to obtain a visa from your country of citizenship, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Baggage Allowance

Airlines at your departure point may be more liberal concerning baggage weight than airlines departing from Namibia; they are strict about total weight for checked baggage not being more than 44lbs (20kg) otherwise you may be charged hefty excess baggage fees. Gun weight should not be included in the calculation of total weight.


Arms & Ammunition

International law requires that all firearms be transported in purpose built hard cases that are locked and separate from any ammunition. Temporary importation of hunting weapons into Namibia is free of charge, firearms and ammunition must be declared upon entry, where your permit will be issued.

To speed up this process, we advise that prior to departure, you fill in the Gun Permit Application form available from us and carry it with you. Click here to download this form or we can send it to you upon request.

Although it is not required by Namibian Customs, we recommend while traveling, especially via South Africa, that you carry your gun license with you. Some countries, including the United States, do not issue gun licenses, in this event a copy of proof of ownership should be carried instead. One hundred rounds of ammunition per firearm is the maximum allowable in Namibia and only the ammunition for the specific caliber may be imported.

There is no limit to the number of firearms that may be imported into Namibia for trophy hunting purposes, howver we recommend clients to not bring more than two firearms, especially while travelling through South Africa as their laws differ largely from those in Namibia.

Handguns, automatic weapons, croosbows and solid point cartridges are not permitted in Namibia.



Recommended Hunting Safari Clothing & Equipment

Safari hunting wear should be comfortably fitting and made of a sturdy fabric, we suggest cotton in khaki or a neutral color. We recommend layering clothing since temperature changes throughout the day can be significant, typically varying 35° F (20° C) from day to night.

It is essential that hunting boots be comfortable and well broken-in. Due to the thorn bush, we advise against wearing shorts for hunting. For your convenience laundry is done on a daily basis; packing should be done with this in mind. Click here to read the baggage weight allowances section.
