Clothing

Clothing for the hunting field:  Three to four sets of medium cotton clothing in camouflage colors such as olive greens, khaki and beige. A pair of well-fitting and comfortable hiking boots, a broad rimmed safari hat, warm sleepwear and sweaters or parkas for cool nights and mornings. Please be sure to bring warm clothing if your safari falls between May and August. Bring along comfortable clothes and shoes for evenings and excursions.


The Rifle

Bringing the right rifle to the hunting safari can make all the difference. The 300's are our preferred caliber. On medium to large game like Kudu and Oryx, we would not recommend a smaller caliber than a 30-06 and for large game like Eland and Giraffe, we recommend a 375 or similar caliber. Reason being that the front shoulder bones of these animals are much thicker than that of smaller game, easily stopped by smaller calibers if the shot placement is even just a little off target.


The Bullets

Everyone has their preferred bullets. Our preferred bullets are Barnes TSX in 180 gr. or higher, because the bullet retains most of its weight, is very accurate and has a high velocity.


The Scope

The most preferable scope is what you as hunter are familiar with. A 3-9x40 scope is more than sufficient to do the job. The PH, Ruan, personally uses a Leopold VX 1 on his 300WM

It's small, effective and durable.


Hunting Conditions

The northern part of Namibia is known for the bush, rather than open Savannah grasslands. The largest part of the hunting area is in semi thick bush, which is one more reason why larger caliber guns do better. A smaller caliber bullet can easily be thrown off target with the slightest brush of a leaf or tall grass. The average shots granted are between 100 and 200 meters, rarely any further than that.


Rifle Imports

Rifle hunters who enter Namibia, must complete a temporary import permit for all rifle and/or ammunition in your possession. This permit is obtainable on arrival at the airport and it takes only a few minutes to be issued.
