"This was my first time in Africa and I don't believe I could have chosen a better place to hunt, the hunt itself was incredible and my PH, Francois was highly knowledgeable and experienced. The amount of game was absolutely incredible.I bow hunted for 10 days and had the best time every day. I took 7 trophies and am highly pleased with everyone. The lodge staff and everyone I came in contact with was extremely friendly. I would highly recommend Ozondjahe Safaris if you are looking to go to Africa. I am already in the process of planning my next trip. I sure hate to leave."
Jeff B., USA
“I had the opportunity to bowhunt with Francois Roberts of Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris this past June/July. This was my first trip to Africa and it exceeded my expectations big time! The abundance of wildlife was phenomenal with good activity daily. Francois was an exceptional PH in guiding me through a 10 day hunt and putting me on 14 animals! The entire staff at Ozondjahe is very accommodating and will go out of their way to ensure you are satisfied.”
Jarrod S., Texas, USA
“I had a great time at Ozondjahe. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help you and make you feel at home.
My PH was Francois. He was very selective on what he advised me to shoot. I was here 8 days and have 9 trophies with memories to last a lifetime.
I hope to be able to return in a couple of years to try to get trophies i didn’t have time for this trip.”
Brett B., USA
“We had an excellent time, the guides exceeded our expectations and went out of their way to see to all our needs.
We all shoot exceptional good animals with over 90% of them Golds.
I would have no problems recommending this company for an African experience.”
Troy M., New Zealand
“Thank you for hosting us on our Namibian Hunting Safari. The hunting exceeded my expectation and the setting and staff hospitality was superb.
I will never forget the excitement of the Leopard Hunt and the chalenge of the kudu hunt. All the trophies are wonderful. Best regards, Al and Suzy”
Allen & Suzy W., USA
“Merci pour votre merveilleuse hospitalité. Votre maison est magnifique ! Nous avons apprécié de voir tant d'animaux et surtout les guépards.
Ce fut un grand plaisir pour Bob de tirer un léopard sur votre ferme. Un rêve de vie ! Il sera toujours nous reparler du beau pays qu'est la Namibie.
Votre gentillesse est la plus appréciée. Nous nous souviendront toujours de vous.
Sincèrement, Bob & Judi.”
“This safari to Namibia is a dream we’ve had for several years. Three years ago when we first came to Africa on Safari (South Africa) it just served to awaken our appetite to come back again. at the top of the list, this time, was the leopard. On day 2 of a fourteen-day hunt, my dream was realized, a Gold Medal Leopard!
Ozondjahe Safaris offers the best of all aspects of the perfect hunt. Endless acres of territory, hundreds and hundreds of animals from which to choose, professional guides, drivers and housekeeping staff. The chef and kitchen staff outdid themselves each day with beautifully prepared meals.
The memories we’ve made will last a life time.
Not to exclude the non-hunter, Maureen, the manager, went out of her way to entertain Judi - even teaching her to knit while Bob was hunting each day - shopping trips, many visits in the lapa and even a pedicure totally spoiled me.”
Judi & Bob B., USA
“Professional Hunter, Francois Robberts, guided me on a Fantastic Leopard Hunt.
The Hunt took place in June of 2014, in Namibia, Africa. Francois is a true pleasure to hunt with. He truly knows the hunting business and the art of Leopard Hunting. I fulfilled a life long dream on this hunt. Thanks to Francois, I took a Truly Monster Leopard, that exceeds all my dreams. ...more”
Monte Ford, California, USA.
“My wife Sandy and I had a fantastic hunting experience at Ozondjahe. The trip exceeded both of our expectations. The hunting was outstanding, and Francois and Fredrick were a pleasure to hunt with. They were a great team, and my wife Sandy and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our hunting safari at Ozondjahe. We saw an abundance of game in a vast landscape challenging topography and thick bush. The trophy quality was exceptional, and the judgement of Francois was very valuable in selecting the best game to go after and stalk. They helped me change my wife’s view of hunting by their gentlemanly and sportsmanlike conduct in the field. Sandy arrived in Namibia as a non-hunter who was somewhat dreading the trip, and who had sworn to not want any part of the hunting or eating any wild game… to becoming curious enough about all of the wild game we saw to start riding along on almost all of our hunts and enjoying Franz’s excellently prepared game dishes at almost every lunch and dinner. Janette and Pauline were also very good hostesses, and even sent us home with a jar of homemade cumquat marmalade. Thanks for the great hunting experience. Best regards,”
Bryce J. McK., Pennsylvania, USA.
“I originally planned this safari as a gift for our oldest son. He convinced me to hunt as well. So we arranged a 2×1 trip. After 6 days of our 8 hunting days we had already 8 of 10 of the animals on our list. The 9th followed on the 7th day. We shall see what tomorrow brings. The accommodations were very nice. The food was quite good. The staff was very accommodating. The PH Francois was in fact very professional as well as being quite helpful. And it was a pleasure to associate with each day.”
Daniel McN., Wyoming, USA.
“We spent nine days in the beautiful Ozondjahe. A great area, with nice variation. We enjoyed the hunt and the game population turned out to be very very good! The camp was neat and tidy and the food and service was excellent. Christine, Helgaard and Francois thanks a lot! We enjoyed it a lot (especially the springbok!).”
Kari M., Heikki J. and Mikaela M., Finland.
“4th Trip to Ozondjahe, as always treated like I am a wayward son coming home. Meals were wonderful and hunting was difficult but rewarding. Too much rain and green for good bow hunting at the waterholes. PH’s did all they could to make our hunt productive. Between my son and I we took 7 bow hunting trophies. Fantastic given the circumstances.”
Tom P., Kentucky, USA.
“I wanted to tell you personally that we had the time of our lives. The staff was great and we had a lot for fun with both PHs. The hunting was much more them I dreamed it would be, we took some amazing trophies. The plan is to come back in two years with our kids. Thanks you,”
Jesse & Cassi K., Colorado, USA.
“On behalf of our group; may I thank you for your warm hospitality and friendship during our stay at Ozondjahe Safaris!

Viva Le Ozondjahe! Warmest regards, “Dear Jerome, We got back yesterday! Everyone was all smiles thanks to your gracious hospitality! We truly had an amazing time at Ozondjahe! Everything was perfectly organized but the coup d’Grace was the warmth and personal affection of all of you! Hunting was excellent and I look forward to returning! Cheers,”
Nasim A. and family, Maryland, USA.
“How can we possibly thank you for the trip of a lifetime??? Ozondjahe surpassed our expectations in every way! The hunting (our first time ever) was incredible, our PH was exceptional, 18 animals with 2 hunters! The lodge managers were gracious, kind and exceptionally thoughtful! We will be back!!!”
Karen, Mark & Cullen J., Arizona, USA.
“First time hunting in Africa. Ozondjahe made us feel part of their family. It was an amazing life experience! Not what I expected in terms of a hunting experience. Every aspect of the the trip exceeded my expectations. Look forward to a return trip. A great place to bring your wife along even if she doesn’t hunt. Thank you again Ozondjahe for a great hunt and African experience…”
Terry K., British Columbia, Canada.
“Thank you for your southern hospitality (Southern Africa that is!). Perhaps some day we will see you in Virginia. Your attention to detail and professionalism is exemplary in the world of hunting. We achieved all of our perverse goals having great fun while trying to be good conversationists. Keep up the good word and we hope we as members of our family will visit with you here in the not too distant future. We had an awesome time, Sincerely,”
Stuart & Sallie B., Virginia, USA.
“Dear Ozondjahe Safaris, Thank you for making our African adventure so amazing. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hunting!! The staff was truly professional, and the accommodations were awesome. One of the tightest luxury hunting adventures on the planet. With care towards trophy quality and hunting experiences, this trip is guaranteed to exceed your expectations. You will see trophy animals, be ready to do your part! It was an Honor to hunt at Ozondjahe!!! Warm wishes,”
Travis & Jason V., Pennsylvania, USA.

Maxime & Dominique B., Gerard V., France.
“On behalf of our group, may I thank you for your warm hospitality and friendship during our stay at Ozondjahe Safaris!
We had a terrific time, not only was the hunting outstanding, but the ambience and affection simply beyond imagination! We were treated like family and it touched everyone in the group!
You deserve to be complemented for this vision which can only come from the true passion of a real sportsman!
And things to Jerome, the true gentleman, a reality!
“Thoroughly enjoyed my third trip to Ozondjahe. Took all the animals I needed to finish my growing trophy room. As always PH’s for both bow and gun hunting were excellent. I am looking forward to booking with you again. If someone needs a further reference have them give me a call. Warmest regards,”
Tom P., Kentucky, USA.
“Christine, Helgaard, Francois,
Merci pour votre accueil chaleureux, votre patience et la douceur avec laquelle vous m’avez accueillie. Moments de chasse agréables avec des emotions fortes pour trouver 2 gros “chats”, je suis très heureuse pour le caracal qui prend une grande place.
Maybe I come back next year for the big leopard that I have seen in pictures. Thank you… Merci”
Laetitia H., France.
“This is really a seven star Safari!!! First everyone here was great and very friendly and the animals were great even if some of them were toooo big or toooooo female, but I think it was fantastic and we have enjoyed our stay very very much!!! Thanks again to all the people here and specially Christine who thought of the smallest detail and was great.”
Salim D., Lebanon.
“Had a fantastic time like I did when I was here in July. Actually, this time was even better since I got the Leopard I’ve been after for a long time. Francois was a great PH and worked very hard to get me the most beautiful Leopard. Actually, we saw three in the 10 days I hunted. On the first day we had a very old, fat, white leopard come within 6 meters of our blind but did not get a shot off! Everyone was fantastic and I thank all for making this the best hunt of my life.”
Bob C., Florida, USA.
“I have returned from my second trip to Ozondjahe in three years, a 10-day plains game hunt, and the trip was fantastic. I felt like I was returning home from the moment we reached the main gate, an experience that was enhanced when we were met by the Ozondjahe staff. My major objectives on this hunt were black wildebeest and waterbuck. I was fortunate to take an exceptional waterbuck and a black wildebeest that I consider to be excellent. Despite the fact this was a two-on-one hunt, I also had several opportunities to take impala, gemsbok and kudu that were equal toç†”r maybe a bit better than--the fine trophies I took a couple years ago (when I also successfully took a leopard). However, I voluntarily held out for something truly exceptional and enjoyed the hunt, although now I am having some second thoughts about a kudu I passed with a few days left in the hunt. We did see a gemsbok that fit the bill but could not close the deal on him. PH Francois Roberts is a good hunter and a great guy with whom to spend time in the field. My friend, on his first trip to Africa, harvested good kudu, gemsbok, blue wildebeest, impala, steenbok and warthog and had a great experience on his first African safari.”
Paul B., California, USA.
“What a wonderful experience! You welcomed us and made us part of your family! You met and exceeded our expectations! Thank you for all you did to make everyone feel comfortable and help make our African journey beyond our wildest dreams! Lots of love The Smiths”
Lamar, Deborrah & Max S., USA
“My first trip to Africa was a great experience. The accommodations and the staff exceeded my expectations. The ranch was awesome and holds many quality animals. My PH did everything he could to help make my hunt enjoyable and successful. I hope to return in the future with family members who also bow hunt.”
David L., Kentucky, USA
“This was my first trip to Africa but will not be my last. The accommodations were excellent and staff everything I could ask for. The ranch is beautiful and game plentiful. Francois, our PH, has unbelievable eyes and is able to quickly and accurately evaluate trophy quality. He is everything you could ask for in a PH.”
Richard E., Colorado, USA.
“My experience here at Ozondjahe has been absolutely magnificent. The staff and the guides are wonderful. The game here is very abundant as is the land. The time I have spent here, I will remember for the rest of my life. In my first few days here I was already thinking about my next trip here. Although it is my first time in Namibia, I would recommend this place to anyone coming to Africa.”
Tyler S., Colorado, USA.
“I had an exceptional time on my 8 day hunt. The PH was knowledgeable and an excellent spotter. The trackers were first rate with their ability to track as fast as I can walk. The lodge service is first rate with a four star style. Thanks to all. An excellent ranch with good chances at gold medal quality game.”
David A., Colorado, USA.
“We found our African hunting trip to be an enjoyable family vacation combining the hunt, photography and 1st class facilities. Each day was treated as the first day of the hunt by our PH Francois and the hunting and house staff. These people were dedicated and knowledgeable about the hunt, the game and its’ habits and the history and background of Namibia. The Windhoek pickup and escort to Etosha Park made arrangements care free. As for the actual hunt, we’ve never seen so much game and were able to take the trophy class species desired. Care was taken to take only mature trophy animals to ensure conservation. The accommodations and hunting vehicles were top notch. I will recommend Ozondjahe to anyone.”
Bob, Helen and Sarah S., Washington, USA.
“This truly was a hunt of a lifetime! The accommodations were amazing. We had such a successful hunt. the PH was very knowledgeable and professional. We also had a great amount of fun. The atmosphere was light and relaxing. I would recommend Ozondjahe to my closest friends and will definitely be back very soon. Thanks to Francois, Andries and all the wonderful people who made my African adventure a trip of a lifetime!”
Jason W., Utah, USA.
“Ozondjahe was referred to me from friends hunting in the past. I now will certainly refer others to experience this fantastic opportunity. The staff, accommodations, food, equipment and everything else is truly first rate. The knowledgeable PHs are the best and will do everything to make sure your hunting success is met. After 8 days of hunting we did not cover all of the property. This is the best experience I have had in Africa.”
Kent H., Utah, USA.
“Ozondjahe was truly an amazing experience. The hunting and hunting staff was top notch. We were taken care of so well from the minute we arrived until we left. We hope to be back soon. We fell as if we are leaving a group of friends as we leave. Thanks to all. We appreciate the great hunting and excellent service.”
Kelly H., Utah, USA.
“I had a fantastic experience at Ozondjahe, from the moment I arrived till I left. Francois, my PH, was a pleasure to hunt with every day and the hosts made me feel right at home. The entire staff was very professional and courteous. I had the time of my life and can’t wait till I come back.”
Neil W., Nebraska, USA.
“The hunting experience was excellent. There was an abundance of game and the PH Francois was very knowledgeable. He also was very helpful in identifying potential trophies to shoot. The host and hostess were absolutely great. They made my son and I feel very much at home. Also the overall services including the meals were superb. We plan on coming back for another hunt.”
Walt W., Nebraska, USA.
“Our stay at Ozondjahe was excellent. Everyone did everything they could to make my wife, mother and sister comfortable. My father and I had a wonderful hunt; we saw lots of game and left with all of the animals we had on our list. Peter and Francois were a wealth of information, were wonderful PHs, you can tell they love their job. I would recommend Ozondjahe to anyone.”
Rob S., Washington, USA.
“I had an incredible time at Ozondjahe Safaris. The hunting is non stop fun from start to finish. The staff is full of helpful, kind and quality people and the lodge and meals are great. I really cannot find anything to criticize about the camp, the people or my hunting experience. So hunters experienced and inexperienced, I strongly recommend hunting at Ozondjahe Safaris. I truly had an excellent experience of a lifetime.”
Nathan P., Texas, USA.
“Thank you for a fantastic time! From the first moment we arrived until our parting day we were treated wonderfully. The accommodations were quiet and very clean. The staff was timely and prepared. Francois and Andries were fantastic PHs. The hunting was just as I had hoped it would be, fair to the hunter and the animal. I could not be anymore pleased.”
Craig W., Utah, USA.
“From the moment I arrived in Namibia and was met at the airport, it was clear that the client is the center focus at Ozondjahe Safaris. The staff was very welcoming and catered to our every request. Our PH Andries did a phenomenal job and was very flexible as our target species changed as the hunt and week progressed. This was a truly fascinating experience which has given me great memories and great trophies to take home with me.”
Khaleb R., Louisiana, USA.
“The staff is very professional and friendly. Our PH Andries Smit did everything he could to meet our expectations and needs. The bottom line is he delivered! In spite of the rainy season we still saw hundreds of animals daily. Thanks to our trackers, Ronnie and Frederick and Andries expertise, all of my animals were magnificent specimens. The accommodations were outstanding and the food was superb. The cook is a master chef. Our dinners ranged from escargot to Eland steaks. To say the least, I’ve been pampered and spoiled. You have made a lasting memory for me.”
Douglas Y., Utah, USA.
“Thank you for one of, if not the best, plains game hunt of my life. The lodge is 5 stars, the people 5 stars, the food is 5 stars and our PH Andries is a friend for life. If you are coming to Namibia, come to Ozondjahe Safaris, they are the best. Thanks again.”
Dave R., Utah, USA.
“My time here in Namibia was wonderful, thanks to the great weather, fantastic trophies and most of all your hunting team and house staff. Our hostess was very friendly, helpful and a real treat to come back to after a long day in the field. As for my PH Andries there is not enough ink in my pen to list out his talents or personal qualities, he is an amazing hunter and I look forward to hunting with him and his team again very soon. Thank you again for coordinating this unforgettable experience.”
Derek W., California, USA.
“I had a very nice hunting trip at Ozondjahe. I saw lots of game and only shot the animals I wanted. Andries was very helpful telling me the size of horns that I was looking for. He knew the area and animals very good. The hostess was very good. She helped get me medicine from the store for a very bad rash I got. She also took me shopping for gifts to take back to America, very helpful. Food and staff were very good.”
Wallace B., Ohio, USA.
“Très bon séjour et très agréable. Excellent territoire, une énorme diversité d’animaux. Excellent accueil. Guide très expérimenté. Très bon souvenirs que je recommanderai a tous mes amis. Je suis très satisfait et meme surpris du nombre et de la qualité du gibier tire. Une experience inoubliable que j’espère renouveler bientôt.”
Daniel D., Revin, France.
“I had a great time at Ozondjahe. The game was abundant and all of the animals I took were in great shape. The highlights of my hunting were taking a Hartmann’s Zebra in the mountains after hours of stalking and the 56 inch Kudu, also taking in the mountains. The entire house and field staff were most courteous and pleasant. The meals were great. Our gracious hostess attended to our every need. And lastly same words for Andries, an excellent PH, knowledgeable, pleasant and courteous. He has made my first safari the most memorable one. Given the opportunity, I will come back to hunt with him.”
Kurt L., Texas, USA.
“Not knowing what to expect in my first African hunting safari, Namibia, its’ friendly people, Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris, camp staff from PH to cook and service people and the game have far exceeded my expectation. I will recommend this to all my friends and hope to come back again.”
Mir A., Texas, USA.
“All the family have had unforgettable days at ozondjahe Safaris. The place is full of animals and perfectly prepared for hunting safaris. The people are absolutely nice, especially our PH who is really a good PH and has had an incredible patience with our 3 children. Thanks everyone for all, we’ll always remember these nice days.”
Carlos M., Spain.
“Je tiens à vous exprimer tous mes remerciements pour votre merveilleuse hospitalité dans votre ranch de Namibie.
Le séjour que j'y ai passé, avec mon ami JL B. , a été d'un agrément exceptionnel. Les paysages sont superbes, en particulier le massif montagneux où s'abrite les zèbres de montagne, les plaintes alentours et les longues allées sablonneuses dans la partie sud du ranch. Mais surtout votre accueil, a été du plus grand agrément pour moi. J'y ai trouvé la détente, la sérénité et le bien-être qui sont ce que l'on peut espérer de mieux dans notre monde contemporain.
Mon souvenir reconnaissant, Valéry GE”
Valéry GE, France
“I just wanted to send you an quick email to say how much we had enjoyed our safari at Ozondjahe. It is the most tremendous place and we were so well looked after by your excellent and very friendly staff. The lodge is very comfortable and the food delicious. The hunting really was excellent and between the two of us on a 2×1 hunt, I think we just about got every trophy we were after, which is pretty amazing in only 8 days and in the extreme heat of late November. Andries was really a revelation. I have hunted with a number of PHs, all of whom I thought were excellent, but none of whom comes close to Andries. He is relaxed, fun, entertaining, extremely knowledgable, very good company and a superb PH. He really made it an outstanding hunt. You asked me to let you know if I had any worries or complaints and I honestly can’t think of a single thing. The attention to detail and sheer professionalism of your team made it an incredible, unforgettable experience. Many, many thanks.”
William P., United Kingdom.
“Ozondjahe’s vast area offers a diverse habitat, full of game. The trophy quality is outstanding. I would recommend this hunt for the seasoned hunter or the first timer looking for a new hunting destination. Andries and his team run a first class operation. Until the next time!”
Kevin D., United Kingdom.
“Just a short note to tell you what a wonderful time we had. My children and I fell in love with Ozondjahe and Namibia. What a beautiful part of the world! As I know you will soon be discussing specifics with my husband, I will only say that our seven year old is still walking on air after having shot his warthog. The staff at Ozondjahe was very kind and helpful. I now think of Francois as a member of the family. You are very fortunate to have such a gifted and enjoyable PH at the ranch. He was wonderful with our children. I hope one day we will return! All the best!”
Kyle and Sam T., Wyoming, USA.
“I wanted to let you know that Melissa and I had a fantastic time at Ozondjahe. On the flight over, I told my wife I was a bit concerned that I had been looking forward to the trip for so long and had built it up in my mind so much that I hoped I was not disappointed. It seems impossible, but the experience not only met my expectations but greatly exceeded them. I was so enthralled with the country, the animals, the birds, etc. that I think I was on sensory overload for the first few days at least. Your PH Andries was not only a super hunter but he was a great host and it was very enjoyable to spend time with him even the long quiet hours in the leopard blind. The rest of the staff was also super. Melissa said she always felt welcome, even while out hunting. My first animal was a zebra (on the second day) and I made a poor shot and was pretty discouraged when we had not found it after several hours, but Andries and the trackers stayed with it. We recovered it late in the day probably two miles from where I had shot it was an amazing tracking job. I would have been devastated if I had wounded and lost my first African animal. Their persistence was not only the proper ethical hunting thing to do, but also made the day thrilling rather than a bitter disappointment. As we discussed on the phone, the leopard was not completely cooperative but Andries changed the strategy a bit and I took it on the sixth day of my hunt. Of course the leopard is a great trophy, and the impala and warthog (which I was initially not too interested in, but had a chance for an exceptional animal and I am now very happy I took it) I think are far better than average and my remaining animals I consider very good trophy quality. I still can’t believe I took the seven animals in 11 days and had the 12th day to do a little wing shooting for sand grouse, which was a kick. Despite the initial uncertainties in getting the Etosha trip set up, it worked out fine and was another highlight of the trip. I have been home less than a week and am already trying to figure out when and how I can return to Africa. Thanks again!!”
Paul Brisso, California, USA.
“Going on an African hunting safari was a life long dream and Ozondjahe made the trip a wonderful experience. I have many memories to treasure and re-live. I can’t imagine anything that could have been done better. The staff was wonderful and the facilities top notch. Most of all, the hunting team was absolutely great!! The PH satisfied all our requests and more. He and his team demonstrated their professionalism in locating, tracking, and handling the excellent trophy animals we took. Everything exceeded my wildest dreams.”
John F., Virginia, USA.
“I certainly enjoyed my twelve days of hunting with my PH. His patience and skills allowed me to take mature trophy animals that should all qualify for the SCI gold and my 57″ Kudu should easily qualify for Rowland Ward. The property is a wonderful mix of terrains with the animals having the clear advantage. Certainly the food and accommodations were beyond my expectations. This safari will always be remembered as a great experience.”
L. Monty L., Georgia, USA.
“This was the most amazing hunting trip of my life. My PH and tracker were great. They are truly talented individuals who spare no expense to make your hunt truly exceptional. The house staff are also great in making you feel right at home. I will leave here with memories to last a life time and hunting lessons that will never be forgotten.”
David De La R., South Carolina, USA.
“Wonderful place. Plenty of game. The Professional Hunter tries his utmost to get you the trophy you wish for. He works very hard for the best quality trophies. Accommodations are”First Class”, with bungalows and en suite bathrooms like a luxury hotel, with swimming pool outside in mature gardens. Food is excellent, different dishes every night, all well prepared and delicious. Laundry service is excellent, clothes cleaned and ironed like in Europe, to Western standards. I would rate Ozondjahe as an excellent hunting destination for a good range of plains game animals with services par excellence!”
Mark R., United Kingdom.
“I truly had a unique and wonderful experience with Ozondjahe Safaris. The grounds are mature, varied and very inviting, making for great relaxation after the hunt. Meals were especially delicious, and I got great pleasure from tasting several kinds of wild game during dinner. Staff members were all polite and helpful, ensuring none of my needs were left unfulfilled… and always promptly. My lodging was very good too… clean, inviting, and quite comfortable. Most of all though, the quantity and variety of game was outstanding! I easily saw several hundreds head of animals throughout a typical hunting day. This was no doubt in large part to our superb PHs, trackers, and drivers… all extremely professional with unquestionable expertise. Again I had an excellent experience with Ozondjahe Safaris and hope to come again in the future. Very sincerely,”
Kirk P. B., Nebraska, USA.
“I was very impressed with the efficient arrangements for our trip. The staff was friendly and helpful. The lodge was decorated with trophies. The bungalows were very neat and clean. the meals were excellent. The PHs knew their business. There was an abundance of a wide variety of game and fowl. My wife and 10 year old son very much enjoyed Ozondjahe and Etosha. I highly recommend this outfitter and hope to return with my father in the future. We strongly appreciated the kindness we were shown. We certainly enjoyed the beautiful grounds surrounding the lodge.”
Randel S. B., Washington, USA.
“I can sum up why my wife and I will return to Ozondjahe in three words: “Trophy Quality” and “Professionalism”. The quality of the animals here is remarkable, the staff friendly, the accommodations everything you need and more. Plus, name another game ranch you can afford with a chef on staff. The hunting experience in Africa so often comes down to the attitude of the Professional Hunter and I can say that Andries Smit is one of the good ones. We came to Ozondjahe without really knowing what we were getting into but we are leaving with friends here; taking with us memories and magnificent trophies. We had a wonderful time at Ozondjahe. Andries is a marvelous PH and I would recommend him to anyone. All in all we had a ball. I don’t want to sound corny but to us it really was the trip of a life time. Thanks for helping set it up.”
Michael and Deb K., Wichita, Kansas.
“This is our last hunting day and we got the final animal on our list of ten. My son Tim and I had the time of our lives. Seven days doing what we love to do in one of the most beautiful and natural surroundings I could imagine. The Professional Hunter Andries and the hunting party were awesome. He was knowledgeable, professional and patient. Thanks Andries! I would recommend this trip to any and all who love hunting. The accommodations were perfect. The food and service wonderful. Thank you all!!”
Joe W., Nevada, USA.
“I had a wonderful time here at Ozondjahe Safaris, everyone is very nice and there is great service. I got every animal I wanted and they were trophy quality. I would recommend this place to everyone that wants to go on an African Safari. It was an awesome experience.”

“I had a beautiful hunt, with success. I shot the species I hoped to: Kudu, Gemsbok, Blue Wildebeest, Impala and Warthog. The territory is large with plenty of animals. About the non-hunting activities; our wives enjoyed the excursions: flight over the Waterberg Plateau, photo safari on wagon pulled by horses, Cheetah conservation center. We will all keep excellent memories of Ozondjahe. A big thank you to all of the team for their kindness and professionalism.
Les accompagnatrices ont beaucoup apprécies les excursions avec Mary qui a été très efficace et vraiment très sympathique. Nous garderons tous et toutes un excellent souvenir a Ozondjahe. Un grand merci a toute l’équipe (Andries, Francois, Ronie, Joseph, Victoria and Theodora, les cuisiniers…) pour leur gentillesse et leur professionnalisme.”
Christian and Claudine G., Belgium.
“For me Ozondjahe is a really special place that I will continue to return to again and again. My first hunting safari in Africa was here. I proposed to my wife here. I’ve been back 3 times and each time is special. I have so many good memories, not only is the hunting amazing, the food and lodging fantastic but the family has become close friends. Since my first hunt in Africa, I have gone on to hunt over 230 species around the world but Ozondjahe holds a special place in my heart!”
Matt W., California, USA.
“Hunting in Africa was once only a dream for American sportsmen. Now a plains game hunt is as affordable as a Western elk hunt, while travel to the bush has become relatively quick and painless. The proliferation of hunting outfitters in South Africa and Namibia, however, leaves some travelers scratching their heads. “With whom should I book?” I’ve taken several plains game safaris and prefer Namibia over South Africa. Among outfitters, Ozondjahe ranks near the top. Its professional hunters are capable and keen to bring you shooting. Accommodations and food will leave you wishing for the same at home. And there’s a wide variety of game, with plenty of acreage to ensure a fair-chase hunt. It’s easy to reach from Windhoek, a great pick for a first safari and sure to please even seasoned African hunters.”
Wayne Van Z., Washington, USA.
“Ozondjahe Safaris surpassed our expectations from the aspect of hunting, accommodations, hospitality and activities which were non-hunting. While I was hunting my wife and friends enjoyed their day trips and overnight trips. Our meals and accommodations were excellent. In my hunting trips I was surprised by both the quantity and quality of the animals I saw. The trophies that my PH selected for me and I shot were all 10 to 15 years of age and included: Gemsbok, Impala, Cape Eland, Red Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Zebra and Kudu. My Male Leopard was 4 years of age and I shot it on the ground, in the grass, in the sun.”
Richard R., Alberta, Canada.
“It was my first hunt in Africa and the better hunt I ever made. The place, the ranch is wonderful, the people and the staff are the best, I really recommend this place. The animals roam free in a big ranch; you would never notice there is a ranch. The food, the bedrooms, the lodge is supreme. I am an outfitter in Mexico, www.balammexico.com, I really recommend this ranch for hunting.” Alfredo Alfredo L., Mexico.
“Toute ma famille se joint à moi pour vous dire combien nous avons été touché par votre accueil si chaleureux.
Ce fut une grande joie de passer ces deux jours avec vous.
Vous avez, sans doute, compris que vous avez comblé des chasseurs passionnés en leur organisant du très beaux et nombreux gibiers. Nous avons tous pu tirer à l'arc ou à la carabine notre premier gibier africain!
De tout cœur merci.”
“Je ne sais comment vous remercier pour ce séjour dans ce superbe domaine, pour votre hospitalité, votre gentillesse et votre disponibilité ainsi que de m'avoir fait découvrir ma première chasse africaine au grand gibier.
J'ai été enthousiasmé par la qualité du site ainsi que par son environnement, surtout la qualité et la densité de votre cheptel animalier. En un mot, j'ai vécu en votre compagnie huit jours extraordinaires. Très amicalement et merci encore.”
Jean-Paul Falchi, France
“Le soleil avait lancé toutes ses flèches enflammées.
Les oryx, zèbres, phacochères pressés fendant la brise dans un élan spontané.
Au mirador toutes les femmes sont belles et médusées.
À l'aube elles contemplent d'un regard émerveillé.
Les girafes silencieuse qui s'abreuvent esseulées.
Dans le bush un bruit strident à raisonné.
Pour l'équilibre de la faune un gnou est tombé.
L'eau de la piscine n'a pas cessé de danser.
Au rythme des champs des gangas effrénés.
La table ronde, tournante a bien fonctionné. Chacun se servant à volonté et félicité. Avant de se bercer sur le hamac et se dorer.
Le soir le bleu turquoise du ciel nous a sidéré.
Pour se muer en un espace d'étoiles criblées.
Non loin du Kalahari a Otjiwarongo, une brève escapade désertique nous à revitaliser.
Dans la vie il y a souvent des coups dures, parfois les coups bas, mais ici, il n'y a que des koudoux.
Pour reprendre un mot du maître de céans c'est "super”.”
Jacques P., France
“J’ai vécu une semaine de rêve pour moi ce fut une découverte inoubliable, UNIQUE et FORTE.
Les mots me manquent pour vous remercier Jean Charles, vous m'avez fait découvrir les plaisirs de la chasse aux gros gibiers. Daniel m'a accompagnée sur ce chemin de la découverte avec un grand plaisir.
Tout cela c'est à vous que je le dois, à votre grand souci de faire plaisir et de donner et communiquer votre passion.
Merci pour cette semaine de rêve en si bonne compagnie, je suis encore sur le coup une grande émotion.
Sincères amitiés avec ma plus grande admiration pour un territoire de chasse aussi prestigieux.”
Philippe & Danielle, France
We are proud in what we do.
