Our terrain and trophy species are so varied that we prefer to customize your hunting safari to fit your individual priorities. Once you have decided on the species you wish to hunt we will recommend the number of hunting days to meet your expectations for the variety and quality of hunting trophies you desire. On average, plains game hunting safaris as well as bowhunting safaris are usually between 9 to 12 hunting days, however we have no minimum number of hunting days required (Except for a few selected species). Predator hunting for Leopard and Cheetah require a minimum of 12 hunting days (13 nights in camp).
Each hunt is adapted to provide choice and variety of safari hunting methods, including bow hunting safaris. According to your quarry, preliminary spotting may be done by 4×4 vehicle with closer approach on foot, the spot and stalk hunting technique, stalking and tracking, baiting for Leopard hunts, waiting from one of thirty strategically located permanent blinds or from a makeshift hide.

Carefully selected freelance Professional Hunters, familiar with Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris territory, are available for larger hunting parties requiring more than two Professional Hunters.
To ensure a trouble free and safe hunting safari, we have five reliable well-maintained and fully equipped four-wheel drive vehicles which are used for hunting as well as backup vehicles. Cool boxes containing water and other refreshments and snacks will be brought along on each vehicle for your needs and enjoyment.
Arms and Ammunition
While most shots are taken from within an average of 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.
We encourage you to bring your own rifle which you are the most comfortable and proficient using.
If you are unable or do not wish to travel with your own firearm we have a selection of rifles and shotguns in different calibers that are available for rental by the day.
RIFLES (one of each):
- 300 Winchester Magnum
- 8x68 Mauser
- H&H 375
SHOTGUNS (one of each):
- Benelli 12 Gauge
- Baikal side by side 12 Gauge
Rifle sight-in will be done prior to the commencement of your hunting safari at our well equipped 100 yard (100 meter) shooting range to ensure your rifle shoots properly before you go in search of that dream trophy.
Depending on how many animals you aim to shoot, about sixty rounds of ammunition per caliber should be sufficient for a twelve-day hunt. One hundred rounds of ammunition per firearm is the maximum allowable. We think it best that you bring some type of wearable rifle cartridge carrier.
Good shot placement is more important than rifle power. Any caliber .270 or higher may be used for most plains game hunting but we strongly recommend a rifle well suited for African antelope such as a .300 Winchester Magnum, 338, 7mm, 30-06 or similar caliber rifle or higher with premium soft nose ammunition. Ammunition choice of bullet should be swift-A Frame, Woodleigh, Barnes X, Nosler partition or Hornady soft nose. A good quality variable rifle scope with a 3×9 power will be adequate. Handguns, automatic weapons and solid point cartridges are not permitted in Namibia.
