BOWHUNTING


We also offer the truly African Bow-Hunter Experience, whether be a traditional or compound or re-curve bow you like to hunt with. Bow-hunters will be hunting with a registered bow-hunter who knows the hunting field and has the skills and acquired knowledge of bow-hunting the African plains game.
 
Whether it is your first time on a bow-hunt in Namibia or whether you are a skilled bow-hunter, we will make sure that you have the bow-hunting experience of a lifetime. We also accommodate women and children who enjoys the pleasures of bow-hunting and we can assure you that it will be a quality family experience.

Blind Blind


We have available on our hunting grounds a 20m, 30m and 40m shooting range to practice the bows and get it set for the hunt.

We make use of the walk-and-stalk method for those hunters who enjoys the trill of slowly moving up closer and closer to its trophy, but we also make use of the method of shooting from a blind at a comfortable position where one awaits the trophy and builds up the excitement of knowing that the trophy will be bagged within the next few minutes…….

Blind Blind


All our permanent blinds are build half way into the ground, providing the bow-hunter with enough space to be able to get the best position for shooting the trophy. The blinds are all build from the natural materials available from the hunting grounds and the nearby surroundings and are build in such a way, to minimize all sounds and movement that can be noticed by the game standing nearby at the water troughs, maximum distance of shooting at about 30m, but the game move around at the water in a quite relaxed manner and are in a shooting position of less than 30m away, most of the time.

We also assist of a portable blind that can be moved around as the need may be, to get closer to the game that does not spend enough time at the water points.

The bow-hunting season runs from the first day of February until the last day of November each year. In the rainy season (first 3-4 months) we experience more success with the walk and stalk method as the game gets enough water from the hunting grounds and do not visit the water points that regularly.
In the drier months, we have been more successful in using the method of shooting from a blind, because the game are tended to be more thirsty and visit the watering points at regular intervals.
