Hunting in Namibia
The trophy hunting season in Namibia starts from the 1st of February and closes on the 30th of November. During December and January the hunting season is closed.
Why Hunting in Namibia?
Ekuja Hunting Safari is the perfect destination for first time hunters, seasoned hunters. Our main camp is situated on the banks of the Black Nossob River, 63miles (100km) from Namibia’s National Airport; Hosea Kutako International Airport – only a short hours drive from the airport to Ekuja.
Our hunting territory consists of a variety of differing terrains such as bush land and open savannahs teaming with huge herds of Wildebeest, Oryx, Impala, Eland and more.
There are over 15,000 free range wild animals living naturally within our densely populated game-only territory. We boast unsurpassed trophy quality with over 30 hunt able species such as Greater Kudu, Cape Eland, Gemsbok, Blue and Black Wildebeest, Zebra, Impala, Warthog as well as Leopard and Cheetah just to name a few.
You will discover that Namibia is not only beautiful with a pleasant climate, it is the easiest, stable, safe and clean hunter friendly country in Africa.
Namibia Weather and Climate
The best time for Hunting in Namibia is during the cool, dry winter months from March/April through to October/November.
Winter will reach the maximums of 20ºC (69ºF) during the mid-day and minimums of 6ºC – 2C (43ºF-36F) in June/July, where early mornings and evenings are crisp with frost.
Namibia’s summer months are from November to March.
During these months the landscapes are more verb-ant green, as this is our rainy season. So, expect height temperatures and heavy downpours.

Adequetly before your departure, confirm with the airlines their procedures in tranporting firearms, and if necessary any prior forms to be completed before departure, for handling and transfer purposes.
Book/Check in Luggage and Firearms Directly to Namibia – We will always recommend booking in luggage and firearms straight through to Namibia, Hosea Kutako International Airport (WHK), even when you have a layover in another country, on your way to Namibia for your hunt. Recent regulations and the world’s ‘anti-gun friendliness’, have made travelling with firearms a time-consuming and unpleasant process.
