Overview of Namibia Dangerous Game Safari - Caprivi Strip
If you long for one of the last amazing free range Namibia dangerous game safari properties in the southern portion of Africa, look no more. As we entered this property on our recent check out trip, our jaws dropped as we passed numerous trophy Kudu, Sable, herds of hundreds of Cape Buffalo, mature trophy elephants, Hippos, Roan and massive Crocodile.
The Bwabwata National Park West runs along the Okavango River with borders on Angola and Botswana. This hunting area encompasses a staggering 700,000 plus acres of prime hunting land.
This land is home to some of the best elephant, buffalo and plains game populations left in Africa, with a very small hunting quota, ensuring exceptional trophy quality rarely seen.
Your veteran professional hunters have been hunting since 2010 and the Caprivi area for nearly two decades. They have experience in virtually every area of the Caprivi Strip. This is the property that they choose to hunt because of the quality and quantity of game as well as the distance from local people. They have the exclusive rights to this area until 2020.
Since this outfitter has been hunting this property since 2010, they have developed amazing sand road access around the property allowing for spotting of tracks and access to areas for those that may not be able to walk for many miles in a day. During your hunt, the entire team will be assisting in the locating process.
Your home for this hunt will be in a well appointed tented camp located along the river set high above. Each tent has ensuite bathrooms with hot showers and flush toilets. Night sounds of hippo’s calling, elephants crashing the trees and wake to the morning lions roaring.
Look at the testimonials for some samples of what hunters have experienced with this outfitter.
As with all of our African properties, private aircraft are available for transfers if you prefer.
Take a break from your hunting day and enjoy some Tiger fishing on the Okavango River.
