PLAINSGAME HUNTING IN NAMIBIA

oryxGras Ranch Namibia

This Hunting Ranch is ± 145 miles (232km) south of Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. The hunting territories cover over 37500 hectares (over 92,000 acres, about 145 sq. miles) of arid bush land with savannah. It is known for its abundant wildlife and majestic views. Considered one of the most beautiful game ranches in Namibia. It is very well known in Germany.

Accommodations

The main house, which was built in 1906, is a luxurious and comfortable haven. Here our guests can relax with a drink and ponder the fruits of a successful day of hunting before indulging in a delicious traditional African meal. We will cater for any special requests by prior arrangements. In addition to the main house, we have bush camping on the bank of the Fish River, which runs through the ranch for ± 17 miles (28km). Hunters can sit at the fire on the riverbank and enjoy BBQ while watching the Southern Hemisphere stars.

The Season

The hunting season opens in February and runs through November, during which time we only have 20 safari bookings available. We take pride in the quality of our hunts. Rather than packing in as many safaris as possible we concentrate on a few first-rate hunts, which allow our clients to get the high quality trophies that they seek.

 

The Wildlife

The ranch is blessed with a generous number of waterholes, rivers and open grasslands. Gemsbuck (Oryx), Hartebeest, Zebra, Springbok, Wildebeest, Blesbok and Kudu are amongst the wildlife species that profit from this abundance. You can see this magnificent array of wildlife congregating near the river, especially during the dry winter months, May through September. Amongst the profusion of wildlife on the game ranch are over 15 species of antelope, ranging from the tallest animal on earth, the Giraffe to the small Steenbuck. Namibia is home to a multitude of unique and interesting creatures and is known as being a veritable bird life paradise. It hosts the world’s largest and fastest land bird, the Ostrich and the heaviest flying bird, the Kori Bustard.

The Hunt

Guided by our experienced Professional Hunter with his team of trackers and a skilled skinner, you can choose to hunt on your own (1×1), alongside a friend (2×1), or accompanied by a non-hunting guest. Each safari is specially adapted to provide choice and variety of hunting methods. These include bow hunting, using 4×4 hunting vehicles with approaching and tracking by foot or waiting for game from a blind or from a high tower near a waterhole. To compliment your big game safari, there may be opportunity depending on the time of year, to hunt upland birds such as Doves, Grouse and African Guinea Fowl. If you still have time left, there is fresh water fishing in the Fish River.
