The Best Hunting Safari Experience That Namibia Has To Offer
Hunting Safaris in Namibia
One of the reasons why so many people choose to hunt with Omatako Hunting Trails is that one stays within the picturesque setting of the actual hunting area, which saves an enormous amount of travel time. All the huntable species belong to us and therefore, one doesn’t need to worry about the quota system. By Namibian law one is allowed to hunt 2 trophy animals per species.
On request other species may be hunted in different concessions if booked in advance. Please enquire about species you are looking for when booking. Note that good game birds are also available when in season – depending on the time of year.
Omatako Ranch was selected from only a few farms in Namibia by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (M.E.T) to host Black Rhino under a custodianship program. The Rhino are often spotted and make for exciting viewing but is not available for hunting.

Hunting is done in the central and northwestern parts of Namibia, 90 minutes drive north of the capital city, Windhoek. Omatako, the main hunting area (16 000 ha or 40 000 acres), is part of the Ombotozu conservancy, which spans more than 800 000 acres. Most of the hunting is done on Omatako, which has 33 game species available for hunting. Depending on the circumstances, one can also hunt in the conservancy with permission of the owner. Guests have the option to hunt in a low fenced area, which is a 15 min drive from Omatako Hunting Trails. The hunting area totals 20 000 ha or +/- 50 000 acres.
The advantage of hunting with Omatako is that one saves a lot of time traveling between hunting areas and of course you’re not restricted to hunting quotas. On the hunt you will be guided by a team of PH’s, which includes me and Johan Jr. If more PH’s are required we make use of a freelance PH who is familiar with the area to be hunted.
Our hunting season officially starts on the 1st of February until the end of November, for rifle hunting.
Namibia is one of the only countries in Africa that has a medal and minimum scoring system. That protects the hunter from shooting animals that does not make the minimum score, which could not be exported. Also to show the hunter how good his trophy is. Here on Omatako Hunting Trails you can expect to shoot 90% gold medal trophies. We also pride ourselves in top game genetics, with a number of Trophies in the Namibia Top 10.
