Afrika Jag Safaris
Bow Hunting Safaris in Namibia
An opportunity of a lifetime!
Contact us to experience a personalized Namibian bow hunting Safari...
Our trophy hunting season runs from February to November. All species are true wild African game. The best months for hunting in Namibia are from July to November, during our dry season.
Africa Jag Safaris started in 2005 with bow hunting Safaris. The success rates are high and we have set aside certain areas for bow hunting only.
Bow hunting takes place mostly by ambush out of ground and elevated blinds. The hides are located at areas frequented by game like watering points and salt licks. We occasionally use walk and spot stalking methods as well.
The ranch was converted into a game farm about 15 years ago, but hunting was not allowed until recently. Top trophies are available because of the initial decision to go for exclusivity. A high percentage of trophies taken at our area qualify for NAPHA medals. The ranch is populated mainly with game and is partly fenced.
Although our weather is extremely good during this period, early mornings and late nights from May to August can be cold. Warm, durable and comfortable clothing is essential for bow hunting during these times.
During the winter days the temperatures are warm and cool, comfortable clothing that still offers protection against the harsh environment is required. A hat and sun block is essential for protection.
