Correct clothing is of utmost importance, and is essential to a successful hunt. We recommend any camouflaged clothing in the yellow, brown and green tones. Two sets of cotton type trousers and three changes of long sleeved shirts is sufficient. Please keep in mind that we do have a daily laundry service, helping you to keep your luggage to the minimum. A warm jacket is also essential, as early mornings and evenings can become quite cold, especially in the winter months (May-August). One or two sets of comfortable and warm clothing plus sneakers for around the campfire at night would also be recommended. Some light clothes for the warmer months is also a must (Feb-April, and October-November).
The most important aspect concerning hunting boots or shoes is to ensure they are walked-in properly before the hunt. Hunting is conducted on foot and therefore comfort is key. If possible, a high rise type of boot would be preferable, as it supports your ankles at all times and protects from bites. If you hunt in the Zambezi strip, make sure to bring along two pair of boots so that one has enough time to dry out.
A hat is a necessity and we suggest a broad rimmed hat; although we also provide a complimentary cap should you wish to use that.
Sunscreen of SPF 30 to 50 plus is an absolute must. Please ensure that you have ample supply.
Sunglasses of good quality are also recommended.
EQUIPMENT & EXTRAS
Camera with dust-proof bag.
We have a power supply of 220 volt. Please ensure that you bring the necessary adapters and converters.
Binoculars (8×40) are recommended. Please note that our PH’s do not allow the hunters to use binoculars while stalking on a hunt.
Range finders (bow hunting)
Bow hunting spare parts and accessories. (We have a supply of the most essential spare parts, but keep in mind that Namibia is limited in their range of equipment)
We have our own shooting sticks, but should you feel more comfortable using your own, you are more than welcome. We also want to stress that if you are not familiar with shooting from a stick, you should practice this beforehand.
Although Namibia is very clean and safe, please visit your medical practitioner regarding medications and vaccinations as required. Veronica and Kalakwa are NOT located in a malaria area. If you are hunting dangerous game with us in the Zambezi strip, make sure to take your malaria prophylaxis.
