Your Upcoming Trip

What to Bring

Clothing
  • 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
  • 2 pairs of cotton type trousers
  • 3 changes of long sleeved shirts
  • 2 T-shirts or short sleeved shirts
  • 2 pairs of shorts (summer months)
  • Socks and underwear
  • Sunglasses of good quality are also recommended
  • A hat is a necessity and we suggest a large, broad brimmed hat; although we also provide a complimentary cap should you wish to use that
  • Sweater/lightweight jacket for evenings in camp
  • 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).
  • Please keep in mind that we do have a daily laundry service, helping you to keep your luggage to the minimum
  • 1pair high boots (not new) –  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.
  • 1 pair of comfortable shoes for evenings in camp
  • Sunscreen of SPF 30 to 50 plus is an absolute must. Please ensure that you have ample supply
  • Gaiters (we sell the best ones!)
  • Scarf and gloves for cold mornings and evenings in open vehicles
  • Some light clothes for the warmer months is also a must (Feb-April, and October-November)

  • Adapters and converters – We have a power supply of 220 volt
  • Extra pair of prescription glasses
  • Camera, lenses and flash attachment with dust proof bag
  • Good binoculars (8 x 40 power). 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)
  • Shooting sticks (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.)
  • Reading and writing materials
  • Locks for luggage
  • Flashlight
  • Zip lock bags for cameras, etc.
