Etosha Hills Hunting is an approximately 50 000 hectares private reserve located in the north-west of Namibia bordering almost 70km with Etosha National Park. The terrain and vegetation varies from savannah with Mopani trees to open grassland and mountainous areas. The reserve is about 520km from the international airport which is an approximately 6 hour drive by car. The reserve has an airstrip and charter flights can be arranged.
On Etosha Hills we believe in ethical hunting/ fair chase through walk & stalk. We conserve through selective trophy hunting. Hunting is only a measure of sustainable utilization.
A typical day on Etosha Hills Hunting will commence as follows: Starting with an early breakfast whereafter you will depart on an openview vehicle for the days hunt. Drinks are available on the vehicle and you will return to the lodge around mid day for lunch when it starts to become hot. Depending on where on the property the hunt is, bush lunch might be arranged. Around 3 O'Clock you can enjoy some cake and something to drink before departing for some more hunting. You will then return to the lodge after sundown for a comforting 3 course dinner.
