Kunene River Hunting Area

My most exclusive hunting area is the Kunene Conservancy far in the north of Namibia. Only a few safari hunters each year set foot on this place.

The Kunene Conservancy is one of the only places that free roaming black impala can be hunted.

It is an area of 2700 square km that is covered by Mopani bush, big mountains like the Zebra Mountain,  and fountains or springs providing fresh water. The Conservancy has its most northern border against Angola where the Kunene River forms the Namibia/Angola border. Here is also a stronghold of really big crocodiles that can be hunted.

The safari hunting and conservation of the Conservancy are managed by the Ovahimba people. Here you still can see game and livestock graze together and are respected by the people. Most of the people in the area live in 3 big traditional villages. The rest of the Conservancy land is still “Africa as it was.”

Accommodations in this Conservancy are in a lodge.

If you are scheduling a safari in another of our areas, you can add hunting in this area to it. Because this is an exclusive area hunted by only a few hunters per year, please contact me for any more information about the area and hunts in the area.

Hunts in the Kunene are 5 to 14 days. For leopard, allow a minimum of 10 days. For crocodile, allow a minimum of 7 days.
