Your Namibian safari will include plains, and in some cases dangerous game, or even both. Currently Estreux Safaris have hunting concessions in the Central, Central North, North Western, and North Eastern parts of Namibia. Your trophy list of preferred animals will determine the choice of hunting area/s. Whatever you as our valued client decide, we will assist you in finding the right combination of hunting days and hunting area/s as to experience your ultimate African Safari.
Estreux Safaris operates in two main concessions: i.e. Kaokoveld and Caprivi
In both these wilderness concessions, all game is free range with NO fences.
For plains game we use our Kaokoveld wilderness concession and for dangerous game the Caprivi wetland concessions as mentioned below. All game in the Kaokoveld and Caprivi is on a strict quota available from the Ministry of Environment and Tourism, therefore it is imperative to book early to prevent disappointment. We do however have other concessions, (Free range and Fenced) but this is mainly to offer game not found in our two main concessions or where we have limited quotas available and/or for sustainability purposes; as we are committed to the long-term sustainability of our game and to ensure the best possible trophy quality. Due to the habitat diversity of Namibia it is impossible to hunt all of the endemic species in one specific area of the country. Estreux Safaris is constantly sourcing new areas to hunt for the best possible trophies in their natural environment.
With regard to Dangerous game, Estreux Safaris in conjunction with our partner offers Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Leopard, Crocodile and Hippopotamus. Depending on available quotas as agreed by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism limited quotas on Lion and White Rhino are also offered.
Estreux Safaris guarantees exclusivity in all their concessions, with you and your hunting party having the entire concession to yourselves. We only take one group at a time.
Our concessions cover approximately 870 000ha or 2,100 000acres with more than 35 species available in very remote and pristine "wilderness" areas.
Your hunt will also benefit marginal communities in the north-western and north-eastern corners of Namibia. Estreux Safaris is committed to the long-term conservation and social upliftment of the people in the areas where we hunt.
