Has anyone hunted with or know about these guys? Keerweder Safaris - Namibia
I'm trying to narrow down some options for my first plains game hunt in Namibia. So far from the responses I have gotten from outfitters I like them the best and they are offering me a fairly good deal for 8 days (7 hunting) with the following trophies.
1 x Oryx
1 x Kudu
1 x Impala
1 x Red Hartebeest
Here is some info they sent me about their operation in answer to my questions about hunting area size and if it is adjacent, low fence - free range, and how many hunters in camp...
Here is a link to their website Keerweder Safaris Namibia : Hunting Safaris
Our own property is 7800 ha big (about 20000 acres). The concession area (surrounding our own property) is about 100 000 ha big. So the game will be sufficient, and you can be guaranteed a good hunt.
We do have plenty of animals of the species you are interested in.
Some areas have fences (up to the highest being 1.8 meters) but most species can either jump over or go under these fences. The main reason for this fence is to keep blue wildebeest from cattle farmed areas because they can carry some diseases that are dangerous to the cattle. SO I feel pretty safe to say that it is a free range area, since the area with the fence is about 4000 ha.
Remember to ask this question as well to people because with some you have to travel a few kilometers before you get to start hunting.
I would recommend a 7 day hunt. This should theoretically give you enough time for an Impala, Red Hartebeest, Kudu & Oryx.
We only take in one group of hunters at a time. So if it is only you coming alone, then it will only be you in camp for the hunt.
I have heard from one of their references and I will be contacting more..
What do you guys think?
