    It has come to our attention, that certain individuals advertise hunting of so called ‘problem animals’ in Namibia during Hunting Conventions.

    Please be aware that the selling and marketing of a so called ‘problem animal’ is illegal.
    No ‘problem’ leopard may be trophy hunted, sold or exported. Solely the Minister of Environment and Tourism may confirm the status of a ‘problem animal’ and such animal needs to be specifically identified and destroyed by the owner of such property or his appointed representative.

    Any lion or elephant officially declared as ‘problem animal’ may only be offered as a trophy hunt at short notice and only after receipt of official declaration from the Ministry via a permit.

    Further to this, your marketing material needs to specify that any leopard may only be offered subject to receipt of a leopard tag and hunted exclusively in the area to which the tag was allocated.

    The onus rests upon the Namibian Outfitter to assure that his/her agent or representative advertises accordingly.
