    Air Namibia scheduled flights: from Eros Airport in Windhoek to Mpacha Airport in Katima Mulilo (approx. $ 450.00, return trip). Flights depart from Windhoek in the morning and return from Katima in the afternoon. Currently flights are on Mondays - Sundays except Saturdays. The price of this flight might be drastically reduced when booked in connection with an Air Namibia flight from Frankfurt, Germany to Windhoek, well in advance. The accommodation in Windhoek(bed and breakfast) on arrival and departure day is highly recommended as Air Namibia changes the Katima flights' schedule very often and the flight is regularly not on time.

    Info on the Own Use (O/U) or Traditional Authority (T/A) elephant, buffalo & hippo hunts:
    O/U or T/A animals officially means that the animal can be hunted by the conservancy for the meat value only. As we do not want the members of the conservancy to run around and just shoot stuff, we have bought the quota from them. That way the conservancy generates some money as well from such animals (idea of paying for these animals came from WWF). Usually these hunts take place around conservancy meetings or traditional authorities' festivals. As the O/U & T/A quota in Dzoti is quite big, we also do the hunts in the time the animals do a lot of damage to the crop fields to satisfy the community. The animals are hunted legally on an own use hunting permit authorized by nature conservation. Nothing can be exported. It is a opportunity for hunters which do not have the budget to hunt big game or for big game hunters that shoot the animals for the hunting experience.
    There is no difference between O/U and T/A, that concerns the client. It is only burocratic details between the ministry of environment and the conservancy. The conservancy informs us if we have to deliver meat by the community or if the meat has to go to the traditional palace (a grass hut like all others....) therefore we always refer to these animals as O/U animals.

    Priority to find/hunt O/U buffalo BULLS (not cows!):
    1. OLD animals
    2. with broken horn(s) (which are very few around)
    3. Horns under 38"
    4. if time runs out we will shoot a younger bull of any size (which has never happened)

    Out of 18 buffalo hunts only ONE hunt took longer than 4 hunting days! This information is only to state that there is always buffalo around in this area.

    Priority to find/hunt O/U Hippo:
    1. Mature bull on land
    2. Younger bull on land/water (we have shot a couple in 2 - 3 feet of water)
    4. Cow in water/land (not been necessary yet)

    Relax late afternoon after the hunt catching the mouthwatering bream for supper or listen to the chattering off the birds returning to their nests.
    Once you see this magnificent place you will definitely return again and again!
