    Kowas Hunting Safaris: Our Pride & Dedication

    Kowas Hunting Safaris is a privately owned hunting safari operation, situated in the central part of Namibia, Africa. Namibia one of Africa’s best kept secrets, ranked among a few countries that have consistently enjoyed peace and stability, with virtually no civil strife resulting from political turmoil.

    Kowas Hunting Safaris was established in 1999 on the Kowas ranch, in the Dordabis area, by Danie & Ansie Strauss, who is the sole-owners of Kowas. Kowas was transformed from a cattle-ranch to a Wildlife-only Private Game Reserve, turning the owners’ lifelong dream into a reality. This dream and passion transformed the unique landscape of Kowas into a natural habitat where more than 16 antelope species, 7 predator species and 200 bird species roam freely in pristine wilderness, a reflection of Africa as it once was.

    There is a delight in the life of a safari, wading through a sea of waist high grass dancing in perfect synchronization with rifle in hand, climbing the rolling hills of Namibia with scenery both beautiful and interesting, mingled with the strong attraction of silent places, of large clear moons, where the wanderer sees the awful glory of sunrise and sunset in the wide waste spaces of the earth.

All hunts are conducted on foot in a fair chase manner, ensuring you the best we have to offer.

    A Typical Hunting Day

    After a wake-up call from the PH or Red-billed Francolins (bird) nesting in a tree above your bungalow, a full English breakfast will be served to your taste in the Lapa area as you soak up the fresh morning air with a coffee in hand.

    The 4x4 hunting vehicle with a tracker and PH will be waiting for you after your delicious breakfast, ready to start the day. After the PH has discussed the plans for the day with you, the hunt will commence. You will be heading to an area where your quarry will be expected to be, since the PH’s know the areas very well. However, there are no fixed plans, you might be after a big Kudu and before you know it, a nice Blue Wildebeest might slip onto your “wish list”. Throughout your hunt the PH will be communicating with you, to ensure that your every need is served. After all, this is your safari...

    While you drive around in the 4x4 hunting vehicle you will be in search of your quarry for the day in hope of finding the big boy. Or you will head to a designated area where your quarry will hopefully be, then you will go on foot in search of the quarry. If it happens that you spot the quarry from the vehicle, the hunt will commence on foot to ensure that you attain the best hunting experience possible.

    [​IMG]

    The PH will make you feel right at home, making you part of the hunt with proper communication. The stalk on foot will be in single-file and as quite as possible to ensure that you have the best possible chance in harvesting your quarry. If you get into a shooting position, which will be between 80-150 yards, you will be shooting from 3-legged shooting sticks. The PH will talk you through the shot and helping you in any means possible.

    After the shot, the quarry will be set up for trophy pictures to be taken with you in a professional manner. The quarry will then be taken back to the camp/lodge where it will be taken care of by our top quality skinners. The skinning will be done upon your desired request. After a refreshing drink, the hunt may continue...

    Your safari with us is tailored made, ensuring that we can attend to your every need.

    Why Rifle Hunt with Kowas Hunting Safaris

    [​IMG]

However, the actual trophy is the experience you get to take back home – and it’s not measured in inches or pounds. We will look after your every need and the hunt will be tailored to your capabilities, ensuring you a great African safari with Kowas Hunting Safaris..

    Big Game Hunting in Namibia
    Namibia is Africa’s mecca for dangerous game hunting at the moment, since the closing of other African countries for Dangerous Game hunting. Namibia is one of a few African countries who is taking a positive stance toward Trophy Hunting as an irreplaceable form of conservation through utilization. The Namibian Government is doing an outstanding job in protecting our rights to hunt, ensuring that we will have a good future in the trophy hunting industry for our future generations.

    Big game Hunting Areas
    The Zambezi Region of Namibia is an oasis with rivers like the mighty Zambezi, Chobe, Kwando and Linyanti with its complex channel of reed beds, lakes and islands. The biggame hunting areas all lie in close proximity to three national parks namely; Mudumu National Park, Mamili National Park and opposite the Kwando/Linyanti River of which the opposite shoreline belongs to the world renowned Chobe National Park of Botswana. You can expect to see Elephant, Buffalo, Hippopotamus, Crocodiles, Reedbuck, Red Lechwe, Sable, Roan, Kudu, Zebra, Blue Wildebeest and Leopard.

    Most of the hunting takes place along the river on the multiple islands, using a boat or 4x4 vehicle to move from one island to the next, and hunting thereafter is on foot by means of tracking or spot and stalk. The primary trophy animals in this biggame hunting area are buffalo, elephant, hippo, crocodile and limited quota on various plainsgame species.

    There are three hunting camps, is situated in the Mopane forest under huge indigenous trees. It has been recently upgraded with a new lapa area and canvas Chalets each with en-suite bathrooms, fitted with flush toilets and hot showers. The camp is powered via generator and Chalets and Lapa have lights with additional portable lights being provided after hours. The lapa has a charging station for batteries and phones. Camp cuisine is traditional Namibian meals and special orders/diets can prepared on request.

    If I could show you a way to make your Big Game safari a reality - and still gain a top-quality hunting experience …would you be interested?

    Add on Trophies: Bushbuck, Red Lechwe, Reedbuck, Hippo, Crocodile, Bushpig, Sable
    Roan, Waterbuck, Burchell’s/Chapmans Zebra, Bluewildebeest

    Waterberg Plateau National Park

    Add on Trophies: Eland, Giraffe, Roan & Sable

    Note on Waterberg Plateau National Park: Most of the biggest buffalo taken in Namibia has been hunted in this area. Extremely challenging hunt in beautiful scenery which is in a class of its own. If you work hard, you can be able to find an old buffalo bull of 44”+ with hard bosses.

    Regarded as the best buffalo hunting area in Namibia!
    Malaria free area as well!

    The best part of this area is that it is 3 hours drive from Windhoek, and when you harvest your trophy we can take it straight to the taxidermist or shipper in Windhoek without waiting for your trophy in quarantine facilities like in the Zambezi region.

    All hunts to be conducted with Jacques Strauss as the Big Game Professional Hunter

    Activities at Kowas:

    Kowas Hunting Safaris offers the following activities or short tours for our hunters and their families or friends accompanying them on their safari as non-hunters. We will ensure that your stays with us are filled with activities in order to make your safari a memorable experience.

    [​IMG]

    Our hunters will return from their hunting expedition just before dark where they will be congratulated on their success of the day. We will then move to the outdoor fireplace (a typical African tradition), where we will enjoy a sundowner and celebrate the days success. Various traditional African dishes are prepared on the built-in barbecue area under the thatched roof, with the emphasis on venison. Depending on what the hunter has harvested for the day that specific game meat (venison) would be prepared for supper. Various cooking methods are used in order to ensure a variety of dishes and tastes. To emphasize the African tradition, meals are served outside under the thatched area and tables are decorated in such a way to complement the menu. Please inform us in advance of any special medical conditions, i.e. diabetes, allergies, personal preferences, etc.

    One family-unit consisting of two bedrooms with a connecting private sitting room. Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom facility... This is your own family home in Africa.


    Activities at Kowas Lodge

    [​IMG]

    We are very conscious of the non-hunters and therefore have a number of activities that make the stay of the non-hunters as memorable as our hunters. If non-hunters do not want to accompany the hunters, a number of activities can be chosen from:

    The activities includes:

    • Game viewing excursion
    • Visit to traditional carpet weavers.

    Activities to choose from:

    Cheetah Visit:

    Be up and close with one of the most gracious cat species in the world, namely the cheetah. Clients experiencing this special activity always reflect these experiences of being close to the cheetahs as one of their highlights, a truly magical experience. Guests are allowed to spend time interacting with the cheetahs by stroking and petting the cheetahs and feeding them.

    1175449_416969995091746_809770716_n.jpg

    Cheetahs can be one of the most dorsal and loving cat species on earth. They love attention and have a consistent temperament. The cheetah is a very sensitive animal and therefore every care is taken to minimise their stress when being exposed to guests. This activity is safe while precautions are in place to ensure safety but it remains at the owners own risks to enjoy this humbling experience.

    The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is a large feline inhabiting in Africa. It is the only extant member of the genus Acinonyx. The cheetah can run faster than any other land animal— as fast as 96 to 104 km/h (60 to 65 mph ) in short bursts covering distances up to 500 m (1,600 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to over 100 km/h (62 mph) in five seconds.

    947379_355147254607354_992722228_n.jpg

    This cat is also notable for modifications in the species' paws. It is one of the few felids with semi-retractable claws. The cheetah's excellent eyesight helps it find prey during the day. Sometimes it perches on high places and watches for prey.

    When it sights prey, the cheetah often begins to stalk. It creeps as close as possible before the attack. It may lift its head high to keep the prey in sight. But it keeps its body hidden. The cheetah is hard to see because its spotted coat blends with the tall, dry grass of the plains. Suddenly, the cheetah makes a lightning dash.
    It knocks its prey to the ground and then bites its throat. Once found throughout Asia and Africa, cheetahs today are perceived as racing toward extinction. Namibia is considered as the capital of the cheetahs.

    303558_201231849998896_1051507783_n.jpg

    Adult cheetahs weigh from 86 to 143 pounds (39 to 65 kilograms). Cheetahs eat small- to medium-size animals, such as hares, impalas, wildebeest calves, and gazelles. After a chase, a cheetah needs half an hour to catch its breath before it can eat. When a cheetah is running at top speed, it covers about 23 feet (7.3 meters) in only four footfalls. Female cheetahs usually bear three to five cubs in a litter. Cheetahs live and hunt mainly in open grasslands and bushy areas in parts of Africa.

    A cheetah's head and body grow to 44 to 53 inches (112 to 135 centimeters) long. Its tail, fully grown, measures 26 to 33 inches (66 to 84 centimeters) long. Cheetah cubs stay with their mothers until they are 12 to 20 months old.

    Experiencing the interaction of these magnificent creatures. Once you felt the touch of their fur under your hand, a piece of your heart will always stay behind in Namibia, Africa....

    Shopping in Windhoek:

    Windhoek is the capital city of Namibia, with approximately 250 000 people staying in Windhoek. Windhoek is about ½ hours drive from the Windhoek International Airport and 1 ½ hours drive from Kowas (140 km). Please take note that no foreign currency is allowed for payment when making purchases in Namibia. Namibian dollar or South-African rand is acceptable.

    540359_201692919952789_524356668_n.jpg

    When foreign currency to be exchanged for local currency, you need proof of identity (passport).

    When shopping in Windhoek, you will be exposed to mostly African crafts from either the informal street vendors or the craft centre. It is part of the African tradition to "bargain" for the prices ONLY AT THE INFORMAL STREET VENDORS when making purchases. The informal street vendors do not accept credit card payments, only Namibian dollar cash (or South-African rand) as a method of payment.

    The most extensive craft outlet in Namibia is the Namibia Crafts Centre in the Old Breweries Building in Tal Street, a one-stop facility where every conceivable kind of craft produced in the country can be found - from basketry, pottery, woodcarvings and leather work, to jewellery and needlework, and especially highly artistic needlework. The Centre is managed by the Rössing Foundation, an organisation which promotes rural development and training programmes throughout Namibia.

    577076_201692966619451_1062547287_n.jpg

    A walk around the museum-like interior of Bushman Art in Windhoek will give visitors a quick but insightful look into the many divergent traditional cultures of the Namibian people. Displayed in glass-fronted cabinets, the collection consists of the jewellery, head-dresses, aprons, skirts, musical instruments, calabashes, baskets, bowls and pots, knives, bows and arrows and other weapons of the Himba, Bushmen, Caprivians, Kavangos and Owambos.

    Especially interesting are the initiation masks and costumes of the different Caprivian tribes. The costumes of the Tchokwe, which originated in the Congo where they were made from baobab roots, are nowadays usually made from hessian, and sometimes even plastic.

    The Craft Centre, curio shops and jeweler stores (amongst other shops, such as groceries stores, pharmacies, clothes shops) do accept credit card payments.

    In recent years the production of art and crafts in Namibia's rural areas has become a matter of economic and cultural survival, in addition to being a creative outlet on the part of the artists and craftspeople.

    Some Associations exists which promotes rural development and training programmes throughout Namibia, which have done much to assist communities in the production and marketing of their crafts. Baskets, pottery, beadwork and jewellery are not only an integral part of village life, but are beginning to find their way into art galleries and specialist craft shops, as increasing numbers of rural artists and craftspeople become aware of the income-generating potential of the work they produce.

    windhoek1.png windhoek2.png windhoek3.png

    In earlier times functional items for domestic use were made according to traditional designs and forms from materials that were locally available. Today rural communities are using factory-made plastic buckets, ready-made ornaments, iron pots and plastic beads, all of which have influenced the current production of art and crafts.

    A basket-making tradition has survived in the northern regions of Owambo, Kavango and Caprivi, and to a lesser extent in Kaokoland. Baskets are still used by women in the mahangu (type of corn) fields for harvesting and winnowing their grain, and in homesteads for storing it. They are also ideal containers for transporting goods when on foot. The more versatile bowl-shaped basket is most sought after by the urban market.

    Although baskets vary from region to region, they are generally made from the leaves of the makalani palm (type of palm), Hyphaene petersiana, using the coil technique. Shades of brown, purple and yellow are obtained by boiling the leaves, bark and roots of various shrubs and trees with the strands of prepared palm leaves. Basket-making is a slow process that requires many years of practice. The best baskets are usually made by older women. A medium to large basket can take as long as four weeks to complete. Most baskets are produced in the four Owambo regions, where basket-makers do not use an awl, but a needle with a large eye, through which they thread strips of palm leaf. Baskets made in the Kavango tend to be larger, and those in Caprivi generally have finer coils. Decoration is achieved by weaving across two rows with an overstitch.

    Himba baskets are used to store milk or make fat. Shapes vary from a bottle with a neck and narrow mouth to a deep pail. Most have a leather handle with iron beaded decoration so that they can be hung in the ondjowo (dwelling). Bowl-shaped baskets are also made and used for winnowing the grass seeds collected from ant's nests.

    Increasing numbers of women are becoming aware of the commercial viability of their handwork outside the villages. Besides preserving traditional skills, the commercialisation of baskets can generate a cash income for the women who make them.

    windhoek4.png windhoek5.png

    Over the past six years the revival of inherent traditional skills, seemingly rendered redundant by modern times, and the acquisition of new skills in marketing and sales, have enabled women in the Caprivi to create a vibrant and successful craft industry. The baskets with their unique Caprivi patterns and shapes, and the lengthy process undertaken to create them, is both colourful and poetic.

    Typical Namibian curios are painted ostrich eggshells, candles, jewellery and woodcarvings, Himba dolls, leather skirts and head-dresses, musical instruments such as thumb pianos and drums from Caprivi, wooden combs from Kavango and Caprivi, pounding mallets from Owambo, and tortoise-shell perfume boxes and beaded bags and jewellery made by the Bushmen.

    "Modern" curios are bracelets made by the Himba from PVC pipes, carved and rubbed with ochre to bring out the pattern. Other popular modern curios are wire bicycles, motorcars, aeroplanes and boats, especially when they have wheels and a steering handle. A recent development is colourful handmade and hand-painted candles that are made in Mariental under the brand name Kalahari Candles. Crafts and curios from other African countries, especially from Zambia and Zimbabwe, are also sold at some outlets. Do not take it for granted that all curios which you purchase in Namibia, is made in Namibia. Ask the seller about the country of manufacturing.
