Zana Botes Safari Welcomes you!
Zana Botes Safari is a premier outfitter located in the heart of Namibia.
Free range and Ethical hunting is part of the successful conservation story of Namibia in both Plains Game and Dangerous Game and are pillars of each safari with Zana Botes.
Zana Botes is not as much a Professional Hunter as he is a Personal Hunter. He adds that personal touch to each safari, catering to each hunter's personal needs. Each hunt is tailor made to suit every individual for the Safari of lifetime.
"If you've read anything on African hunting you've been exposed to the wit and prose of Robert Ruark. The highest compliment I can pay to Zana Botes would be to liken him to Harry Selby in "Use Enough Gun". I have been on twenty safaris in sub Saharan Africa, in 5 different countries, and never have I had a PH more in line with the professional hunters of old. Zana will tell you what he expects from you, what his game plan is in regards to the game being hunted, and will then proceed to coordinate the efforts of those involved in an attempt to achieve success. He does what he says he'll do and is a man of his word- all done with a wicked sense of humor, a commitment to maintaining the true ethics of hunting, and a quiet demeanor that facilitates a positive experience even if a shot is not taken. If you hunt with this man you will experience African hunting the way it is supposed. I believe not only will you come away richer for the experience but you will have engaged in the sport as it should be, ethical and proper with the game given the respect it deserves.."
