This gives you the opportunity of enjoying a very exciting and varied safari experience, spending four to six hunting days in each location. Depending on your trophy wish list, they will decide where it is best to hunt. They also have one of the rare oppertunities in Namibia where you can encounter free roaming Elephants, desert lions and black Rhino, which provides wonderful photographic opportunities.

Leopard Hunting

Sitting in a blind, your eyes set on the bait, trying to be as quiet as possible and all of a sudden there is movement in the tree at the bait… The sudden arrival of the Tom Cat is guaranteed to cause hyperventilation and an outbreak of sweat! They have phenomenal eyesight and almost telepathic hearing. The slightest unnatural sound or flicker of movement will arouse his suspicion and make him disappear.

Leopard is considered the most dangerous animal in the world when wounded, and after a successful hunt you can pat yourself on the shoulder knowing it is one of the big 5. For those who have hunted this outstanding creature, respect!

Contrary to popular belief, Leopard are NOT endangered in Namibia. But because they are largely nocturnal and rarely seen, there is this wrong perception that they are rare. They are extremely shy animals with excellent senses and camouflage and very good at avoiding humans.

They are also extremely adaptable, hunting a wide variety of prey from medium-sized antelope down to frogs and mice and are able to live in a variety of terrain, making them the most widely distributed of Africa’s Big Five game animals. Leopard are usually solitary, holding and protecting a large territory which is roamed in its entirety on a regular basis. Leopard vary in body size tremendously, a trait that is primarily influenced by the terrain they inhabit and the relative availability of their prey. Males are larger bodied, thickset and well muscled. Their heads are larger in relation to their overall size and their necks are thick and muscular. However it is difficult to distinguish between young males and mature females

Leopards are the perfect predator, opportunistic hunters and massively strong for their size. In their heart lies the knowledge of this inner strength not often exhibited unless wounded or cornered, and they always prefer flight over fight.

Due to their secretive nature it would be very difficult to successfully hunt leopard on a 14 or 21 day safari without baiting. Baiting is the most popular method, lying in wait at dusk from a blind 75 or more yards away. Leopard are very alert, usually coming to the bait the last few minutes before complete darkness.

Quality optics with strong light gathering capabilities are necessary. The bush will notify you of a Leopards pending arrival.

The real challenge is to pit your skill against that of the leopard, try to outwit him and get him to come to bait with enough light to afford a shot. It is said that you hunt an Elephant with your legs, a buffalo with your guts, and a Lion with your heart but a Leopard is hunted with your brain. It is ILLEGAL to hunt with the aid of a light. However it is quite a common practice as some countries do permit it.

Once wounded - TAKE CARE , it is something nobody wants to experience! Wounded Leopards are usually hell bent on revenge and their ability to hide means they hold all the advantages when following their blood trail. They will choose the time and the place and more often than not will wait until you are literally stepping on them before they charge. Any medium calibre rifle from 7 x 57 and upwards is adequate with the best shots being for the shoulder, spinal or for the vitals situated behind the shoulder. Here as with a brain shot on an Elephant, the angle the Leopard is offering you is important. Quick expanding ammunition that will deliver sufficient hydrostatic shock will drop even the largest of Leopards.

With leopard, trophy judgment is usually not as important as deciding whether it is a mature male or not. The best indicators are the body, head and neck size and the base of the tail.

Namibia has of late become a very popular leopard hunting destination!

Photographic Safaris

A photographic safari can be an add on to your hunting safari or we can make you, the client, a tailor-made photographic safari. We usually take clients to Etosha National Park through Damaraland to Namibia’s spectacular West Coast where the Namib dunes is a must to see.

These tours are easy to combine with a hunting safari, usually after a successful hunt. We are situated only a mere 100 miles away from Etosha National Park so if you don’t have time for a week long Photographic Safari but would like to take one day off your hunting safari we easily arrange a day trip to Etosha National Park.

Places in Namibia that are worth a visit:

• Etosha National Park where four of the big five, except buffalo, can be seen in their natural habitat, More than 100 mammal species and more than 300 bird species could be found in the park.

• Damaraland – Twyfelfontein where you find rock engravings, Brandberg, Namibia’s highest Mountain, Khorixas, the capital of Damaraland and many more

• Swakopmund a holiday town with rich German influence and architecture, situated on the Skeleton Coast. And Walvis Bay, a deep sea harbour.

• The Namib Dessert – considered one of the oldest desserts in the world. Scenic flights along the coast, quad biking into the dunes, dolphin cruises, shark catching or surf/boat fishing trips and nature trips into the Namib Desert, are but a few activities offered along the coast.

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex
