In conjunction with the Directorate of Scientific Services, the Directorate of Parks and Wildlife Management regulates hunting. Hunting in Namibia represents a valuable economic asset and the experience of hunting has considerable international marketing potential. Hunting should be managed and operated in a spirit of responsibility, cooperation and accountability amongst all parties.
Hunting clients to Namibia do not need a hunting license. However, the Profesional Hunter (PH) guiding the client will be in possession of a registration certificate from MET and also has to be registered with the Namibian Tourism Board (NTB). Trophy permits are issued by MET for a nominal fee. These permits are required in order to hunt and export a particular species, and are applied for by the PH on behalf of the client.

The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
