After my 10 day hunt in Zimbabwe, I met my wife, daughter and another couple in Joburg. We flew to Windhoek the next day and did a 7 days plains game hunt in early June, 2015 at Hunter's Namibia Safari, owned by Joof and Marina Lamprecht. These folks were named the 2014 Outfitter of the Year by the Dallas Safari Club. Marina does a great job hosting and taking care of everyone. The lodge staff is fantastic, with great attention to detail. Great place, with 2 different lodges that are both 5 star accommodations and gourmet dining. Great hunting, particularly Oryx, Hartebeest, Black Wildebeest and Waterbuck. This was the first hunt for my 21 year old daughter (who got the urge after going on a photo safari to Chobe last year). She was able to take several nice trophies (Hartebeest, Oryx and Zebra). The property is about 50,000 acres and is located about an hour from the airport.

My only complaint was how they bill "hunting days." We were billed for 7 hunting days and really only hunted 6 days. They considered the day we arrived as a hunting day and we really didn't hunt. We arrived just after noon time, had lunch and got settled into our rooms. Later in the afternoon, went to the rifle range and everyone shot. It was after 4pm by the time everyone was done, so we "hunted" our way back to the lodge. Despite this, I'd go back again. If you want to impress a non-hunting spouse, this is a really nice place to go and spend some time. My non-hunting wife would ride around with my daughter and me during the afternoon hunts, but would skip the morning hunts. We combined photo safari and hunting safari during the afternoons and it worked great.

Glad you Had a good safari. I had to comment on the billing policy. That alone would keep me from booking with them. Your first day was NOT a hunting day. I would not of been happy. Bruce

Welcome and congratulations on some fine trophies. I too will make my first safari in September to Namibia. I of course am no authority on Africa but from my research your first day is NOT a hunting day it's considered a travel day at a lesser rate. Usually they charge the first and last day at observer rates.

Congrats on an excellent hunt. Looks like a wonderful time with the family.

As Bruce said the "hunting day" you were charged wasn't a hunting day. I'll be sure to add them to my places not to go.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
