Namibia - Hunting Regulations & General Information
CITES permits are required for Cheetah and Leopard. Please check with your home country if you can import these animal trophies i.e. the USA does not allow Cheetah.
Advice on guns, licensing, ammunition, scopes etc. to bring will be given once a group has booked. You may bring your own guns or we can provide you with rifles and ammunition at cost. All hunts are operated on an exclusive basis so the camp and area will be for your party only.
1. Trophy Export
Please bring with you 2 photocopies of your passport and 2 printouts of your home address information. Please also bring with you your taxidermists full details including: name, address, e-mail address and telephone numbers. After your safari your trophies are delivered to a local taxidermist for treatment, veterinary requirements, packing and processing of exportation documentation. This process takes between 3 to 6 months.
2. Passports & Visas
Visitors to Namibia must be in possession of a valid passport, with a minimum expiry time of 6 months and at least two empty pages in the passport. Visas are normally issued on arrival into Namibia but please check with your travel agent as to whether your nationality requires a visa in advance.
3. Climate & Recommended Clothing
The climate is generally hot and dry except from mid-May through to the end of August when the temperatures can be extremely cold. We suggest that you bring plenty of warm clothing including jackets, fleeces, jerseys, slacks, gloves, balaclavas, and warm socks. Hunting shoes should be well worn in and comfortable. Broad brim hat, sunglasses and sun block are essential. Hunting clothes should be of cotton material and either olive green or jungle green.
4. Medical Information
With the exception of Caprivi, Namibia is Malaria free.

Conservation is the foundation of the Namibia experience. Namibia was the first African country to incorporate protection of the environment into its constitution
"We were introduced to Robin Hurt Safaris by trusted word of mouth...we wanted an experience for our family that was as much an education as a hunt, and they tailored and delivered beyond expectations in every possible way. We've returned several times to Namibia and Tanzania, and there's a reason why they represent the gold standard in this business..simply the best."
