The Safari in Gamsberg, mt Barry & The Caprivi
Situated in the heart of Namibia, 126 kilometers South West of Windhoek, you will find Gamsberg and the Mount Barry Wilderness. The ranch itself is over 55,000 acres with an incredible diversity of plains game species. Robin has created a conservancy with the surrounding landowners and now has hunting grounds in excess of 300,000 acres. There are no high fences, allowing the free movement of game between the plains, the adjoining mountains and an area called “The Badlands” - which is a large inaccessible wilderness that drops down to the Namib Desert.
The wildlife has slowly been built up from the cattle ranching days to include herds of Gemsbok, Hartman's Mountain Zebra, Red Hartebeest, Springbok, Blue Wildebeest, Eland, Duiker, Blesbok, Southern Impala, Black Wildebeest, Cheetah, Klipspringer and Steinbok. Kudu migrate from the nearby mountains and Warthog, Meerkats, Klipspringer and many other animal and bird species flourish here. Leopard and Cheetah numbers have increased. The trophy hunting season is open from 1st February to the 30th November.
The landscape of the ranch is stupendous, and varied, with granite kopjes, bush and grass veld and tumbled mountains. There are unique features such as a Quiver tree (aloe dichotoma) forest in “the badlands”, and the table top Gamsberg Mountain overlooking the ranch. This is Namibia’s third highest mountain (2349 m) and is accompanied by Little Gamsberg Mountain.
We offer 3 hunts in Namibia:
a. Plains Game Hunts based at Gamsberg.
b. Leopard Hunts based at Gamsberg.
c. Elephant hunting in the Caprivi.
We organise big game hunts through colleagues with licensed concessions in the Eastern half of the Caprivi Strip. The area is generally regarded as one of the best big game hunting concessions in Namibia and one of the finest in Africa. The area is renowned for its large concentrations of Elephant, Buffalo, Crocodile, Hippo and a healthy population of Sable and Roan antelope.
What makes Gamsberg Unique
Gamsberg, Mt Barry &
Situated in the heart of Namibia, 126 kilometers South West of Windhoek, you will find Gamsberg and the Mount Barry Wilderness.
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."
