Namibia leopard hunting is an age old tradition and they are fortunate enough to have a significant quota on leopard each year. Various methods of hunting leopard have been used over the decades however today baiting and watching for spoor is an ongoing process.

A shy, solitary, elegant, powerfully built cat, with a beautifully spotted coat. The basic body color varies from almost white to orange-russet, with black spots on the legs, flanks, hindquarters and head. The spots on the rest of the body consist of rosettes or broken circles of irregular black spots. The tail is about half of the total length, with rosette spots above and a white tip. The ears are rounded and white-tipped. The under parts are usually white to off-white. They are found in a wide range of habitats, from dense forest to mountains, bushveld and desert.

Leopard hunting is not just about going out there and killing a cat, it entails so much more, it is an art which has to be perfected. Only males may be hunted and the PH either has an affinity for this art of hunting or not. Our outfitters incredible 64% success rate over the past 5 seasons is testimony to their teams skills.

Their PH’s are personally involved with the hanging and checking of the baits, but most importantly, they observe, conclude and study these cats. Our trackers, on foot and on horseback, search for and find new sign of Leopard and know the trails that these animals follow on a regular basis. For this process they use multiple Trail Cameras, Telemetry Collars and GPS Collar. NOTE – NO leopard that is wearing a collar will be hunted,these specific individuals are for research purposes only. The Trail Cameras are used at the baiting sites. The images captured reveal a significant amount of information, the numbers of animals, the sex of these animals, family structures, behavioral patterns etc. The collars in turn provide very precise information about home range, reproduction, roaming patterns as well as interactions with other Leopard. Because of our outfitters pursuit of Leopard, they started their own Leopard research project to better understand Leopard It aids in determining and developing knowledge about their population structure and the opportunity to study their behavior.

Comfortable accommodations are provided each with full bath facilities – and surrounded by a nicely landscaped African garden, complete with a swimming pool. Excellent meals feature a great variety of game and domestic meats, as well as fresh vegetables, fruits and fresh baked goods. This family-run operation has been providing high-quality hunts since 1972, with over 43 years of experience, this outfit does it right. They pride themselves on their reliability and attention to detail, ensuring that all facets of your hunting experience are professionally managed. In addition to the hunt itself, they also provide excellent follow-up services for trophy handling and shipping – something that is becoming increasingly important.
