Affordable Plains Game Hunting in Namibia
Plains game hunting in Africa is something that most hunters dream about for their entire lives. However, it can be difficult to find an experienced outfitter who offers affordable plains game packages but can also offer incredible trophy quality.
At Engelbrecht Safaris, we specialize in offering affordable hunting packages for multiple plains game species throughout Namibia, while also delivering remarkable, often world class, trophies. With our annual special packages starting at US$5,000 all inclusive ( including trophy Kudu, Gemsbok, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, and Warthog) , it will be tough to find a better opportunity for an affordable hunting safari in Africa. And if you're wondering about the quality of our trophies, simply click here to view our Namibia Trophy Hunting Galleries for multiple species taken in our areas.
With more than 16 years in the business, Engelbrecht Safaris has helped hundreds of hunters to realize their dream of hunting in Africa. With most of the common trophy species abundantly available, Namibia is the Jewel and obvious choice for serious trophy hunters. World class Kudu and Gemsbok are in particularly high supply here, and we have the photos to prove it!
Trophy Kudu and Gemsbok Hunting
Kudu and Gemsbok are easily recognized as being two of the most popular game animals in Africa. With the large, beautiful spiral horns of a mature Kudu bull, and the extremely long horns of a trophy Gemsbok (particularly long in Namibia), these are two animals that are a must for any trophy room. In the hunting concessions available to Engelbrecht Safaris. In Northern Namibia, monster Kudu bulls present opportunities regularly. It is common for our hunters to see several excellent trophy bulls during their safari. However, simply spotting a trophy animal is only the first step.
Gemsbok on the other hand are often found in more open areas, and longer shots can sometimes come into play. Heavier long range calibers are recommended, although shot distances will vary from one safari to the next. Both male and female Gemsbok make excellent trophies. Females typically have longer horns than the males, although horns on the males are usually heavier — particularly at the bases. So depending on your personal preferences for length or mass, you can select the animal that you prefer. Gemsbok are available in larger numbers in Namibia than any other part of Africa, and your chances of success are very high.
Other Species Available
In Northern Namibia we are fortunate to have a large abundance of game animals. While most of our clients will have a particular "wish list" for trophies when they arrive, hunters will see multiple different species on each day of their safari. In addition to Kudu and Gemsbok, common trophies will include Eland, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest,and Warthog.
Over the years, it has become clear to us that many hunters experiencing Africa – especially for the first time – want to take multiple trophies home. However for most of our first time hunters it also important to keep the pricing affordable and we understand how important that is as well. So with an abundance of trophy Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest and Warthog available in our hunting concessions, we are happy to include all of these species in our Affordable Plains Game Hunting Package.
This package includes one of each of the following:
- Trophy Kudu
- Trophy Gemsbok (Oryx)
- Trophy Blue Wildebeest
- Trophy Red Hartebeest
Of course, all of our clients must understand that we cannot guarantee opportunities at each of these animals on every safari. However, in most situations, clients will be presented with opportunities at most (or all) of these species in a 7-10 day hunt. Our hunting areas are abundant with all of these species, however as any experienced hunter will know, just because the animals are there doesn't guarantee a shot opportunity every day. Additionally, when the opportunity presents itself, it is up to the hunter to successfully make the shot.
In addition to these five popular species, clients hunting with Engelbrecht Safaris can also expect to see many of the following animals on a hunt, and are welcome to shoot any of them when presented with the chance. Additional trophy fees will apply on these animals, however this creates great flexibility for clients to pick up additional trophies depending on whatever opportunities present themselves.
Optional additional trophies may include:
- Hartmann's Mountain Zebra
- Burchell's Zebra
- Black Wildebeest
- Grey Duiker
At Engelbrecht Safaris we are hunters ourselves, and we realize that there is much more to hunting than simply collecting a trophy. Additionally, we recognize that many people love the challenge of bowhunting and we encourage bowhunters to join us on safari.
While rifle hunting and bowhunting strategies will often be quite different, bowhunters can expect to see multiple species on a daily basis as well. Our track record of success with bowhunters is excellent (we have had more than 350 successful bowhunting clients), and we have a large number of repeat clients who come back regularly to add to their trophy collections. This affordable plains game package is available at the same rates for bowhunters — and we have 15,000 acres assigned exclusively for bowhunting.
