Africa Hunting Gear

Africa Hunting Gear

We've made a list of some of the gear you may need on your African hunting trip.

It is our experience that most hunters don't realize that things such as

  • ankle gaiters 
  • binocular suspenders
  • a bipod or tripod
  • memory sticks for pictures and videos
  • necessary cables (if needed) of cameras to download pictures here

may be some of the things you'll need.

Here are some additional notes:

  • You don't need to bring big cameras if you only come for a hunting safari. The smaller but good quality cameras, are much more convenient to use in the veldt.
  • Our PH has a good rangefinder. Since you as the hunter will have your rifle to handle and the PH accompanying you all the time on your hunts, you don't need to spend the extra money on a rangefinder.
  • You will definately need ankle gaiters during your hunt. If you can't get it, we'll get you a pair here in Namibia.

We also created a detailed Namibia Hunting packlist to assist you in your final preparations for your Namibia Safari. Feel free to use also your discretion when going through this list.

We hope that the list below proof to be very useful to you!

Meaning of "Uitspan"

'Uitspan' is an Afrikaans word that means place of rest.

When the Boer settlers moved inland in Southern Africa in the 1800's, they used ox carts. When they found a spot with game, water and green grass, they arranged their ox carts into a circular laager for protection against wild animals and stopped for a rest.

They referred to such an action of relaxation for man and beast, as Uitspan.

Greater Souther Kudu
Greater Southern Kudus are famous for their ability to jump high fences. A 2 m (6.56 ft) fence is easily jumped while a 3 m (9.84 ft) high fence is jumped spontaneously. These strong jumpers are known to jump up to 3.5 m (11.48 ft) under stress.

Some animals have one sense more than man!

The flehmen response is a particular type of curling of the upper lip in ungulates, felids and many other mammals. This action facilitates the transfer of pheromones and other scents into the vomeronasal organ, also called the Jacobson's Organ.
This behavior allows animals to detect scents (for example from urine) of other members of their species or clues to the presence of prey. Flehming allows the animals to determine several factors, including the presence or absence of estrus, the physiological state of the animal, and how long ago the animal passed by. This particular response is recognizable in males when smelling the urine of a females in heat.
