Shorts and short sleeved shirts are recommended for the hunt. Colours should be natural, green or khaki. Not heavy, but protecting. A pair of good broken in rubber sole shoes is very important for hunting seeing that most of our hunts are done on foot. Sun protection, lip protection with high SPF, sunglasses and a hat are essential even in winter. Be sure to pack warm clothing because morning game drives and hunting in open vehicles will be cold. Guests do not have to bring excessive clothing as a daily laundry service is available. Hunting clothes with light shades of any colour and any clothes that make a noise should be avoided.
Note - Camouflaged clothing is permitted only in the hunting field in Namibia.
IMPORTANT! It is advised that you put one pair of extra clothes, toothbrush and medical needs in your hand luggage in the event that your suitcase should arrive a few days later than you. Some of our guests have experienced this problem before.
Summer in Namibia is normally from November to April where the landscape is lush and green but you can expect high temperatures that can go up to 35°C. Heavy storms are not really a concern and do not interfere with the hunting. If the first rains appear water is all around and wildlife move away from waterholes. This can make Bow hunting difficult.
Winter is from May to August. The nights are cold and temperatures can drop below 0°C while day temperatures can reach 25°C. Kindly be reminded that the African sun stays dangerous even in winter. There is little to no rainfall during the entire winter and humidity is low. You will need good lip protection against the dry weather and sun. Water resources starts drying up and wildlife will gather around waterholes. This makes for excellent Bow hunting condtions.
September and October are a lovely months in Namibia. It’s not too hot yet, but the chill in the mornings become less. It is dry and the skies are clear. During October the green vegetation starts to fade and the heat gradually builds up.
