Bow Hunting

Bow Hunting in Namibia

Otjandaue started bow hunting in the 2007 hunting season and is a registered bow hunting ranch. We have 5 waterholes with well-equipped bow blinds where hunters can lie in ambush. We also offer walk and stalk bow hunting experiences for the more advanced bow hunter. We try to get within a range of 20 to 30 metres of the animals with a side-on shot if possible.

We have a shooting range at the guest house where hunters can practise and adjust their bows.

All the species on our price list are huntable with a bow except for leopards. In Namibia, none of the big 5 is allowed to be hunted with a bow.
