Arub Safaris is located 65km (40 miles) west of Windhoek, the capital of Namibia; about a 50 minute drive from the airport. Windhoek International Airport is the point of arrival and is about a two hour flight from Johannesburg, South Africa or ten hour flight from Frankfurt, Germany.

Firearm permits are issued on arrival with there being a maximum ammunition allowance of 60 rounds.

All rifle hunting on this 25,000 acre private, unfenced property is fair chase and will be done by spotting and stalking on foot in combination with a 4×4 vehicle. With the average shooting distance ranging from 200 -275 yards, a 7mm Rem. Mag., a 300 Win or Ultra Mag. is recommended. Bow hunters are also welcome with a variety of blinds and hides available for the bow hunter on another privately owned, high-fenced property, 2 hours to the east. For personal attention the number of hunters in the field at any one time is limited.

About Namibia

Namibia is a very stable and beautiful Southern African country bordering the South Atlantic Ocean, between Angola and South Africa. The country covers 825,418 sq km, slightly more than half the size of Alaska, USA. The terrain is mostly high plateau with the Namib Desert along the coast and the Kalahari Desert in east. Namibia has a desert climate; it is hot, dry and rainfall is very sparse and erratic. Day time temperatures are 14 – 26˚C (58 – 79˚F) but temperatures can drop below freezing at night.

The lowest point is the Atlantic Ocean at zero metres with the highest point being at Konigstein which measures 2,606 m. Namibia is the first country in the world to incorporate the protection of the environment into its constitution. Some 14% of the land is protected, including virtually the entire Namib Desert coastal strip.

With a population close to two million people, Namibia is one of the least populated countries in the world. English is the official language but Afrikaans is actually the common language of most of the population including about 60% of the white population. German is also spoken by 32% of the population. Indigenous languages include Oshivambo, Herero and Nama.

Known for its large Kudu, Gemsbok (Oryx), Springbok, Eland and Red Hartebeest, Namibia is also the only place where you can legally hunt the Hartmann’s Zebra free-range. The breathtaking scenery, pleasant climate and wonderful people make the country a first choice for an African plains game hunt and vacation.
