Osombahe-Nord Hunting Safaris is situated in the central highland of Namibia, approximately 120 km (72 miles) to the East of the international Airport in the Omitara Area. On offer is a wide variety of species for bow and rifle hunting, true Namibian cuisine, luxury accommodation and great company based on 12 years of experience in the hunting and tourism industry. Exceptional hunts together with tailor-made tours or fishing trips can make your safari a trip of a lifetime!
The main lodge and hunting area is situated in 15,000 hectares (37,000 acres) of unspoiled, open savanna. The hunting concession stretches from the central region to the east of Namibia. The natural habitat in this part of the country is renowned for producing top quality Eland, Kudu and Warthog trophies. Further to the South East, in prime Camel-thorn Savanna, an additional 37,000 acre concession in the red dunes of the Kalahari is home to excellent quality Oryx, Impala and Springbuck.
Your host during your stay will be owner, Professional Hunter and Tour Guide, Harald Jacobsz. Harald is passionate about hunting and has been on safari throughout most parts of the country which has led to his wealth of knowledge on animal behavior and Namibia’s diverse natural wildlife. He looks forward to welcoming you to share his piece of paradise!
Osombahe-Nord Safaris strongly believe in the natural ethics of hunting and do not shoot from vehicles in principle. The San People, having roamed the plains of the Kalahari for centuries, have an intimate knowledge of the animals and their environment with their ability to track animals being a mere instinct! The employment of indigenous San trackers ensure that the chances of losing an animal are remote, which significantly contributes towards a successful hunt.
The main hunting concessions are particularly well suited to bow hunting due to the number of natural, open water holes which have blinds customized for bow hunting.
Besides the more common species found in Namibia, special request hunts for additional species such as Black-faced Impala, Cheetah, Damara Dik-Dik, Giraffe, Roan, Sable, White Blesbuck, White and Black Springbuck can be arranged in other areas.
Non-hunter/observers are welcome and encouraged to accompany the hunt.
