Master Hunting Guides Brian Miller and Bennie Beukes are at your service to tailor your hunts and provide outstanding service.
Hunting methods are custom-tailored to the individual guests’ preferences and physical condition. A variety of hunting methods are used from spot stalking to blinds located at strategic points. Our focus is on mature trophies harvested during an unforgettable experience.
Experienced trackers, spotters and skinners will assist you on your hunt. Your trophies will be prepared and packed according to your choice of taxidermy presentation.
The directorate of Resource Management of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism strictly monitors all hunting. In turn, NAPHA (Namibia Professional Hunting Association) maintains a very high standard of ethics. NAPHA also awards trophy medals (gold, silver, bronze) recognizing outstanding achievement. We will assist you in applying for the awards. In addition, we measure and score your trophies according to SCI standards.
The hunting season lasts from February through November. The quality of the trophies is not affected by any specific month or season.
Bird hunting is also available in season. Keerweder Hunting Safaris is blessed with a variety of game birds – sand grouse, doves, francolin and guinea fowl – that may be hunted in conjunction with your plains game trip.
For Bird hunting the shooting is generally pass-shooting at waterholes. Ranges will be moderate and chokes should be in the range of Improved Cylinder and/ or Modified. Twelve gauge shells are readily available locally and are used as base line in determining costs. If you will need shells in other gauges, please let us know in advance of your arrival so that we have the appropriate size and quantity available for you.
Keerweder Safaris is home to over 15 free roaming species of plains game and are as follows:
