Namibia Hunting Outfitters and Safaris
Rifle and Bowhunting Safaris on the Best Hunting Ranch in Namibia
Eureka hunting safaris cater to provide exclusive hunts. The company is a small family outfitter giving every client the best personal attention throughout the hunting trip. Only one group (maximum 4) of hunters is booked at a time. Eureka hunting safaris is a family friendly outfitter company. We strive that every hunter will leave his/her hunting trip with good memories, a sense of fulfillment and as a friend.
The thing to remember about an African hunting day is that it is your day. The PH will suggest, advise and lead, but it is your choice on what you want to do.
The method of hunting employed depends on the preference of the client and can consist of either walking and stalking or hunting from blinds or special vantage points from which we can spot and ambush animals. The option of hunting from one of our well-equipped vehicles is also available should you have any medical problems, or are limited by not being able to walk long distances. Your Professional Hunter will discuss these options with you upon arrival.
The PH will ensure that the hunting crew is briefed in advance of the agenda for the next day. This will ensure that they know what is expected of them at all times and whether they need to load bait meat and baiting equipment.
Every hunt has its own challenges and everyday will be a new adventure. A typical hunting day begins just before the sun sheds its first rays. Enjoy a cup of coffee and rusks before setting out on your safari, or opt for the more substantial selection of breakfast cereals, yogurt and juice. The morning hunt will generally run until around 11:00. Towards the end of the morning the temperatures will be getting quite high so you’ll either make your way back to camp for lunch and a rest or find a thick shady tree to picnic under and have a snooze. The hunt is resumed at about 14:30 and will typically continue until sunset.
End off your day with a delicious hot meal, a few drinks and exchanging old hunting stories around a big campfire.

Bow Hunting in Namibia
Namibia has a long tradition of hunting with a bow and arrow. Practiced by various rural communities; the most well-known of these is the Kalahari Bushmen, who traditionally hunts with poisoned arrows. Bow-hunting for trophies in its modern form was legalized during 1997 and is thus a recent development.
The predominant drive behind this development was the ever-growing trophy hunting sector. Modern-day trophy hunters, who would like to hunt in Namibia with a bow, can select from a large variety of registered Bow-hunting outfitters. Due to Namibia’s natural habitat, types of game and seasonal changes in vegetation, bow hunting requires the highest standard of hunting skills and ethical behavior.

“I highly recommend my Professional Hunter Chrisjan Potgieter of Eureka Hunting Safaris Outjo, Namibia.
He is a young hard working and very knowledgeable PH. His honesty, integrity and professionalism are outstanding in every way. As a person Chrisjan Potgieter is as easy going friendly and calm under pressure as you would hope to find anywhere and he is my friend.”
