Experience indigenous game species in their natural & historical range
What does "indigenous" mean?
Did you know that a blesbok or a black wildebeest does not occur naturally in Namibia? Or that a sable antelope is not indigenous to the Khomas Highlands region?
And yet these animals occur in game-fenced farms in Namibia.
Since many people are not aware of this fact, we would like to initiate a new thought.
Isn’t it much more special to experience Namibia’s indigenous game species in their natural habitat and to hunt them where they belong?
Because: Namibia offers an impressively beautiful, scenic diversity with free-roaming game.
Selectively hunting indigenous game species in unfenced areas means that the game...
is allowed to occur in its ideal habitat and historical range
can escape (it can escape because there are no fences)
can move freely, depending on water & pasture availability.
Effects of selective, regulated hunting on indigenous game species.
Selective, sustainable hunting has many positive impacts on sustainability:
- Preservation of the value of the animal in the corresponding region
- The historical range provides the ideal habitat for these animals
- Free-ranging without fences ensures genetic exchange
- Preservation of natural wilderness areas without the influence of animals foreign to the region or exotic animals
