Namibia Travel Advice

We want your travel to be as smooth as possible. These are things we've learned by helping our clients through the process of traveling to Namibia. 


En Route to Namibia

You will not need more than 3-4 changes of clothing, in short don't over-pack. Many hunters split their ammunition when possible incase of lost baggage, this is a good idea. For Malaria prevention and shots that need to be taken, please check the US Department of Health recommendations for Namibia.

When you are checking in your luggage and rifles from Atlanta/New York, check everything through to Windhoek unless you intend over-nighting en route. Ensure that your rifle case is sturdy enough to take the abuse it receives from baggage handlers. Also ensure that it is locked.

Recently, South Africa has changed their permit process for hunters in transit. The NAPHA has more information about this situation on their website.

Please advise us of your exact dates, times and airport of arrival before departing. You will be met by a representative of Classic Safaris at the airport unless you indicate that you have your own itinerary for the first few days (recovery from jet lag, side trips, etc). Upon clearing customs you must go to the firearms desk to fill in this form and receive your rifle/s and temporary permit. The information that they will require on the form is as follows, Full names, I.D. or passport number, original firearm permit (if available),  the serial numbers and calibres for each rifle, the amount of ammunition (do not exceed 60 rounds per calibre) and your departure flight number and date. You will also be asked in what area you will be staying/hunting; this is the name of the Conservancy.  


Arriving at the airport in Windhoek

Travel Within Namibia for Hunting

For our Caprivi Strip hunting area, Air Namibia offers regular scheduled flights to the Mpacha airstrip near Katima Mulilo.

Our main hunting area in the North West of Namibia is a four hour drive from Windhoek. Road transfer to the camp is included in your package, or you may choose to consider an air charter as an option. After securing the exact cost, Classic Safaris will gladly book the flights on your behalf and with no commission.



Returning Home

At least 48 hours before your scheduled departure you are required to confirm your booking, we will assist you with this.

On the day of departure, when checking in your luggage the rifle must also be weighed and checked in. You will then be instructed to take the rifle to the police office where they will check the serial number/s of your rifle/s and ask the amount of ammunition that you have left. Your temporary firearm permit will be taken and your rifle/s can then be placed on the conveyor for loading.  


First Trip to Hunt in Africa

We truly enjoy helping hunters with their first trip to Africa, to make it as easy, memorable and special as we can. Open communication is the best way we can help ease your concerns about any part of your trip.
