Many hunters dream of the day they can relive one of Africa's oldest hunting traditions of toting a double rifle over their shoulder and taking on a beast the size of a double decker bus.

Elephant hunting is done mostly on foot by following promising fresh tracks until the animal is sighted. It is then determined if the tusks are of trophy size or not. Usually this type of hunting involves hours of walking only to be disappointed by a large bodied but small tusked bull. In most cases, an Elephant hunt is a psychological battle of endurance, patience and persistence with many blisters, sunburn and exhaustion.
The shooting part of the hunt is fairly quick, usually a brain shot is recommended at close quarters with heavy grain solids from a large bore calibre. The minimum is the .375 H & H which is a legal requirement in many countries. Most hunters prefer something heavier starting from .416 or .458 Magnum upwards with heavier double rifles being the best choice.
When facing the Elephant a frontal brain shot is one of the most difficult shots to master. The brain, the size of an American football, is situated well back in the skull. With a side brain shot, the brain is situated in front of the ear hole, behind the eye and slightly above the zeugmatic arch. The actual point to aim at, for a brain shot differs tremendously at the different angles the animal holds his head at the time of the shot.
In short, any sort of brain shot on an Elephant is not easy. There are many things to consider before taking it! A broadsided heart / lung shot is a better bet when it is difficult to get in close to the elephant or there is little time to take the shot.
A big bull Elephant with 100 pound ivory tusks is considered by many as the ultimate African trophy, but these days anything over 40 pounds is still considered trophy quality.

They are continual feeders, resting during the heat of the day and are destructive to their habitat if confined to certain areas, often destroying hundreds of trees. Their impact extends to the destruction of the habitat of other species as well, thus creating a serious dilemma for conservationists.

Despite their size, Elephants are worthy of their status and offer one of the most arduous hunting challenges available today.

Territory information:

More information:

The Eastern Caprivi is an oasis for elephant and Buffalos, with rivers like the mighty Zambezi, Chobe, Kwando and Linyanti. Mamili National Park is the largest wetland area in Namibia that enjoys conservation status and so creating a protected zone for the fauna and flora living in this lush, complex marshland.

Dzoti hunting concession is one of the youngest registered conservancies but definitely one of the most promising Elephant hunting areas in Namibia. The area comprises of 250 km² and borders directly with three major National Parks. Contrary to popular opinion, Elephant hunting is not illegal and is permitted in African countries like Namibia, where their populations are stable, adequately protected and well managed. The biggest threat they face is not from trophy hunting, but from human encroachment into their habitat.

You will be welcomed on arrival at the airport, by the professional hunter and escorted to the hunting territory. Shortly after arrival in the territory, you will visit the shooting range to prepare and check all equipment for the hunt.
After the hunt it is possible to visit Swakopmund or Windhoek for some shopping and then the journey home starts.

More information:

Breakfast is usually before sunrise, where after you will go hunting with your professional hunter, tracker and driver. You will be driving spotting game and do some stalks on animals that you have on your wish list. When the animals start hanging around in the shade during the hotter time of the day, you will be heading back to the camp. Where you will enjoy a good lunch and have some time off from the normal hunting activities. In the after noon you will be heading out into the bush until sunset. During your drive back to camp it will be dark, which means temperatures drop and it could really become cold.
