NAMIBIA – ERONGO
FREE RANGE FENCE-LESS TROPHY HUNTING
Join YUMA on an amazing free roam fenceless Namibian hunting adventure in the wilderness of Erongo.
Our hunting area is located in the heart of the Erongo Mountains. A few hours drive from Windhoek. The lodge is located in the middle of the hunting area of 12,000 hectares, the lodge is surrounded by the Erongo mountains, which are of volcanic origin and more than 2000 meters high. In earlier times it was here, like so many other places in Africa, cattle farming, this reduced the wildlife and our host family decided to take care of these. Rather, they focus on a targeted shooting in their area that is not closed by fences. The shooting takes place as a result of an annual census of wildlife, which has become a great success and the number of animals that originally belong to this area is increasing annually.
The hunt takes place on free land, on all species that live naturally in Namibia, the area is on 12,000 hectares of hunting terrain + 20,000 hectares of surrounding land.
The Erongo Mountains are famous for their large population of leopards and their large trophies, it is quite common with trophies in the medal class.
