Namibia Hunting News
Some news around hunting activities and social responsibility of Ondjou & Van Heerden Safaris.
Winter has arrived with big steps and the nights are pretty cold now, nothing below zero degrees Celsius yet, but cold enough to spend the evenings at the warm fireplace with some good homemade biltong. The biltong hunting season started recently. The temperature and the extremely low humidity are perfect conditions to produce this tasty Namibian specialty.
The 2 photos are showing the same Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata – Affenbrotbaum) and damage done to the tree by elephants. This kind of damage is common in areas where a high elephant population occurs. The damage to the tree species is to such an extent that the tree is highly threatened and disappearing slowly.
On a regular basis we educate children from the community about our concept and teach them about the importance of hunting and natural conservation. We explain about the different species that live in the area and that can be hunted. On these educational days we always offer a lunch in the camp and go on a boat ride or game drive.
