Hunting in Namibia
A proud 40-year history of ethical, reasonably priced trophy hunting of the highest standard in Namibia has revealed that sustainable utilization of wildlife resources has been a major factor in protecting Namibia’s game populations. Even depleted game species, which formerly populated areas of Namibia, have been re-introduced through effective game management based on the principle of conservation through selective hunting. For the international hunting clientele, one of the main attractions of hunting in Namibia is the high standard of ethics maintained by the Namibia Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA).The Namibia Professional Hunting Association was founded in 1974 in order to promote Namibia as a hunting destination internationally and protect the right to hunt locally. NAPHA works hand in hand with the Directorate of Resource Management of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) not only for legal ethical hunting but also to ensure sustainable use hunting is the backbone of conservation in Namibia.
This is echoed in NAPHA’s Mission Statement: „The fundamental purpose of NAPHA is to enhance and maintain, by effective management, an organizational infrastructure that can serve professional hunting members, clients and other interest groups. Our intent is to ensure and promote ethical conduct, sustainable utilization of natural resources, and to secure the industry for current and future generations. The Association insists that its members provide the highest standard of professional service to international hunting guests. They are expected to hunt strictly in accordance with the ethical principles as stipulated in NAPHA’s Hunting Code. The Hunting Professional is at all times encouraged to act responsibly towards nature, wildlife and the local population.“ These values are shared by BookYourHunt and is why we are so proud to be a partner with and sponsor of NAPHA. Only NAPHA outfitter members are allowed to offer their hunts on BookYourHunt so when you book your safari in Namibia from the vast selection on our website you know you are booking with a consummate professional.
