Welcome to Kachauchab
The Hunting Farm Kachauchab is situated approximately 300 km south to Namibia’s capital city Windhoek. "Kachauchab" is derived from the Bushman language meaning "water that seeps into the sand." This is due to numerous dry riverbeds, which carry water only for a short time, which then disappears again without a trace in the sand. The area consists of dense vegetation, but also large open areas, lots of sun, tranquillity and solitude. Hunting Farm Kachauchab was officially recognized as a hunting farm in 1990 and has since been expanded continuously. The Farm contains several well-appointed hides and high seats, many watering places and abundant wildlife. You will be accommodated in cosy double rooms, with shower, toilet and hot water. The kitchen team will spoil you with delicious and traditional Namibian meals.
Enjoy starlit evenings at the campfire with your open-minded hosts and learn interesting facts about the country and its people!
Kachauchab Hunting Farm offers mainly rifle hunting. Many well-known African game species can be hunted and new native species are carefully introduced into our hunting grounds. Your personal guide will accompany you on the hunt. The farm has well-trained staff, with lots of experience to ensure a safe and adventurous hunt. Recently the expansion of hides suitable for bow hunting has been made a priority. Thus, bow hunters are welcome on Kachauchab and can look forward to rustic blinds and a passionate bow hunting host.
Hunting in Namibia on Kachauchab is an unforgettable experience!
The Hunting Grounds
Hunting Farm Kachauchab is situated near the small town of Maltahöhe along the Black Mountain Ridge. The habitat consist mainly of short shrub savannah with bush encroached areas and open plains. A deep dry riverbed –the Hudup River- meanders through the northern part of the farm with permanent fountains and water pools. The average height is about 1350m above sea level. Namibia has lots of sunshine with only a few days per year in which it might rain. The official hunting season is from February to November. Optimal hunting season is from May to November. In the rain season it might be difficult to hunt with the bow, since bowhunting is mainly done from blinds at artificial waterpoints. In the months of February to May, lots of natural water pools arise in the vast landscape after good rains.
Hunting takes place by means of stalking or from a blind on a 12,000-acre hunting preserve. The game on Kachauchab can roam freely on almost the entire farm. This allows a fair, challenging and rewarding hunt! We recommend you bring your own rifle but we also rent out rifles at affordable prices. Besides game hunting, game birds can also be hunted. This however, is limited to the so called dry season only (June to November).
To make your hunting trip in Namibia even more versatile, we offer hunts on a concession farm on a more mountainous area nearby Windhoek. This area is well known for its kudu, warthog and mountain zebra. Feel free to contact us for more infomation on this concession farm.
