Namibia – a true adventure | Namibië – ’n ware avontuur

As hunting is all about adventure and Namibia is filled with it, GAME & HUNT invites you to not only enjoy a young hunter’s dream hunt in Namibia, but also to imagine yourself hunting on horseback, tiger-fishing on the Kavango River and hunting Cape buffalo in the untamed Caprivi Strip.
Some of the biggest adventures are born out of your ability to handle the curveballs life throws at you. This is the lesson 9-year-old Zander Els learnt on a holiday-cum-
hunting-trip in Namibia recently. Zander (with a little help from his dad who wrote down his story) tells us about three lessons he had learnt on this holiday, and about how sincere the people of Namibia are – instead of wanting to make money from visitors they focus on making their experience as pleasant as possible. He ends his article with the words, “I wish there were more people like them in the world. I think I will be hunting in Namibia a lot in future.” Something to think about after reading his story on p 14.
Om te perd te jag verskaf ’n ekstra dimensie aan die jagervaring, veral as jou perd kan spoorsny. Piet van Rooyen vertel van die Marico-jagter oom Jan Meintjies se jagperd en van sy eie arabiermerrie, Asjas, wat kon spoorsny. Lees op bl 20 oor ’n jagtog met drie perde: een vir die jagter, een vir die professionele jagter Marius Carstens, en een vir Manie Dauseb, die Namagids en spoorsnyer – ’n eg Namibiese vertelling.
Tiger-fishing and hunting Cape buffalo are two very special adventures to experience. On p 28, Stefan Fouché (GAME & HUNT editor: Hunting, Guns & Ammunition) tells readers about his tiger-fishing trip that involved flying, travelling 900+ km by road, and trolling and drift-fishing from a boat – all just to learn what it means to “strike” and “land that fish”. On page 48 Stefan ups the adrenaline in Namibia’s Caprivi Strip while hunting Cape buffalo, staying on a blood track for 25 km in the scorching sun. While Stefan’s hunting and fishing experiences are a celebration of adventures, bringing hunters and other people together, KZN Hunting Shooting & Conservation Association celebrated 60 years of being actively involved in hunting and conservation. Turn to p 44 to read about the inaugural meeting on 21 September 1959 and get the full report on the association’s history via a QR code. If you are a subscriber to the GAME & HUNT DigiMag, you can read it on your mobile device, tablet or PC.
Terug na die realiteit … Dr Flippie Cloete verduidelik op bl 68 op watter slaggate mens bedag moet wees as dit kom by ’n korporatiewe benadering tot boerdery. Sy raad is om die nodige kundigheid te verkry en deeglik te beplan. Met minder as die normale reënval in Namibië en die situasie waarin wildboere verkeer as gevolg daarvan, moet daar buitengewone keuses gemaak word, berig Wildbedryf Namibië (WRN) op bl 74.

WILD & JAG poog om sy lesers van insiggewende, gehalte-artikels te voorsien, maar ook om daardeur die avonture en ervarings van die wild- en jagbedryf op ’n “entertaining” manier oor te dra. Nes ek die Engelse woord “entertaining” hier gebruik, leef ons in ’n wêreld waar digitale en sosiale media vir ons elke minuut van die dag al die aktuele sake bring. As jy op hoogte wil bly van aktuele sake wat ’n impak op ons bedryf het, soos die verwikkelinge rondom vuurwapenamnestie en die Verenigde Koninkryk se verbod op die invoer van trofeë, maak seker jy is ingeteken op ons gratis daaglikse nuusbrief, GAME & HUNT Daily (www.gameandhuntdaily.co.za), asook ons Facebook-blad Wild&Jag/Game&Hunt.

Geniet die avontuur!

HUNTING CAPE BUFFALO in the untamed Caprivi Strip

I was corrected by my host Karl Stumpfe, professional hunter and owner of Ndumo Safaris in Namibia, when I spoke about the Kwando area.
