Our private conservation area covers 30,000 hectares (70,000 acres) in northern Namibia, just south of Etosha, itself one of Africa’s largest national parks.
Over the last three decades, Ken and Lynda Morris, together with a dedicated staff, have restored the natural habitat, from once over-grazed and barren farms. They removed fences and allowed the native plants, animals, and birds to flourish in an area that had been destined for desertification. In this surprisingly diverse terrain, kudu feed on the mopane forests and giraffe nibble the tops of the acacia trees in the woodlands. Mountain zebra clamber over rocky hills and oryx roam the grasslands. Here, lilac breasted rollers and crimson breasted shrikes compete with bateleur eagles and pale chanting goshawks for a visitor’s attention.
Namibia is a vast country with a population of just over 2.5 million making it one of the least densely populated countries in Africa.
Its beauty lies in its landscape, along with the diversity of flora and fauna and in its many areas of interest.
The oldest desert, the largest meteor crater and the highest sand dunes in the world are but some.
The climate in Namibia is excellent, with hot summers and warm winters. The rainy season occurs during the summer months between October and March. Winters in Namibia are mild with warm days and cool mornings and evenings.
The official language of Namibia is English,
followed by Afrikaans and German.

and under the dictum of fair chase.
- Never shoot from a vehicle.
- Avoid shooting closer than 200m from a vehicle.
- Never shoot at a waterhole.
- Avoid taking the shot you are not sure of.
- Only ever shoot at free and wild animals.
- Always treat the animals that you are hunting with
- Never sit or stand on a taken animal or allow it to be
