Mahango National Park Concession

The Mahango National Park Concession area forms part of the Bwabata National Park in North-east Namibia. The Okavango river forms the boundary between Bwabata National Park and Mahango National Park. The famous Okavango Delta starts at the Mahango and Botswana forms the southern border of the Park.

 

If you are looking for somewhere “off the beaten track, with a true wilderness feel” this is the place. Our hunting camp is the only accommodation facility in the park. The park is renowned for its large herds of elephants (mainly bulls) and Buffalo, while hippo and huge crocodiles could be found everywhere. All antelope species to be found in the Caprivi area and Okavango Delta are also resident to the park. A true wildlife paradise.

Primal.  Dangerous.  Challenging.

Test your mettle against Africa’s most deadly. Namibia offers outstanding elephant, buffalo, hippo and crocodile hunting. It is not inexpensive in time, currency or courage, but the things most worth doing rarely are.

BIG GAME SPECIES

Chilling. Enchanting. Addicting. Hunt Africa’s dangerous species from the Linyanti Swamps to the mighty Zambezi River, spanning from one end of Namibia’s panhandle to the other. Explore buffalo-infested islands by canoe or track heavy-tusked elephant through towering forest. Our big game areas offer prime populations of cape buffalo, hippo, crocodile and elephant, plus a variety of plains game species.

Hunting the African Elephant

kowas-big-game-elephant

The African Elephant – what a prize for the hunter of dangerous game, what a dream for the lover of the mystique and romance of the age-old ivory trail and who revels in perusing the supreme of all wild animals, as our ancestors have for millennia.

The tremor and anticipation, the Kid-on-Christmas Day excitement, that courses through your being when the trackers and Professional Hunter finds a fresh elephant bull spoor, nod to each other and set off.

Downing a big, mature bull elephant is the goal; if he has great tusks, take that as a bonus, not a right.
A minimum of fourteen days is required to hunt the largest pachyderm on earth. A lot of driving and checking for fresh spoor of an old bull will form part of the majority of the trip, but it all is worth it when you track down an old-tusker.

Hunting the Cape Buffalo

The African Cape Buffalo has enjoyed a “Jack the Ripper” reputation throughout most of the Dark Continent. He has always been a top contender as the African continent’s most dangerous animal, and there is no question that the sheer physical characteristics of Mbongo, Njati, Nyati or narri, depending upon what dialect you hunt him, is a very unique package of aggregate attributes that in their total are unequaled by any other member of the Big Five.

 

Today, the Cape Buffalo is the most prolific of the dangerous Big Game in Africa. Are you up for the challenge to test your wit against a dagga boy?

 

Kowas Hunting Safaris offers some of the best buffalo hunts in Namibia’s top hunting areas. Definitely a hunt that will make you come back for more.
