“This was a great hunt with wonderful people! I would highly recommend Ozondjahe Safaris. This place was amazing! It has an extreme amount of game. I have never seen so many animals and to be able to take a huge Leopard was the icing on the cake! All of my animals were great trophies with some going record book!
Great place!.”

“Dear Jerome, Just a little acknowledgment of our exceptional hunt at Ozondjahe, everything we have been told was there and plus. Lots of game, plenty of trophies and an exceptional Professional Hunter, who has a radar between the two ears. I have never met such a pleasant and competent PH with extremely great sense of humour. Our tracker was also exceptionally talented. In spite of bad weather we managed to harvest the six species of game I had initially planned including this exceptional Greater Kudu which made my whole hunt. I definitely plan to return to this African Hunting Heaven of yours and enjoy the excellent Lodge, Food and Service Crew. My sincere thanks to all the Team for making this trip the best hunting experience in my life.”

“Hi Jerome. I just wanted to send you a short note saying how much we enjoyed the trip to Ozondjahe. It was fantastic!! The service was impeccable. You’ve got a great crew including Theuns and his family, the cooks and serving crew, laundresses, skinners and trackers. The PH’s were professional, very personable, hard working and really enjoyable to hunt with. The PH was tremendous! I had a wonderful time hunting with him. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. The gals enjoyed the shopping, Cheetah Conservation trip and Crocodile farm. The trophies were icing on the cake. What a wonderful place you and your family have in a unique part of the world.
The entire trip could not have gone more smoothly or been more enjoyable. Thanks again for the tremendous hospitality.
I think I already have a few folks who would like to accompany me on a return. If I’m not careful, I could get used to this. J Thanks again, Jerome. Best wishes.”

“Dear Jerome, My wife Sandy and I had a fantastic hunting experience at Ozondjahe. The trip exceeded both of our expectations. The hunting was outstanding, and Francois and Fredrick were a pleasure to hunt with. They were a great team, and my wife Sandy and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our hunting safari at Ozondjahe. We saw an abundance of game in a vast landscape challenging topography and thick bush. The trophy quality was exceptional, and the judgement of Francois was very valuable in selecting the best game to go after and stalk. They helped me change my wife’s view of hunting by their gentlemanly and sportsmanlike conduct in the field. Sandy arrived in Namibia as a non-hunter who was somewhat dreading the trip, and who had sworn to not want any part of the hunting or eating any wild game… to becoming curious enough about all of the wild game we saw to start riding along on almost all of our hunts and enjoying Franz’s excellently prepared game dishes at almost every lunch and dinner. Janette and Pauline were also very good hostesses, and even sent us home with a jar of homemade cumquat marmalade. Thanks for the great hunting experience. Best regards,”
Bryce J. McKee, Pennsylvania, USA


 

“Dear Jerome, We returned from hunting at Ozondjahe a few days ago and now that the jet lag has somewhat abated I want to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. We felt very much at home. The hunting was superb and the number and variety of game animals were all one could hope for. Our PH was great. Both Tom and I felt comfortable immediately working with him. We are delighted with the quality of the animals we shot (14 between the two of us). We hope to go back in 18 months or so, bodies being able and $$$ being available.”
Thomas Delmer and Sharon Rearwin, California, USA

“Jerome, I had an excellent time at the ranch. Hunting was extremely good and the PHs were both excellent. Food was even better than last time with game prepared nicely. Accommodations were also great. Thank you for your attention to providing us with a great experience. I hope we are able to return soon.”
Thomas Pritchard, Texas, USA


 

“I would rate my experience at Ozondjahe as one of the best in my life and definitely the best hunting one. I must congratulate my ph for conducting himself in a most professional manner and the true gentleman he is. His diverse knowledge from hunting tales to flora and fauna was second to none.
The daily laundry, the early morning breakfasts, house keeping, lunch, dinners, swimming pool, service and good company were all exceptional. The only regret is that I should’ve done this a long time ago knowing what I have missed out on as if I’ve cheated myself. What they say about getting hooked after the first safari is very true. I’m already planning my next trip to Africa in particular the Caprivi for some big game hunting. The only problem is how to endure the time between now and then. Yours sincerely”
Arthur Dellas, South Australia, Australia


 

“Jerome, I wanted to tell you personally that we had the time of our lives. The staff was great and we had a lot for fun with both PHs. The hunting was much more them I dreamed it would be, we took some amazing trophies. The plan is to come back in two years with our kids. Thanks you,”
Jesse and Cassi Kysar, Colorado, USA

“Ozondjahe was referred to me from friends hunting in the past. I now will certainly refer others to experience this fantastic opportunity. The staff, accommodations, food, equipment and everything else is truly first rate. The knowledgeable PHs are the best and will do everything to make sure your hunting success is met. After 8 days of hunting we did not cover all of the property. This is the best experience I have had in Africa.”

Bob, Helen and Sarah Shogren

Bob, Helen and Sarah Shogren

“We found our African hunting trip to be an enjoyable family vacation combining the hunt, photography and 1st class facilities. Each day was treated as the first day of the hunt by our PH Francois and the hunting and house staff. These people were dedicated and knowledgeable about the hunt, the game and its’ habits and the history and background of Namibia. The Windhoek pickup and escort to Etosha Park made arrangements care free. As for the actual hunt, we’ve never seen so much game and were able to take the trophy class species desired. Care was taken to take only mature trophy animals to ensure conservation. The accommodations and hunting vehicles were top notch. I will recommend Ozondjahe to anyone.”
Bob, Helen and Sarah Shogren, Washington, USA

“Dear Jerome, I just wanted to send you an quick email to say how much we had enjoyed our safari at Ozondjahe. It is the most tremendous place and we were so well looked after by your excellent and very friendly staff. The lodge is very comfortable and the food delicious. The hunting really was excellent and between the two of us on a 2×1 hunt, I think we just about got every trophy we were after, which is pretty amazing in only 8 days and in the extreme heat of late November. Andries was really a revelation. I have hunted with a number of PHs, all of whom I thought were excellent, but none of whom comes close to Andries. He is relaxed, fun, entertaining, extremely knowledgable, very good company and a superb PH. He really made it an outstanding hunt. You asked me to let you know if I had any worries or complaints and I honestly can’t think of a single thing. The attention to detail and sheer professionalism of your team made it an incredible, unforgettable experience. Many, many thanks.”
William Price, United Kingdom


 

Bob Clancy

Bob Clancy

“Had a fantastic time like I did when I was here in July. Actually, this time was even better since I got the Leopard I’ve been after for a long time. Francois was a great PH and worked very hard to get me the most beautiful Leopard. Actually, we saw three in the 10 days I hunted. On the first day we had a very old, fat, white leopard come within 6 meters of our blind but did not get a shot off! Everyone was fantastic and I thank all for making this the best hunt of my life.”
Bob Clancy, Florida, USA


 

Tom Pritchard

“4th Trip to Ozondjahe, as always treated like I am a wayward son coming home. Meals were wonderful and hunting was difficult but rewarding. Too much rain and green for good bow hunting at the waterholes. PH’s did all they could to make our hunt productive. Between my son and I we took 7 bow hunting trophies. Fantastic given the circumstances.”

“Dear Jerome, I had a great time at Ozondjahe. The game was abundant and all of the animals I took were in great shape. The highlights of my hunting were taking a Hartmann’s Zebra in the mountains after hours of stalking and the 56 inch Kudu, also taking in the mountains. The entire house and field staff were most courteous and pleasant. The meals were great. Our gracious hostess attended to our every need.

Given the opportunity, I will come back to hunt with him.”

“The staff is very professional and friendly. Our PH Andries Smit did everything he could to meet our expectations and needs. The bottom line is he delivered! In spite of the rainy season we still saw hundreds of animals daily. Thanks to our trackers, Ronnie and Frederick and Andries expertise, all of my animals were magnificent specimens. The accommodations were outstanding and the food was superb. The cook is a master chef. Our dinners ranged from escargot to Eland steaks. To say the least, I’ve been pampered and spoiled. You have made a lasting memory for me.”

“Dear Jerome, Just a short note to tell you what a wonderful time we had. My children and I fell in love with Ozondjahe and Namibia. What a beautiful part of the world! As I know you will soon be discussing specifics with my husband, I will only say that our seven year old is still walking on air after having shot his warthog. The staff at Ozondjahe was very kind and helpful. I now think of Francois as a member of the family. You are very fortunate to have such a gifted and enjoyable PH at the ranch. He was wonderful with our children. I hope one day we will return! All the best!”

Paul Brisso

“Jerome, I just wanted to let you know that Melissa and I had a fantastic time at Ozondjahe. On the flight over, I told my wife I was a bit concerned that I had been looking forward to the trip for so long and had built it up in my mind so much that I hoped I was not disappointed. It seems impossible, but the experience not only met my expectations but greatly exceeded them. I was so enthralled with the country, the animals, the birds, etc. that I think I was on sensory overload for the first few days at least. Your PH Andries was not only a super hunter but he was a great host and it was very enjoyable to spend time with him even the long quiet hours in the leopard blind. The rest of the staff was also super. Melissa said she always felt welcome, even while out hunting. My first animal was a zebra (on the second day) and I made a poor shot and was pretty discouraged when we had not found it after several hours, but Andries and the trackers stayed with it. We recovered it late in the day probably two miles from where I had shot it was an amazing tracking job. I would have been devastated if I had wounded and lost my first African animal. Their persistence was not only the proper ethical hunting thing to do, but also made the day thrilling rather than a bitter disappointment. As we discussed on the phone, the leopard was not completely cooperative but Andries changed the strategy a bit and I took it on the sixth day of my hunt. Of course the leopard is a great trophy, and the impala and warthog (which I was initially not too interested in, but had a chance for an exceptional animal and I am now very happy I took it) I think are far better than average and my remaining animals I consider very good trophy quality. I still can’t believe I took the seven animals in 11 days and had the 12th day to do a little wing shooting for sand grouse, which was a kick. Despite the initial uncertainties in getting the Etosha trip set up, it worked out fine and was another highlight of the trip. I have been home less than a week and am already trying to figure out when and how I can return to Africa. Thanks again!!”
Paul Brisso, California, USA


 

Wayne van Zwoll

Wayne van Zwoll

“Hunting in Africa was once only a dream for American sportsmen. Now a plains game hunt is as affordable as a Western elk hunt, while travel to the bush has become relatively quick and painless. The proliferation of hunting outfitters in South Africa and Namibia, however, leaves some travelers scratching their heads. “With whom should I book?” I’ve taken several plains game safaris and prefer Namibia over South Africa. Among outfitters, Ozondjahe ranks near the top. Its professional hunters are capable and keen to bring you shooting. Accommodations and food will leave you wishing for the same at home. And there’s a wide variety of game, with plenty of acreage to ensure a fair-chase hunt. It’s easy to reach from Windhoek, a great pick for a first safari and sure to please even seasoned African hunters.”
Wayne van Zwoll, Washington, USA

“Going on an African hunting safari was a life long dream and Ozondjahe made the trip a wonderful experience. I have many memories to treasure and re-live. I can’t imagine anything that could have been done better. The staff was wonderful and the facilities top notch. Most of all, the hunting team was absolutely great!! The PH satisfied all our requests and more. He and his team demonstrated their professionalism in locating, tracking, and handling the excellent trophy animals we took. Everything exceeded my wildest dreams.”

“Sejour inoubliable a Ozondjahe pour 1 chasseur et 6 accompagnants. Territoire exceptionnel et gibier abondant mais difficile d’approche et de tir (heureusement!). Service, logement et nourriture irreprochable.”

“Ozondjahe Safaris surpassed our expectations from the aspect of hunting, accommodations, hospitality and activities which were non-hunting. While I was hunting my wife and friends enjoyed their day trips and overnight trips. Our meals and accommodations were excellent. In my hunting trips I was surprised by both the quantity and quality of the animals I saw. The trophies that my PH selected for me and I shot were all 10 to 15 years of age and included: Gemsbok, Impala, Cape Eland, Red Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Zebra and Kudu. My Male Leopard was 4 years of age and I shot it on the ground, in the grass, in the sun.”

“I certainly enjoyed my twelve days of hunting with my PH. His patience and skills allowed me to take mature trophy animals that should all qualify for the SCI gold and my 57″ Kudu should easily qualify for Rowland Ward. The property is a wonderful mix of terrains with the animals having the clear advantage. Certainly the food and accommodations were beyond my expectations. This safari will always be remembered as a great experience.”

“I truly had a unique and wonderful experience with Ozondjahe Safaris. The grounds are mature, varied and very inviting, making for great relaxation after the hunt. Meals were especially delicious, and I got great pleasure from tasting several kinds of wild game during dinner. Staff members were all polite and helpful, ensuring none of my needs were left unfulfilled… and always promptly. My lodging was very good too… clean, inviting, and quite comfortable. Most of all though, the quantity and variety of game was outstanding! I easily saw several hundreds head of animals throughout a typical hunting day. This was no doubt in large part to our superb PHs, trackers, and drivers… all extremely professional with unquestionable expertise. Again I had an excellent experience with Ozondjahe Safaris and hope to come again in the future. Very sincerely,”

“I can sum up why my wife and I will return to Ozondjahe in three words: “Trophy Quality” and “Professionalism”. The quality of the animals here is remarkable, the staff friendly, the accommodations everything you need and more. Plus, name another game ranch you can afford with a chef on staff. The hunting experience in Africa so often comes down to the attitude of the Professional Hunter and I can say that Andries Smit is one of the good ones. We came to Ozondjahe without really knowing what we were getting into but we are leaving with friends here; taking with us memories and magnificent trophies. We had a wonderful time at Ozondjahe. Andries is a marvelous PH and I would recommend him to anyone. All in all we had a ball. I don’t want to sound corny but to us it really was the trip of a life time. Thanks for helping set it up.”

“Wonderful place. Plenty of game. The Professional Hunter tries his utmost to get you the trophy you wish for. He works very hard for the best quality trophies. Accommodations are”First Class”, with bungalows and en suite bathrooms like a luxury hotel, with swimming pool outside in mature gardens. Food is excellent, different dishes every night, all well prepared and delicious. Laundry service is excellent, clothes cleaned and ironed like in Europe, to Western standards. I would rate Ozondjahe as an excellent hunting destination for a good range of plains game animals with services par excellence!”

“It was my first hunt in Africa and the better hunt I ever made. The place, the ranch is wonderful, the people and the staff are the best, I really recommend this place. The animals roam free in a big ranch; you would never notice there is a ranch. The food, the bedrooms, the lodge is supreme. I am an outfitter in Mexico, www.balammexico.com, I really recommend this ranch for hunting.”
