Read about Honey Badgers

Apart from our usual news and pictures from the Kalahari, we included in our latest Newsletter detailed and interesting news about Honey Badgers and our encounter with them in the region recently.

They caused a lot of damage and losses. You will never believe how vicious and tenacious these small animals can be.

We honor their abilities and outstanding characteristics for which they are listed in the 2002 Guiness Book of Records as "the most fearless animal in the world"!

Also read John's detailed review of his African hunting experience in the Kalahari of Namibia.

Enjoy and contact us if you are interested in a hunt in Africa. It is our passion to share the Kalahari, its animals and life here with special guests!

Visit our website for detailed info.

Till next time...

Results of our "African Hunting Story Contest"!

We've had an "African Hunting Story Contest" on our website .

The prize for the best story entered on site before June 30, 2008 is a hunt with us in the Kalahari of Namibia.

It includes

Five (5) days of FREE accommodation for the hunter and his/her partner. The following FREE Trophies to hunt: 1 Gemsbok, 1 Springbok, 1 Steenbok, 1 Duiker

See detail on this link.

(Picture below: Ross Talbot hunted this huge Gemsbok with us in the Kalahari!)

Well, the results are in. We received all our judges' points for every story and the computer has done the calculation.

One of the judges said in the mail (containing his results) the following:

"It is a privilege to read all these stories, but a punishment to judge it. Every story is excellent and everyone who reads it, needs only a tiny bit of imagination to enjoy the hunt with the author."
~ Lionel, Western Cape, South Africa

This was our experience also. It really is a pity that we can not give this prize to everyone of the authors. So...

Kalahari Landscapes

We feel the utmost respect and love for our region, namely the eastern Kalahari of Namibia!

Nature here is special. Its droughts keep you "down to earth" and its years of good rain and abundance make you thankful, joyous and content.

One learns what it is to be absolutely dependant on God and His Creation for life.

Here some views of the Kalahari...
