NAMIBIA – COMMUNITY LAND
Game Trackers Africa Safaris CC currently operates in 2 Concessions in the Caprivi, Lusese & Nakabolelwa all adjacent to one another, offering you in access of 153, 000 hectares of prime elephant hunting grounds,boasting some of the Caprivi’s best hunting areas on the Chobe River. Each area is unique in its own way, offering a variety of vegetation types and zones allowing the hunter to accessebility to different areas to follow the game as they move across this free range landscape, to pursue the hunt. These concessions are situated on the Namibian side north of the famous Chobe River, directly opposite the Chobe National Park in Botswana, stretching all the way to the mighty Zambezi in the north.
The area consist of open plains, coupled with Silver-Cluster leave and Mopane woodlands, in a relative undulated terrain, with no rocky outcrops or mountains, and in stark contrast to the rest of the Arid Namibian country in that it is zoned as sub-tropical vegetation, inundated with the swamps and floodplains of the 4 rivers that surround the area; Kwando in the West, Zambezi in the North, Linyanti in the South and Chobe in the East. The rich diversity of wildlife that inhabits this area is representative of these swamps and floodplains, and interspaced thick Mopane forests.The average on Elephant trophies in all of the Caprivi can vary between 45-55 lbs, while the odd 60+ pounders frequent these areas on a regular basis. Over the years we have also taken a couple of 70+ pounders. All in all, this is one of the last Elephant havens in Africa, where you can still enjoy authentic elephant hunting.
Lusese is attached to Salambala on the western side, and shares one of the major forests. The eastern side the concessions pans out into the floodplains with island of vegetation that the Elephants like to hide in. Between these islands, the floodplains are filled with thousands of Zebra. There are two major channels running through Lusese which feed from the Zambezi through to the Chobe and these are abundant in Hippo and Crocodile. Our “Headquarters” Nandavu Camp (place of the lion) is based in Lusese, and sport elevated walkways and chalets.
Nakabolelwa a partnered neighbouring concession which is also bordering the Chobe River, consists of 11 400 hectares, bordering Lusese to the south. Hunting is conducted from the Chobe rive up to Lusese. It is mostly a floodplain with some small islands of trees….. but has a relative big Cape Buffalo quota. It’s a Buffalo paradise. Stalking through the reeds and long grass are sure to get the blood pumping early in the morning. It also has a large hippo quota, and both these main species are well in abundance and easy to find. Big crocodiles also occur in the area.
There is nothing more satisfying than tracking down your trophy elephant through the mopane woodland forests to find him standing with a few Askaris, huge ivory prominently visible through the bush, or stalking buffalo through long grass and reeds, something which is sure to get ones blood coursing; the reason we do what we do
