Gross-okandjou Hunting & Western Riding Ranch
Yes, the hunt! For many people, a controversial subject. We know that and therefore strive to promote understanding of hunting, as it is applied to large-Okandjou and many other farms in Namibia. We hunted primarily as part of the cycle of nature. We need the meat - for our workers and their families and also for us. The revenue from the few trophies that we can impose on us in the course of a year, do not contribute considerably to the livelihood of the farm operation at. When meat hunting as well as in the Tophäenjagd we look embarrassing on sustainability. This primarily means that the number and age structure must agree to any type of game. Despite a farm size of more than 9000 acres but we are as reliant on understanding the neighbors. This is not always easy. Our established years ago Hegering Kalkfeld of almost 500 000 hectares size is as an important step.
Speaking of old-fashioned - Hospitality is the top priority at us. With us the customer is never one of many. He will always be a person with their specific preferences and desires, we are trying to meet, even if sometimes we reach our limit. We are very happy if we can get some help to reconciliation between riders and hunters - which by the way always manages back often - but we force anyone into a situation he does not like. On 9000 acres is a lot of space in order to go out of the way. Furthermore riding season and hunting season are rarely identical.
