Namibia’’s government carefully regulates leopard hunting in the country.
The number of licenses issued each year, and for each area, is dependent on the current population and success rates from the previous year.
Daily bait management plays a large role in the success of a hunt. Warthog, Impala, Oryx and Zebra are most often used for bait. Leopard hunting requires a rifle with a caliber of no smaller than 7mm. If you do not have your own, a rifle will be provided by the outfitter.
Leopard hunting is largely an exercise in patience and can last as long twelve days. This time is spent quietly waiting inside the pop-up blinds located near the bait drop. If you have what it takes, bagging your monster tom will be an experience you won’t soon forget!
