EUREKA! - a cry of joy or satisfaction when one finds or discovers something.
Farm Eureka, the base of Eureka Hunting Safaris, is located 1 hour to the western side of Outjo – also known as the main gateway to Etosha National Park. The 12 000 acres of land consists of the Mopane bushveld, the magnificent Ugab terraces and is cut in two by the Ugab river. The two permanent natural springs and dry riverbeds are home to a large variety of animals and bird species.
The thing to remember about an African hunting day is that it is your day. The PH will suggest, advise and lead but it is your choice on what you want to do.
The method of hunting employed depends on the preference of the client and can consist of either walking and stalking or hunting from blinds or special vantage points from which we glass and ambush animals. The option of hunting from one of our well-equipped vehicles is also available should you have any medical problems, or are limited by not being able to walk long distances. Your Professional Hunter will discuss these options with you after arrival.
The night before the PH will have briefed the hunting crew with the plan for the next day, so they know what is mainly going to be hunted and whether they need to load bait meat and baiting equipment, if that is on the agenda.
Every hunt has its own challenges and everyday will be a new adventure. A typical hunting day begins just before the sun sheds its first rays. Enjoy a cup of coffee and rusks before setting out on your safari, or opt for the more substantial selection of breakfast cereals, yogurt and juice. The morning hunt will generally run until around 11:00. Towards the end of the morning the temperatures will be getting quite high so you'll either make your way back to camp for lunch and a rest or find a thick shady tree to picnic under and have a snooze. The hunt is resumed at about 14:30 and will typically continue until sunset.
At the end of your African hunting day, back in camp, it’s time to kick back and relax, shower, have a drink, eat dinner and enjoy the talk and laughter around the campfire.

Namibia consists of exquisite natural habitat ranging from the mighty Namib Desert on the west bordering the Atlantic Ocean to the flaming red dunes of the Kalahari bordering Botswana in the east. The north is home to sub-tropical vegetation and a vast number of perennial rivers that separate Namibia from its neighbors Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The arid landscape of the south is splint from South Africa by the majestic Orange River. Namibia is home to 2.1 million people making it one of the least densely populated countries in the world - allowing the extraordinary natural habitat and indigenous animal life to flourish.
