This is a 14-day free-range trophy bull elephant hunt in Namibia’s famed Bushmanland. This is one of the better areas in Africa to look for a big elephant. Over the years, several bulls over 100# have been taken in Bushmanland. Once your elephant has been taken, you can continue hunting plains game with the outfitter on his excellent free-range plains game hunting area.
THE BUSHMANLAND CONSERVANCY HUNTING BLOCKS
This conservancy is covered with Kalahari sands and flat landscapes of broad-leaved and acacia woodlands. The outfitter has harvested several elephants in excess of 70 lbs. on this conservancy.
The area is comprised of two hunting blocks, which combined total over 2.3 million acres. One of the blocks is better early in the season and the other block is better late in the season. The hunting season for elephants begins March 1 and runs through November 30. The best time for this hunt is April, May and June. It is cooler and they shoot some really big ones then!

The two blocks comprise the biggest free-range hunting area in Namibia. The area borders Botswana, and has the same quality of elephants, just cheaper! The professional hunters have a lot of experience hunting big elephants and you will be in good hands on this hunting safari.
This area is aso one of the best areas for big leopard in Africa. The area also has some huge eland bulls.
THE BUSHMANLAND FREE-RANGE ELEPHANT HUNT
This hunt is a free-range hunt for trophy elephants over 60 lbs. You will be able to shoot the biggest elephant available at no extra charge. The elephants roam over a vast area, so a lot of time will be spent looking for fresh tracks and signs. This is a unique environment to hunt in and is known as one of the best areas to hunt “old-style” in all of Africa!
This hunt will be conducted in a traditional way. Based out of a tented camp, you will wake up, eat a light breakfast and then load up and head out for the day’s hunting. Lunch will be during mid-day when the animals are not as active and will consist of a picnic lunch conducted in a convenient spot. Hunting methods will consist of driving and looking for tracks, looking for elephants, and checking waterholes for signs. The elephants tend to congregate around waterholes and pans. Once a fresh sign or a suitable bull elephant is spotted, the stalk will begin until you are in a position to take a good shot.
If you do not get your elephant in the 14 days, you are welcome to continue hunting until you are successful, or you can return later in the year and resume hunting it at no cost other than your return airfare.
This is a unique offer, as it allows you to continue hunting your elephant until you are successful!
This is a hard hunt, but very rewarding. After you have taken your elephant you will get to see how the meat is distributed in the Bushmanland conservancy.
Once the elephant is in the salt, you can continue hunting plains game on the outfitter’s excellent free-range plains game hunting areas.

"I cannot thank you enough for your advice on booking this 5-star hunt. We had a great hunt! Our PH was the best! Everything was just as you said it would be. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciated all of your help. Please use me as a reference for anyone you are talking to.
We could not be more pleased!"
'It was the most exciting hunt I have ever been on. We stalked a small bachelor group for a few days before I shot a mature cape buffalo with my Browning 375 H&H.'
'This was my third hunt with Discount African Hunts and each one has been fantastic. I don't think I would book my future African hunts with anyone else.'

"I would recommend this hunt although I would recommend John at Discount African Hunts even more. Areas can get hot and cold but John always knows the hot spots to send hunters."
