For the past 32 years, your hosts Johan and Elfie Kotze, owners of Omatako Hunting trails, have been personally involved in supervising and running an operation that is extremely close to them. Born Namibians and raised on farms, their love for wildlife and hunting allowed them to move from cattle farming to wildlife, which became their passion.

In 2007 they were fortunate enough to be joined by their son, Johan Jnr, as a professional hunter after completion of his studies. In 2012 he got married to Geraldine, an addition that made Omatako a complete family business.

From a small beginning with mostly German clients, Omatako moved on to become one of the most successful Namibian hunting operations, receiving clients from all over the world. We believe that hunting is a tool of conservation, where old mature animals need to be removed. We follow ethical and sportsman-like hunting methods where all hunting is done on foot, thereby giving our clients the ultimate intimate contact with wildlife.

Hunting and wildlife is a passion for everyone on Omatako.

    This was my second chance to hunt with my good friend John Miller (pior comment) since a disabled hunt in New Mexico,and it far exceded my expectations. What Gysbert and Gert did to get me on animals was never ending. They made the camps and trucks as accessible as possible. Danene and Sandri made me feel like family. Thank you for the time of my life,I will be back…

    Aru is the only choice for someone looking to experience a true Namibian safari. With two different lodges and two different ecosystems one can experience two safaris in one. The facilities are second to none and the staff will see to your every need. A wide variety of activities are available and there is never a dull moment. You can make the safari be exactly how you want it to be. Put your trust in the Aru team and you will not be disappointed.
