Daggaboy Hunting Safaris has two hunting areas in Namibia.
The base camp is situated at 22° 56.542’S 16° 41.208’E. The other hunting area is in a conservancy in the Caprivi.
The plains game hunting areas range from flat, open thornveld savannah, open grassland, rocky hills to riverine bush. In the Caprivi it varies from mopane forests to swampy areas with wooded islands closer to the Kwando River.
The main hunting camp is privately owned but the Caprivi area is state owned.
Hunting is mainly done from March to October which tends to be cool and dry. Daytime temperatures are warm to hot, whereas at night it can get cold. Generally speaking a warm jacket would be needed at night. However, during the day temperatures can reach 30°C. The summer rains start in January till end of March.
The land was previously used for cattle but has been used for hunting for the last 30 years. They have a few cattle on their property.
There are no inhabitants on the land used for plains game but there are locals living in the conservancy in the Caprivi.
Dawidâs farm is 8000 hectares with another 40 000ha surrounding it and also offers hunts in the Caprivi area in northern Namibia. All areas except the Caprivi are in a low-risk malaria zone. If hunting there (Caprivi), it is recommended that anti-malaria prophylactics are taken. The distance between Daggaboy camp and the Caprivi area is a 1 hour 20 minute flight away with Air Namibia.

Many different trophy species are available, ranging from the ‘Big Five’ to most of the plains game. There is a limited quota on mountain zebra and klipspringer available. End-of-season discount hunts are also offered if quotas are not fulfilled, and the minimum hunt is seven days. Bow and rifle hunters are catered for.
A 55 kudu was taken this year, and elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, crocodile and hippo as well as plains game can be hunted in the Caprivi. Buffalo trophy quality is excellent and the average is over 40. All other trophies taken are good quality and all effort is made to make the whole hunting experience a memorable one.

Daggaboyâs Lodge has tin-roofed chalets that are next to the main house. The lounge, bar and dining room are separate from the accommodation. All the buildings and chalets are brick and all have en suite bathrooms, flush toilets, hot and cold water and constant electricity. If there is a power failure they have a back-up generator. There is a swimming pool, satellite TV, landline telephone as well as mobile phone and free Wi-Fi coverage. They prefer to accommodate a maximum of 4 hunters at a time.
The distance to the closest tar road is nearly 60 km. No lights can be seen and no vehicles can be heard. There is a small perimeter fence and the property is stock-fenced. The nearest international airport is Hosea Kutako International, a one-hours drive. There is a doctor living on the neighboring property as well as a hospital a 40-minute drive away in Windhoek.
All meals are inclusive of the price and vary from home-cooked meals to BBQ/braais with starters and pudding. Early, pre-hunt breakfast is continental with a full-on brunch after the morning hunt, and typically the animals shot provide the meat. All drinks and alcohol are included in the daily rate.
Two full-time trackers are employed who have been working for Dawid for 10 years. They also have skinners and a full complement of lodge staff.
All clients are met at the airport on arrival and dropped off on departure by Dawid or one of his team. This service is inclusive, and field preparation of trophies is included in the daily rate. The current daily rate for a one-on-one hunt is US$450 per day, and a two-on-one hunt is US$350 per day for plains game. In the Caprivi the daily rate for dangerous game is US$1,250. Numerous package deals are also on offer.
Both the vehicles are well maintained.2 x Toyota Land Cruiser pick-ups

Trophies are skinned, salted and stored in separate sheds made of brick, very secure, and 100% vermin proof. These facilities are well ventilated. Once dried the trophies are stored separately and tags are used for identification. All the skinners have at least 6 years experience. TAU Taxidermy is recommended. However, trophies can be shipped to the clients own taxidermist of choice.
