The Gobabis region of Eastern Namibia is known for it’s excellent sandgrouse shooting. Two species,namely Namaqualand and Burchell’s sandgrouse frequent this area and seeing flocks of up to a thousand is not uncommon.
Sandgrouse are considered an elite and very challenging bird to shoot, they are also very time specific and the best shooting is between seven and eleven in the morning.
Sandgrouse are shot around small pans and waterholes, we place our butts 70 to 100 yards from the water and never shoot the same location twice on consecutive days. This is done to minimize disturbance to our bird population.
Strict bag limits and seasons apply on sandgrouse in Namibia.
With sandgrouse being primarily a morning sport, your afternoons will be spent either on game drives or shooting doves and Guinea fowl.
