Wildlife Bill Workshop
The Wildlife Bill Workshop will take place on 28 September 2017 at the Vineyard Country Lodge just outside of Windhoek en route to the international airport (next to River Crossing Lodge).
Our venue had to be amended from the NAU Boardroom to the Vineyard Country Lodge, due to the number of late registrations received.
Starting at 08h30.
The participation fee is N$150.00 per person, payable in advance.
HuntiNamibia - support our magazine
Our magazine, HuntiNamibia has been published for the past 18 years and we look forward with great excitement to read the 19th edition shortly. This informative booklet has become a collectors piece for many.

The 2018 edition will be sent to print early October, therefore if you would like to advertise or submit an article, please contact Rieth van Schalkwyk at Venture Media.

World Rhino Day - 22 September
World Rhino Day is annually celebrated on 22 September and people around the globe find ways to contribute to the conservation of the dwindling rhino population. A few weeks ago, the Hunters United Against Poaching Trust made a similar effort with their International Anti-Poaching Auction and Gala Evening, where a life-sized marble rhino sculpture, created by French Artist Gé Pellini, was put up for auction.  Although the rhino sculpture was not sold on that evening, it remains available on the auction website (auction.huaptrust.com) and can be viewed at the First National Bank, Parkside Branch in Independence Avenue, Windhoek. It will be available for auction until 28 November 2017.
