The van der Westhuyzen family and staff invite you to come experience the thrill, the adrenalin, the awe of being alive in this ancient land! We cannot wait to welcome you to the Namibian wilderness. We offer luxury accommodation at both of our game lodges: Veronica and Kalakwa.
The Aruga lodges are game-rich farms offering unique hunting terrains. We have an abundance of self-sustainable game and a host of species. Our farms are home to interesting species such as the Caracal, Wildebeest, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, Giraffe, Leopard, Ostrich, Warthog and two species of Zebra. There are multiple antelope species inhabiting our farms, such as the Blesbuck, Eland, Hartebeest, Impala, Klipspringer, Kudu, Oryx, Roan, Sable, Springbuck, Waterbuck and more. Absolutely nothing goes to waste after a plains game hunt. We give to nature, and nature gives back to us.
We source the best dangerous game areas in the north-east of Namibia so as to ensure your best chance on a quality big game trophy.
The Zambezi region is one of the last remaining free-roaming areas. This ecoregion, once known as the Caprivi Strip, is a combination of open grassland and freshwater swamp. It supports an abundance of wildlife including big game species such as Buffalo, Crocodile, Elephant, Hippo, and Leopard. However, this area also has a vast supply of plains game including Baboon, Red Lechwe, Reedbuck, Spotted Hyena, and Chapman’s Zebra. Hunting in the Zambezi is a 10-14 day experience.
