About NAPHA

Namibia Professional Hunting Association

The Namibia Professional Hunting Association was founded in 1974 in order to promote Namibia as a hunting destination internationally and protect the right to hunt locally. Today NAPHA has over 300 Hunting Professionals as registered members. The Association has an excellent working relationship with the Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism and is instrumental in forming new legislation.

History

A proud 41-year history of ethical, reasonably priced trophy hunting of the highest standard in Namibia has revealed that sustainable utilization of wildlife resources has been a major factor in protecting our game populations. Even depleted game species, which formerly populated areas of Namibia, have been re-introduced through effective game management based on the principle of conservation through selective hunting. NAPHA is therefore convinced that man’s oldest cultural heritage, namely hunting, carried out through sustainable game utilization, is an effective tool to ensure the survival of wildlife and the well-being of local communities.

The Namibia Professional Hunting Association was founded in 1974 in order to promote Namibia as a hunting destination internationally and protect the right to hunt locally. Today NAPHA has over 400 Hunting Professionals (Hunting Guides and Professional Hunters) as registered members. The Association has an excellent working relationship with the Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism and is instrumental in forming new legislation.
 
 

High standard of ethics

For the international hunting clientele, one of the main attractions of hunting in Namibia is the high standard of ethics maintained by the Namibia Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA). All hunting resorts are under the strict supervision of the Directorate of Resource Management of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET).

Mission Statement

The fundamental purpose of NAPHA is to enhance and maintain, by effective management, an organizational infrastructure that can serve professional hunting members, clients and other interest groups. Our intent is to ensure and promote ethical conduct, sustainable utilization of natural resources, and to secure the industry for current and future generations.

The Association insists that its members provide the highest standard of professional service to international hunting guests. They are expected to hunt strictly in accordance with the ethical principles as stipulated in NAPHA’s Hunting Code. The Hunting Professional is at all times encouraged to act responsibly towards nature, wildlife and the local population.
