About Us

Kowas Hunting Safaris is situated in Namibia, “the jewel on the face of Africa”... Namibia is one of the most stable democracies in Africa. The infrastructure is compared as the best in Africa, i.e. medical service, hospitals, road and telecommunication, full cell phone and internet reception. The population of Namibia is 2,3 million people in 2010, spread over a vast surface of 824 269 km² (twice the size of Texas). Our populations are known for their hospitality and friendliness. The national language is English.


Kowas Hunting Safaris operates from a privately owned property called Kowas, which is about 17 000 acres of wildlife-only area. The Kowas lodge is also situated on the Kowas property. Kowas, however, forms part of the Dordabis Conservation area (Conservancy) consisting of a massive 400 000 acres. This area is blessed with a large variety of wildlife species. Twenty one (21) game species could be hunted in the Conservancy area. Kowas are situated one-hour’s drive from the International Airport (called Chief Hosea Kutako Airport). Kowas borders the central highlands and the famous Kalahari semi-desert area.

Hunting at Kowas

Danie is a born Namibian. He spent his childhood days in Kavango/Caprivi (Northern Namibia) area, where his father was the first cattle trader amongst the black tribes in the Kavango and Caprivi region in Namibia.

He became a passionate hunter from age nine where they had to hunt almost on a daily basis to provide meat to the cattle herders. After his studies, he became a business consultant and was later appointed as CEO of the Investment Holdings group of Companies in Windhoek, Namibia. In 1996, he returned to his lifetime passion of conservation and hunting.



With Ansie’s assistance, they transformed Kowas to a wildlife paradise and established the trophy hunting business, Kowas Hunting Safaris, in 1999.

Danie served on the executive of the Namibian Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA) for a number of years. In 2005 he was elected as President and served for a period of two years.

From their marriage, two sons were born, Morné and Jacques. Both boys completed their studies successfully at the North-West University in Potchefstroom (PUKKE), South-Africa.

Morne obtained the BCom Law (Business Law) degree. He furthermore follows his dream by being now in the final phase of his studies towards the Mechanical Engineering qualification. Jacques (Professional Hunter) obtained the BCom Marketing and Tourism Management degree.

Both Danie and Ansie love people. Ansie is known for serving the best cuisine. Her quest for detail makes any stay at Kowas an unforgettable experience.
