A Flying start & DREAM HUNT at Ibenstein

It is a true & real flying start when visiting Ibenstein. René, the owner of Ibenstein Farm and Safaris was flying his Glider when we came for our first visit. How cool is that! You can certainly have a dream hunt with Ibenstein Safaris.

It is just a fascinating experiencing Africa from above and as he came back, he was all smiles. He encountered a leopard from above. A large leopard running upwards on a mountain cliff as he passed with the glider. I just got goosebumps the way he explained it to me and I could clearly see from the first moment his passion for wildlife and this encounter.

A 45 minutes drive from Windhoek, we crossed the dry riverbed called the Skaap river (Sheep river), to get to the farm homestead where Anny and René operates. The riverbed is at least 100 metres wide and it creates a very fascinating and ambient feeling when you crossed it. I have passed through this area so many times and I never realised what a true gem is hidden from the road. It really impressed me. I can understand why a hunter can dream about a hunt at Ibenstein.

Kremena and I went to visit Ibenstein in November 2019. Throughout Namibia a severe 3-5 year drought was hammering all farms and everywhere the atmosphere was in survival-mode.

Even that, René was accepting this and fighting to maintain a balanced conservation system for his livestock and wildlife. I felt a lot of optimism from him and also made me believe that it will end soon, which it did! The rains looked promising.

Accommodation at Ibenstein

Before getting to the most important part, which is what the 50 000 hectares of hunt area can produce, the accommodation side of which is also overwhelming with new and old combined.

The area is spacious and time alone is not a problem. The old style farmhouse is filled with an artistic ambience and it welcomes both the hunter and non-hunter or observer. It certainly makes a wonderful family setting and not just for a single hunter.

Hunting at Ibenstein, book your dream hunt!

I can see myself spending 10 -14 days on farm Ibenstein easily. It is surrounded with Mountains and savannah plains. This makes it suitable for most African species. The stalk hunter would love this area! You will experience so much nature in one go, that you would find 14 days not long enough.
