The Minnesota SCI Expo is always a great place to discover awesome hunts. At a past Expo, I met Makadi Safaris and booked the hunt of a life-time. Based in Namibia, they are known for great leopard and plains game.

Ron & Mary Simon

On August 17, 2015, we (Mary & Ron Simon) took off on a wonderful African adventure to Namibia. With any three week trip, there are unknowns and trepidation as to how it will all go and we had those feelings with this trip. The good news was, all concerns were removed as we meet first Hugo and Willa and then Julika.


Due to the natural variety of our landscape and the privileged site, it is not only easy for us, but also our most precious task, to satisfy all your personal wishes for your special safari.

“The hunt was even more than expected. Great PH’s, great trackers and skinners! Well planned, well executed, well organized! Already making plans for my next hunt.”

“The beautiful sunrises and sunsets were stunning and will be forever etched in our memories of this wonderful place. We enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend Makadi Safaris to anyone who wishes to come to Namibia for adventure of a lifetime.”

“After a perfect day at Ilala, we were surprised to discover it could be even better in Makadi. A big thank you to the team.”

Ester & Alano

“Thank you for your hospitality. We felt like we were home in Spain. We had so much fun in our first safari hunting in Africa, we will come back for sure. We are very happy to spend some days of our honeymoon. We will never forget these 5 days. Thank you so much. Muchas Gracias.”

Pat & Nancy Bollman

“We’re so sad to leave! Our week with you was truly a magical experience. The beauty of the camps, Ilala in its grandeur and Makadi with its game rich plains and bushveld. But most of all Nancy and I will miss the warmth of your friendship and the fun and laughter we shared. Making memories was the best!”

Nestor Speranza

“Thank you for this unforgettable and unique hunting experience in this amazing country. You have a spectacular place with challenging hunting, great accommodation, breath –taking scenery and the most important thing, you have a beautiful family.”

John Stanley

“The whole African Safari you have provided at Makadi and Ilala have exceeded my expectations in every way. The hunting was outstanding and your hospitality is the best. Thank you for making this father/son trip for me and Dan special”

Dr. Ed Belknap

“Wow! Bucket list #1 has been fulfilled! Awesome! I will be back for a dedicated bow hunt. The service here was excellent and I take my hat off to my PH. 10 days was a lot of personal time and experiences and stories and jokes. I will have lots of memories and now I need to go buy a new house so I can find a place for all of my trophies. Thank you!”
