Why Choose Us
At Sesembo we pride our self on ethical fair chase, walk and stalk hunting and well managed naturally occurring game.
We harvest free range animals that have the opportunity to escape and avoid hunters just as much as the hunter’s chance of getting close enough to harvesting an animal. Our conservation plan of selective harvesting ensures that we protect the wildlife population for future generation hunters to have the same experience. Sesembo is a small company managed and guided by the owner with more than 10 years’ experience in the tourism industry, thus insuring personal attention to every exclusive group in camp. Sesembo’s camp is a perfect family friendly adventure were the young can learn about nature and the importance of conservation hunting.
Hunting is our Pride and Passion
In the words of Hemmingway, The Green hills of Africa 1935, "Now it is pleasant to hunt something that you want very much over a long period of time, being outwitted, out-maneuvered, and failing at the end of each day, but having the hunt and knowing every time you are out there, sooner or later your luck will change and that you will get the chance that you are seeking."
At Sesembo Hunting Safaris we offer an exclusive safari adventure in the beautiful Namibia, with its wide open landscapes and lush animal life.
The name Sesembo is derived from the Sesame Bush (Sesamothamnus lugardii) which is found in northern Namibia - a spectacular bush used by the local people for its medicinal value.
Just as this bush boasts its unique beauty standing out among the crowd, Sesembo Hunting Safaris aims to please both the first time hunter as well as the passionate life long hunter by offering a unique free range hunting experience, guided by a experienced and energetic professional hunter (PH), Ruan Botha.

Outside the entertainment tent, we have the bushman tv, where many nights will be spent talking about the hunting day and reliving the stalks and thrills of the day. This is where all the new memories are engraved forever under the star saturated skies of Namibia.
The Sesembo’s latest addition is the swimming pool area located perfectly to watch the animals coming in for a drink at the water hole during the heat of the day while lazing around or having a sundowner to end of a long day.
Sesembo’s camp is designed to cater for both the rugged hunter who wishes to be close to nature and it sounds, and the leisured hunter who prefers a bit of clamping and modern luxuries. Whichever hunting style you prefer, we can assure you that at Sesembo you would have the time of your life.
In 2011 Ruan graduated with his bachelor’s degree in marketing and tourism management. 2012 he started off as a Junior Assistant lodge manager and by mid 2012 was promoted to Lodge manager, but his heart has always belonged to the hunting industry, thus in 2013 he started a full time hunting apprenticeship to gain as much knowledge and understanding about the industry as he possibly could. After qualifying as a PH he did free-lance guiding all across Namibia building up experience in all fields of hunting, the different hunting terrain and techniques, which led to the inspiration to build Sesembo bush camp at the end of 2016.
