Cultural Heritage in Bow Hunting
Namibia is an amazing place to hunt, and its cultural heritage is a must-see. As a hunter myself, I know that it’s important to learn about the country’s history in order to better appreciate the hunting experience. To get a leg up on your competition, you need to have accurate information on both the animals and the people who live there.

What is the Cultural Heritage of Namibia?
The culture and history of Namibia is a rich and diverse mixture of different cultures that have come together to form one country. The history of Namibia spans over 2,000 years, and there are many different cultures represented in the country. Some of the most important cultural groups in Namibia include the Ovambo, Xhosa, and Zande peoples.
The history of Namibia is also full of stories about bravery, strength, and honor. Some of the most famous events in the nation’s history include the Battle of Swakopmund in 1879, during which a group of Ovambo warriors fought against white settlers; and the Battle for Ein Sof in 1990, during which a group of Xhosa rebels fought against government forces.
It was first discovered by Europeans in 1584, but it wasn’t until 1872 that they formally became part of Germany. From then on, German rule over Namibia was unchallenged.
However, from 1960 to 1990, there were multiple attempts by South Africa to establish control over Namibia through annexation or military campaigns. In 1990, however, South Africa ceded control to Namibia due to political disagreements between the two countries.
One of the most important aspects of Namibia’s cultural heritage is its wildlife. Many species of animals live within the boundaries of Namibia: including lions (which can be found throughout much of central and southern Namibia), elephants (which can be found near Swakopmund), crocodiles (which can be found all around the Central Region), gorillas (found only in the Simi Hills), and Lions (the national animal).
Additionally, many other species are found within local areas but are not registered with conservation organizations like the World Wildlife Fund or International Union for Conservation OF Wildfowl and Amphibians because they do not fall under their category as closely as these four aforementioned animals do.
In Namibia, bow hunting is a popular sport that is used to hunt game such as Wildebeest and lions. The traditional way to hunt these animals is with a bow and arrow.
How to hunt?
Bows are effective weapons for hunting big game due to their fast speeds and the ability to hit small prey from a long distance. Hunting trophy animals with a bow is also a common practice in Namibia.
