Welcome to Phillip Laro Hunting
My Name is Phillip Oosthuizen. I am a master hunter and guide in Namibia. I grew up in a hunting family. Since my childhood, I have had an intense interest in nature and I grasp every opportunity to spend time in the bush, to learn about the fauna and flora surrounding my hunting grounds.
I started hunting at an early stage in my life and hunt professionally since 1997. I was blessed with numerous opportunities to work, live and hunt in different areas of Namibia, and parts of Africa. I see every opportunity as a challenge.
I operate as a personal, professional hunter/guide and will tailor-make your safari based on your preferences, operating on hunting concession areas within Namibia.
I’m fluent in Afrikaans, English and German

Essential information on hunting in Namibia
The Namibian Trophy Hunting season opens on February 1 and closes on November 30 of each year. Clients should ensure that they are booked and will be hunting with a registered Namibian operator, as well as a registered Namibian hunting professional.
Hunting professionals should comply with all the Ministry of Environment & Tourism’s (MET’s) trophy-hunting regulations.
Recommended NAPHA Guidelines
Book and hunt only with a NAPHA member and an operator who can prove that he is registered with the Namibian Tourism Board. Consult the annual Huntinamibia magazine or refer to this website for a complete membership list.
It is highly recommended that you enter into a written and signed pre-hunt agreement/ contract mutually agreed upon with your trophy-hunting operator or agent.
It is recommended that you request to see your trophy-hunting permit prior to commencing your hunt. If no permit has been issued, your trophy export will be jeopardised. All trophies taken must be checked and signed by the hunting client and the hunting professional on the trophy-hunting permit on completion of the hunt. There is no limit to the number of firearms that may be imported into Namibia for trophy-hunting purposes.
Requirements for importing firearms
Refer to the Namibian Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA) website for required minimum muzzle velocities for firearms for various game species. A maximum of one-hundred (100) rounds of ammunition may be imported per hunting rifle. Only ammunition for the specific caliber may be imported. It is legal to hunt with black powder rifles in Namibia. (Refer to this website for the black-powder hunting regulations.). It is illegal to transport black powder and percussion caps. These can be purchased in Namibia. Inquire with your trophy-hunting operator. It is legal to import bows for bow-hunting purposes. No import permit is required. (Refer to this website for the Bow Hunting requirements.).
Travelling with firearms to Namibia
Take out full insurance for all firearms before travelling anywhere in Africa. NAPHA recommends flying directly to Namibia from Europe into Hosea Kutako International Airport near Windhoek. This will minimise delays associated with firearm transport. Air Namibia offers a direct service.
Recent regulations have made travelling with firearms a time-consuming process when entering South Africa. Make sure that you stay in transit with your luggage.
