Established in 2012 by lifelong citizens Jaco Viser and Wiehan van der Merwe, Nkwe Safaris is the premier hunting experience in Botswana.
You will be emerged in a true, unparalleled hunting adventure alongside one of Botswana’s most experienced Professional Hunters, native Kalahari Bushmen and our professional camp staff.
One of our expansive hunting areas encompasses 45,000 hectares (roughly 90,000 acres) near Ghanzi, approximately 2.5 hour drive from Maun. The rich diversity, and abundance of unsurpassed quality of trophy species is only part of what makes Nkwe a return destination for many of our clients. Our Okavango area is a massive 250,000 hectares (roughly 600,000 acres). Home to thriving herds of buffalo, elephant, antelope and cat species it is guaranteed to give you an exclusive hunting and viewing encounter as only the Okavango can do.
Jaco, your host and P.H., is the essence of a true hunter. Born and raised on a farm in the Kalahari bush he found his passion and honed his skills from an early age into one of the most experienced and knowledgeable dangerous and plains game hunters in Botswana, leading over 350 elephant hunts. Beginning his professional career in 1996 he has spent over 20 years in the industry pursuing his dream of building the best safari experience in Botswana. A country rich in tradition and culture, Nkwe is proud to continue to hunt with native indigenous people, many Jaco himself was raised with, and utilize their instinctive abilities giving you a hunting experience unlike any other.
