Game Capture

Namibia Helicopter Services has the most experienced game capture pilots in Afica, with more than 30 years of collective experience amongst them and more than 10 000 hours logged on game capture. We routinely assist with locating, darting and collaring of large mammals like elephant, buffalo and rhino. Our techniques evolved through years of experience and we are pioneers in elephant capture and relocation.

Game Census

Game counts, done in a 2 or 4 seater helicopter, can provide the game farmer with valuable information for game farm management. We supply the necessary equipment for a game count and fly to GPS grid positions which are programmed before each count.

Aerial Filming & Photography

Namibia Helicopter Services provides a stable platform for aerial photography covering the whole of Namibia. Our pilots have an excellent knowledge of the country and can assist the client with specific needs and information. Aerial film work is done for local and international productions and our clients include Discovery Channel and National Geographic as well as various adventure-based companies. We operate throughout Southern Africa and have the capabilities to operate in challenging environments.

Surveying

We do aerial surveys and inspections for construction companies building power lines, roads and dams. Aerial surveys are especially effective where access and remoteness are limitations.

Slinging

Erecting towers on top of inaccessible mountains does not have to be a problem. Namibia Helicopter Services can sling your equipment and material to the most challenging terrain in Namibia. Our pilots are specifically trained for such operations.
