You're in good hands with Jacques. I've hunted with him several times and you will have the time of your life. Good luck, take us some good pics!


It is irrelevant what you think. What matters is the TRUTH.

Jim; there is wifi

Working on a proper write up for when all is done, I've been journalling everyday. No spoilers until I'm back and able to post the full story and photos.

We see huge number of buffalo everyday with herds numbering as large as 300 animals. Lechwe are abundant as are Impala. Everyday we see elephant, hippo, crocodile, kudu, tsessebe. Camp is wonderful, the food is good and Jaques the PH, Peter and Humphrey the trackers and Wayne the chef are first rate.

NWT outbound was no issue as the firearm was checked all the through therefore no problems

As in my story posted above not being checked through to Calgary despite my insistence and assurance of Eurowings staff in Namibia I ended up having a chat with the German Police about my illegal importation of a firearm
