Medical evacuation insurance???
I'm going on a plains game hunt in Namibia. Do you think that a medevac policy is advisable? I have selectively had them for other travel (business as well as hunting trips). If you think it's prudent to have a policy, which company do you prefer? The two that I know best are MedJet Assist and Global Rescue.

I think that it is advisable for any international hunter to have such coverage, it's great piece of mind not only for you but for your loved ones back at home.
I personally highly recommend Global Rescue as they provide the most comprehensive services.

Gather the info. from both sources and compare.
I am a relatively healthy person and I get the insurance for the sake of my brides peace of mind and my own.
It's insurance. If you really need it, it will help save your bacon.Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!
