Question about non-hunting wives on DG safaris
I did a PG hunt (my first safari) in Namibia in 2008. My wife accompanied me and enjoyed it immensely. She was with me in the field most days, but we spent the vast majority of our day in the vehicle, and when we did leave the vehicle for a short stalk, she waited in the truck for us to return.
I am now planning my next safari, this time principally for Cape buffalo and likely to Zim. I'm not sure how things will work with my wife this time around, however. Neither of us want her to stay back in camp all day, nor would we want her to remain in the truck by herself for hours while we stalk buff (I just don't believe it's safe). However, she's not a hunter, so she's not used to moving with stealth, and she'd be another human to be seen, heard or smelled by our quarry. I'm also not certain how some PHs would feel.
Any actual experience in this area that can be shared would be greatly appreciated.
