Namibia was my first destination and that will never be erased from the memory banks. First African sunset with the Otavi Mountains in the background.
Namibia tended to be somewhat lower trophy fees but add a day and another plane flight depending on how you fly there.
Go through Frankfurt and you drop right into Windhoek, skipping Joburg. Flight costs about the same.
Gun import is much simpler.
My target species determined where I hunted. I wanted to hunt them on natural/hostorical habitat/terrain if I could.
1. Gemsbok/Oryx, Kudu, Eland, Warthog in Namibia. Low fence.
2. Nyala, Kudu, Bushbuck, Reedbuck, Impala in KwaZulu Natal. Large property high fence.
3. Springbok, Blesbok in the Karoo, low fence.
4. Impala in Limpopo, low fence.
They all had very special features about each property and each type of hunting.
Stands, stalking, driven hunts.
Like Ses said, if you can do 10 days do it. I can not imagine being on that dam* plane and not staying long enough to forget it between arrival and return flights.
Good luck in your planning. You are getting great advice from the members.
