    Hi, my name is Jeff and I live in Northern CA. My son-in-law and I are planning a trip to Africa in mid 2015. So far I have gotten a lot of tips here. We are looking at 2 different guides. 1. Somerby Safaris and 2. Ozondjahe Safaris. Has anyone out there any info or input on either of these outfits. THANKS

    Welcome to AH.

    I'll be setting foot in Namibia once again this June to see Ozondjahe Safaris close up for myself.
    I am very much looking forward to seeing the mountains and hearing the birds again.

    I'll certainly let everyone in on my adventure. Possibly during the trip, if the internet is fast enough.
    Most certainly after my return.

    Welcome Jeff

    Can't personally speak for Ozondjahe Safaris but I know Drom and his wife from Somerby Safaris for a couple of years now and they run a very professional outfit. They are very friendly and will help you plan your trip every step of the way. I can also tell you first hand that their hunting areas are first class and they deliver top quality trophies.

    Enjoy the upcoming trip in 2015!!!!!

    I actually met them recently at the International Sportsman's Expo in Sacramento. Yes, they are very nice people and I was very impressed with their outfit

    Hi Jeff, I and 3 of my friends hunted with Somerby in May 2011. It was our first trip to Africa and it was amazing! We are booked to go back in May of 2014. Everything is top notch with their outfit. From permits, to special needs or requests, to quality of game, to amazing country, and of course the entertainment. You wouldn't regret booking with them.
