Monday 8/19/2013: arrived Eitaalo, checked the rifles and relaxed and enjoyed the first of Anel's gourmet cooking.
Tuesday 8/20/2013: I took a Zebra (30-06) and a Black Wildebeest (375).
Wednesday 8/21/2013: my wife took an Oryx (30-06) and we all enjoyed a great sunset.
Thursday 8/22/2013: I took an Eland (375) and a Steenbok (375) (please no jokes about the hair as it is my best Jack Nicholson imitation) and my wife took a Blue Wildebeest (30-06). Along the way we spotted a herd of Giraffe!
Friday 8/23/2013 we both hunted all day and got nothing. Very Windy day, btw.
Saturday 8/24/2013 we paid a visit to the Taxidermist (Trophaendienste - Taxidermy Trophy Preparation Namibia) & saw troupe of Baboons outside the state house Windhoek.
You might imagine the jokes regarding the Baboons and the irony of them hanging around Namibia's main legislative building and presidential residence.
We also did some sight seeing in Windhoek, had a great lunch at a place called Joe's and visited some tourist traps.
Sunday 8/25/2013 I took a monster Warthog (375) and my wife took a Red Hartebeest (30-06).
Monday 8/26/2013 I took a Springbok (30-06) and a large Greater Kudu a.k.a The Ghost (375).
Tuesday 8/27/2013: headed to the airport for the long ride home, exhausted but happy.
Not bad for 6 days of hunting !!!
