I'm in the same boat as I'm planning my first safari ... also to Namibia. I like the idea of hunting game in its natural habitat so I'll be concentrating on kudu, gemsbok, zebra, impala and springbok. I will also be taking some extra money reserved specifically for the chance of the PH tapping me on the shoulder and whispering, "That's a very nice eland." Although eland is not a priority for me, I think I'd be remiss if I hunted good eland country and didn't take a fine trophy if presented the opportunity. If the outfit I end up booking has Damaraland Dik-dik available, I'm sure I'd want to try for one. I'd also consider red hartebeest, blue wildebeest, steenbok, warthog and blesbok. So, after getting some advice from those with plenty of experience, I'll concentrate on indigenous game and have some extra cash on hand for being able to hunt what the country offers. It seems what most say is the best course of action.
