    58 days left until Namibia . Hunting the moon phase this year so the normal May departure was pushed into July. In all the years I have gone through Johannesburg I have never stopped at anywhere but Afton guest house. Blend in when you go out . Buy springbok shirts and try not to look like a lost tourist . Shopping in Johannesburg will be more adventurous and probably cost more than the safari . Have a great time .

    I have Kudu, Red Hartebeest, Blesbuck, Bushbuck and Impala on my list and I am also open for Steenbuck, Duiker and Warthog if I get a chance with my bow.
    Or maybe something else :)
    I am open minded to whatever and what I can afford :)

    Number one on the list for my son and I are Buffalo then maybe Burchells zebra after that it's pretty much whatever presents itself. I think that once we have our Buffs down the rest of the trip should be a nice relaxed armed vacation. My oldest daughter has decided to go along and is planning on taking a zebra, she says that's all she wants, we'll see how that works out.

    My list includes whatever mature animal walks within range of my Mathews bow. (as long as I can I afford it/them.) Record books are not important to me, rather a mature animal that presents a good shot. Let's see...hmm I like Kudu, Gemsbok, Eland, Blue Wildebeest, Black Wildebeest, Impala, Warthog, Zebra, Waterbuck, Hartebeest, Jackal, and Springbok. No expectations just hoping for a good experience and maybe some good shot opportunities.

    milford,

    I'm not sure where you're staying, but if at the Afton house they can arrange for the ladies to spend time at a curio shop. The shop sends out a driver to pick you up / take you back. The shop is probably a bit more spendy then it needs to be, but it gives you something to do.

    Being a Harley rider, I also found a HD dealer in Sandton if I remember correctly. Had to pick up the obligatory t-shirt.
