    Welcome to the site you will love it.

    As sestoppelman stated the website isn't much help, you cannot click on the sidebar to get any info. Nice Kudu though.

    You're right indeed nsok. Sorry for that wswat, seems it works on some computers and others not. Hopefully I will have it fixed shortly, currently working on it in a different program.

    Website

    I've finished, say a third of my website. Still need to do a lot of work.

    Home part finished. Hunting part some work done, rules and regulations, essential information, huntable species finished. Working on packing list. Rest nothing done. So, a lot of 404 errors will occur.

    Hope this one works!

    I think You have done a great job so far. I Like the pics on the terrain section and its pretty cool you put the references in there own type. Informative, neat and easy to read.

    I do have one question, How did you come up with your logo? It does not look like you offer bird hunting and Usually I see a game animal if one is in a logo. There must be a reason You chose a white wedding style dove. Is there a story behind that? I am not saying there is a problem with it, I was just curious. When I look at your icon on this website it does not make me think of hunting. JMHO

    There is actually kind of a story behind the name/logo. In our district almost all the farm names are Herero names, one of the native languages in Namibia. And by far the majority of ranch names in the area starts with Oma- or Otji- or something as such. (The original farm name is Omaue) And my parents did not like that, because now you have a long list of names all starting with O-something so they decided to go with Rüppell, which is an endemic parrot in North western Namibia. I guess they also thought of the difficulty foreigners sometimes have to pronounce these Herero names.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Thanks for the name explanation....makes perfect sense to me....and why other safari names start with Oma or Otji.

    Yes it looks good now even on my computer which was made on Mars, about 4000 years ago! The only thing I would say as an observation is that most will put trophy fees in their excluded list and I dont see it there. Everyone here will know that trophy fees are extra but some people may not. Nice job!
