    Hi all, first what an informative site and forum. :)

    I am planning a trip Namibia this year, I think in late august or early september.

    My main aim is to go for a big kudu bull, which I am willing to work quite hard for, and from what I understand is Namibia one of the best countrys to get that.

    I am also going for a mountain zebra, springbuck, steenbuck, oryx and then maybe one or two more trophys, that are undecided, I will see what opportunities I get.

    Can you recommend any agencies that are fairly prices, not nessesarely the cheapest, but also not the most expensive.

    My lodging I don´t care that much about, as I am there for the hunting mainly not for sitting at the lodge ;-)


    I have been recommended Neuhof safari, does anyone have experiences with them?

    I would like that the place I go is not a "put & take" but instead the wide open, or at least big areas.

    I have also looked at Namatubis Hunting Safari, Kowas hunting safaris, Otjinke hunting ranch, anyone experiences with these?

    I will be bringing my kal. 270 with swift a-frame projectiles, I guess that should take care of most plains game?

    best regards
    Rasmus Nielsen

    Moring Rasmus,

    I have been a hunting in africa for quite some years and have a good adress where I have been before and will go back to this april.
    Name is Namatubis, you'll sleep under canvas(de luxe) and plenty of game around.
    Namatubis Hunting Safari | Thuis-Pagina will direct you to them.
    The owner/ PH Koch Pretorius is an okay guy.

    thank you all for the advice and PMs.

    I have chosen to go with Japie from Neuhof Safaris, because my good friend Alberto Feu Hereu (former Tanzanian PH) recommended the place for me.

    I will be going for
    kudu, oryx, springbuck, mount. zebra, hartebeest, blue wilderbeest, steenbuck and warthog.

    Can´t wait til September!

    cheers
    Rasmus

    Of the outfits you mentioned, I know a person who has been to Africa 22 times and he has hunted with Kowas. He said they are a top shelf operator and he will be going back there again. I plan to hunt with them in the next year or two. Good luck.
