Thank you for obtaining our opinion in this regard.
The average tipping in TOTAL for all our employees from clients, must not exceed 5% of the accommodation cost and the trophy cost of their safari.
We then divide (not equally, because the PH's receive more) this 5% to ALL THE EMPLOYEES.
We then issue VOUCHERS (for record purpose so that no one accuse anyone not receiving the tips).
These VOUCHERS are being handed to the client. The client in person gives each employee their own vouchers.
By handling it that way, the advantages are:
a) the client hand the tip direclty to the employee;
b) the employee receives the tip directly from the client;
c) the vouchers are being documented and signed for - track record excists and no one is to blamed for anything.
This system is effective for us for many years. We recommend it strongly.
Kindest regards from Namibia, Africa.
I saw you note on "tipping" and after reading dozens of articles and discussing this endlessly with other hunters I would be very interested to hear, specifically your views or rather what is an acceptable gratuity practice at Kowas.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
