    That first trip to Africa is always special. Looks like you spoiled Eliot. How is he going to top this on his next safari? Congratulations on a job well done.

    NAMIBIA: A family Vacation With Shona Hunting Safaris

    Your welcome! If my memory serves me right, I recall reading a hunting report of your trip a few years back.... These family trips get more difficult as they get to be young adults and lives of their own. You were wise to take your children when they are young.

    NAMIBIA: A family Vacation With Shona Hunting Safaris

    Thank You. Yes, it was good value for the dollar spent. My wife really wants to go back with our whole family. So, you see my dilemma. For the same money, go on a buffalo hunt by myself or take the whole family and hunt plains game. I guess the buffalo hunt will have to wait a few years....

    NAMIBIA: A family Vacation With Shona Hunting Safaris

    Ragman, Greetings and Thank You. I also hunted the Eastern Cape in 2013, so I share your dilemma! To answer your question, I think the Kudu population, in the area we visited, is doing fine. We saw kudu nearly every time we went out and we did see some very fine bulls. Rabies is a cynical thing...

    NAMIBIA: A family Vacation With Shona Hunting Safaris

    Your welcome! I don't have much advice. I think that family dynamics are different for everyone. Also, it is a lot different traveling with young teenagers vs young adults. Patience is important. Having a PH who understands family dynamics is also important. Perhaps focusing on trophy animals...

    Relaxing on the deck of our chalet

    My wife enjoyed relaxing on the deck of our chalet. Savana, the dog was ever vigilant in chasing over-bold baboons and dassies.
