    All,
    My wife and I are planning our 20th anniversary trip and have always wanted to go to Africa. This forum has provided a wealth of information but the planning can be overwhelming so I am looking for some help.
    We are looking to make a trip late August / early September 2019 if all things come together or summer of 2020 at the latest. We are looking at a 7 day safari split between 4 days hunting / 3 days touring or vice versa.
    We would fly into Cape Town or Johannesburg, South Africa or Windhoek, Namibia.
    I would like to hunt the following plains game: kudu, gemsbuck, blue wildebeest, impala.
    For non-hunting activities, we are open to day / night game drives, visit a park with the Big Five, possibly visit the coast, fishing.

    I understand not all can be accomplished in 7 days but would like to harvest 2 or 3 of plains game mentioned above and definitely tour a park with the Big Five.
    I am open to others suggestions. Please feel free to provide any other ideas. I would love to hear from some of the outfitters on here about any packages that could be put together. Thanks for your time and consideration.

    First suggestion: extend your trip several days at minimum. It takes time to travel between attractions. Don't make it so rushed.

    You'll get plenty of suggestions. Have fun planning.

    Thanks for the responses. I will be in touch. Wish we could do longer than 7 days but family and work obligations won’t allow. It just provides another reason to go back again!

    Hello Sir,

    I will work on a proposal for you and send it this evening. I do believe that Namibia is the perfect destination for this kind of trip.

    20 years? I’ve had to wait for my 25th Anniversary, and that’s another 9 long months of waiting.
    I have booked with Game 4 Africa and believe that I have a great deal. With tours added by request.

    I must admit I had plenty of nice offers and out fitters are certainly working to get our business.

    I think the catch is that you get hooked and want to return. Not such a bad idea but I will pay for this trip first.

    I read the mistake is “thinking we can go once. “. The other important quote “You can’t take it with you and the kids will only waste it”

    Have fun and leave some animals for me.
