Qatar airways is pretty cool. I flew Jnb to Doha to Dallas last year. We were late leaving JNB even though we were one of only two planes leaving that day! Anyhow I missed my connection but they made a plan so within minutes of me landing in Doha I was met by ground staff and redirected to another flight which actually saved me 2 hours of travel time! I will use them over Emirates any day!
Enjoy your hunting with Jaco and @NKWE SAFARIS. Botswana is the ultimate African Magnet that keeps pulling you back.

Flying Qatar from Philadelphia to Joburg via Doha. Than airlink to Maun. First time using Qatar Airways.

Matt - How was the flight? Were there a lot of passengers on the PHL-Doha and Doha-JNB legs?
I have taken this route on Qatar a few years ago and I am thinking about booking this for August 2021. Just curious how full the flights are.
Enjoy your safari!

Please tell Jaco hello from the Austin, Texas gang! Wishing you a great hunt.

No flights were not even close to full. I’m used to the JFK route to Joburg with South African Airways. Qatar was great just a lot longer.

For those who have taken this route already…how was it with your own firearms?

I’m a PA res who is booked for May 2022 and I am hating to have to use Delta now that SAA is not running across the Atlantic

If you haven't already, check out Nat Geo's many shows on the Okavango (the wife/kids have Disney channel where you get NG for free, or you can pay extra to view on NG channel!) LOL I've passed on to PH friends in neighboring Namibia where the River flows through their own park... Get a pic with Ronnie Blackbeard! 'Have some 80s-90s videos of Peter Capstick's in Bots-really fun to watch. Enjoy!

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
