    When heading to Namibia you should read something relating to Namibia. I would recommend ASK THE NAMIBIAN GUIDES BY DIANA RUPP. There is hardly a better book if you want to hunt in Southern Africa. Lots of informations on all aspects of hunting, provided by highly experiened Namibian professional hunters. Also excellent advise on rifles and calibers.

    For RECENT publications, you can read ALL four of Kevin Thomas's books. RWAKKY soecisp stuff in them and an easy and very instructive read.
    " There's something about Buffalo" is my favourite!!

    "African Game trails", and "Death in silent places", I have! And read!
    "Safari - the last adventure" and "A man called lion", most probably will be my next in collection!

    Its a pity to keep them in a box, unless just received!:sneaky:
