It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we inform you, PH John Wamback, from Namibia Pro-Guiding & Hunting Safaris has passed away on Saturday 10 July, due to Covid 19.

John was known as one of the big lions in the hunting industry and he will be missed by all. Our lives were changed forever when we met our friend John many moons ago. He was a force for good in this world and always surprised us with his friendly approach to others, no matter the situation. John lived a life full of adventure and vitality and this is how we will always remember him.

Our hearts are filled with sadness, but our memories are filled with smiles of the good times we shared over the years.

A finer man I have not met. John was always doing for others before himself and proud of his family and strong Christian beliefs. A trailblazer in the Namibian PH community leaving a legacy of fair chase and respect for the game. The hunting community is a better place because of him and I am proud to have called him a close friend for over 2 decades.

The bull in my avatar was with John in Coutada 10, Mozambique in 2002. Sleeping in small tents in his old buffalo camp in the flooded coastal plains. We seemed so young, then.

I am still trying to process the loss of this man whom I thought would never die.

Hi,
I remembered you mentioned a dealer in Gauteng regarding a Rigby 350? May I ask who that is? I’m a collector of rigby rifles. Many thanks. John
I am alive and trying to find some hard-to-find reloading dies in .475 #2 (not Jeffreys)
Hi, I’m going on a Leopard & Lion hunt, I’m taking my 338 Blaser mag loaded with 225gr Nosler Accubond moving at 2850ft/s. Will the Nosler Accubond be an excellent bullet on this leopard & lion? Thanks
