    Cool! It’s a hard decision. For me, experiencing particular environments is as important as the species on my wish list. Either way you choose I bet it will be amazing!

    Welcome Vaughan! What is on your wish list? Namibia offers the finest in real, old style hunting for free range plains game. North Western Namibia is the only area where you will find Kudu, Oryx, Mountain Zebra as well as Damara Dik-Dik in their natural habitat. Happy planning

    Cheers mate,
    My wishlist is mainly a Kudu and Oryx at not much else at this point. I am particularly drawn towards Namibia due to the old style free range hunting though I am a Bowhunter and it seems most outfitters want to put Bowhunter's in a blind which doesn't particularly interest me.

    There’s a well-known Aussie bowhunter named Al who prefers stalking to sitting in the blinds (although he’s done both). He’s done a fair bit in Namibia. Also, hit-up Marius Goosen at KMG Safaris here on AH as he is a dedicated walk-and-stalk bowhunter himself. It sounds like a ghillie suit would be the go. Good luck!
