I would really look into what experience you want to remember. For me, it was unfenced country. With my thin wallet that meant Namibia. The kudu and springbok and gemsbok there get bigger. There were also natural and historic things that really added to the experience. For me, coming onto petroglyphs while hunting really added to the experience. A PH that you click with makes it all come together.
Short answer Central Namibia for kudu. Give a thought to some little guys for truly fun hunting for lower animal costs. They can be harder won trophies than the big ones. Just bring home euro mounts or the horns and skull plates. Shipping and processing is crazy expensive.
Did i mention big kudu and central Namibia?

Take a peek at the Duckworth family's free range Coutada 9 area in Mozambique for large kudu, nyala, etc... The name of their outfit is Mokore Safaris. They have done a wonderful job with anti-poaching and conservation. Prices are reasonable for daily rates and trophy fees. Kudu running everywhere and lots of other species. Should be able to get a 50"- 55" bull.

Well it's official - we will be off off to Limpopo Province come July 2020!

Thanks again for all the sage advice and pictures.

Appreciate your info and feedback, I looked at some European websites to try and get info on the value of this particular Steyr. Further input from you on it's value would be appreciated as you have a bunch of them. I assume you collect the Steyr Luxus for a reason ---they are a finely built rifle.
I’ll never hunt Africa, but give me please a Jack O’Connor hunt up high in the Canadian Rockies!
Just came from a hunt and already longing for the bush
