    If the budget allows, you should consider taking home a Oryx (Gemsbok) and/or a Red Hartebeest. They are plentiful in Nam and trophy fees are reasonable.

    Namibia seems to be a great place for hunting.

    Beer and Brats in Swakopmund, and Erindi game park are a must.
    Oh, while in Windhoek try to eat at Joe's Beer House, it's a lot of fun

    Thanks for all the replies; I've booked a trophy Kudu and may add an Oryx if possible. I hope to do some wing shooting, and possibly try for a 'MacNamb' - it would be great to use a shotgun rifle and a fishing rod in one day.; I just need to check whether there is any potential for fishing at Kowas.

    Enjoy. After my first hunt there, I will be returning soon. You'll love it. And 50 is the new 30, so get to it!

    Be careful of the thorns .
    Watch out for the wine .
    And take as much cash as you can , for that extra animal or two that you swore you wouldnt shoot .
    Have a great time , but i know you will .
    Cheers Dory .

    Agree re: Erindi. It is well worth spending the time in the reserve.

    Ditto on Joe's Beer House - very unique, nothing like it.

    We are going to spend a few days at Swakopmund after our safari, and hope to do some fishing; beer and brats sound good! Thanks for the tip about Joe's Beer House; that could be the ideal place to spend our final evening in Namibia.
