It's a non-trophy hunt, maybe with a trophy or two to add to the memories.

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.

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 .

You won't be disappointed with choosing Kowas. We just left their place last Monday. This too was my first trip to Africa and I am glad we chose Kowas. I am currently typing this on the Delta flight 201 from South Africa and I am sad that the trip is already over. We spent 2 weeks total with them touring Etosha with Danie and Ansie for the first few days and then I hunted for 9 days with Mathieus and Jacques. Took 11 animals. It was a fantastic trip. If you have the time, talk to them about going to Erindi Game Lodge and staying there for a few days. We overnighted there on our trip to Etosha and the place was amazing.

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.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
