Your welcome! I don't have much advice. I think that family dynamics are different for everyone. Also, it is a lot different traveling with young teenagers vs young adults. Patience is important. Having a PH who understands family dynamics is also important.Thank you for the post! It looks like you had a great adventure. I appreciate hearing what your spouse had to say, my wife and kids and I are going to Namibia this June.
Do you have any other tips of what to do/not do for one’s non hunter spouse?
Ragman, Greetings and Thank You. I also hunted the Eastern Cape in 2013, so I share your dilemma!Congrats from a fellow Stubble-jumper!!! I really enjoyed your report, especially the great photos. My first safari in 2014 was also in Namibia, in the Omaruru area. Not too far from where you were hunting. My PH was from Outjo. I was fortunate to be there following some good rains and it was nice and green. However it was also during a pretty severe rabies outbreak in the Kudu herd. How is that situation now? If I am ever able to go on a third safari, I am very torn between returning to Namibia or the Eastern Cape of RSA. I really want both!
Thank You. Yes, it was good value for the dollar spent. My wife really wants to go back with our whole family. So, you see my dilemma. For the same money, go on a buffalo hunt by myself or take the whole family and hunt plains game. I guess the buffalo hunt will have to wait a few years....You got a lot of value for your hunt dollar....and your fotos are very nice.....thanks for posting and congrats..............................FWB
Your welcome! If my memory serves me right, I recall reading a hunting report of your trip a few years back....Thank you for the report. It brought back many fine memories. I took my family of six to the same area, different outfitter though. Congrats on a memory that you and in the family will remember for a long time.
