Not a bad way to wrap up a day.

Good luck, enjoy!

What airline did you fly and how was it? It's about time for my wife and I to get tickets for our Namibia trip

It started with United and ended with Ethiopian. I HIGHLY recommend contacting @TRAVEL EXPRESS. They are a sponsor here. My itinerary changed 6 times from the time I booked it until I left. Each time Jennifer handled everything. I never would have been able to manage it on my own.

I’m taking advantage of the rare combination of a few minutes of idle time and internet coverage. This trip has exceeded my wildest dreams. @Jaque Spamer with @JKO HUNTING SAFARIS has gone above and beyond to make it a success. We’ve still got a day and a half so I can only imagine what other opportunities we may be presented or what else I may experience.

How was the experience with ethiopian? Did you take your own guns?

Just returned from a trip to North Western Namibia and was mightily impressed with the quality of the bush.Namibia is certainly a bucket list hunting destination!

Mate I fell in love with Namibia. The Kalahari, Gobabis region and Etosha national park. The culture, the people and the hunting left nothing more to be desired in my books. I would go back in a heartbeat if finance allowed it.

I agree fully, lets not forget Namibia is the World Leader today in proper wildlife management, managed by science and not emotion. Game behind every bush, it was an amazing experience. Cant wait for the report, up to date info is very scarce in these crazy times and in need of some safari to fuel the passion. Dam good job Mr Telford and JKO.

I had to fly Airlink from OR Tambo . The Alternative is Westernair but it only flies Tuesday and Thursday.
I did the covid test at Path care medical center. It was as easy as walking in and filling in a two page document. The only unpleasantness was getting an earbud stuck up my nostril! Results were emailed to me before I arrived in Windhoek!

Bob it is a truly unique place. Where I was in Opuwa the Himba tribe still walk around in their traditional kit! Ladies are bare chested and covered in Red Ochre. It’s the real deal and not just for tourists since there aren’t any ! For the men a stick/club/panga is deriguer and there is surprisingly very few cases of violence.

So do you bring a negative test upon departure or you have to get it done when you arrive? What I had heard so far was everyone showed up to the airport leaving the US with a negative test and thats all that was required?

Mike you will need a negative test to allow entry into Namibia and then one for leaving Namibia. Basically a go /no go test that is required of most travelers by the airlines. In both instances it should not be older than 72 hours before your date of departure.

How was the experience with ethiopian? Did you take your own guns?

Overall Ethiopian was not bad. I did take my own guns and that was the source of the one negative aspect of traveling with them. Despite being told that the guns would check through on our stop in Addis Ababa they escorted us to the baggage handling area where we had to identify our check bags and show our 4457 forms. This caused us to have to go through security multiple times and we were very tight on our connecting flight in both directions.

I was required to have a negative PCR test no older than 72 hours old to enter. I flew home on Ethiopian via Addis Ababa and did not have to test when I left. I suppose testing requirements on departure depend on the airline and the route you are taking on your journey home.

Thanks for the info! We will be taking our own guns so fingers crossed no major issues especially on the way there!

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
