There was the unfortunate accident this spring with Christie De Sousa, the owner and PH of Christie's Adventures based in Namibia.
Just wondering if anyone knows the status of this outfitter, are they still operating?
I have a deposit with this outfitter for a hunt for 2015 and am trying to finalize some details and have not been able to get hold of the person in charge with emails or via phone for the last month.
Also interested if anyone did a hunt with this outfitter for 2014 and any feedback.
Any info would be appreciated.

Namibia is a BIG COUNTRY with a few people BUT in Namibia we are all like one big family. The accident of Christie was very bad for all of us. His wife Madelein is still on the farm. I can provide you with her telephone number if you inbox me.

gpelkhunter you will love Namibia. It is my favorite place in the world outside of Texas! The people are wonderful and the landscapes are amazing. I hope you will feel as at home there as I do. I am headed there in September and can hardly wait.
Regards,
Philip

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
