i hunted there for trophy ele 4 years ago almost got skunked and we hunted our asses off 4 12 days -but-buff 1st morning sci goldSo like many of us, Covid killed my 50Th birthday present to myself. 11 Days in Caprivi Strip with Omujeve Safaris. But I refused to give up. In late August I booked Qatar Airlines for arrival on OCt. 1st, the first day they were flying back into Namibia. Then South Africa opened up and I guess the airline did not have a lot of people booked. On Sunday Sept. 20th, they canceled my flight on Sept. 30th. They are not flying direct from Doha to Windhoek until Oct. 15th. On the phone early with Lori from Travel Express and I am now rebooked on Ethiopian Airlines on Sept. 27th. Use her she is great.
Area: Mashi and Bamunu Conservancy.
Animals on Permit: Non-Trophy Elephant, Trophy Cape Buffalo, Trophy Hippo, Red Lechwe, Kudu, Impala, Wildebeest, zebra
PH Gideon Cloete who I have hunted with before in 2016.
Travel is a bitch with no internal flights, once I land it is a 12 hour car ride. But since Namibia relaxed the quarantine rules we might make a two day trip. I would like to just get it out of the way and hunt the next day.
Just excited to get out of here. I will have a hunt report. But in the meantime they have a great promotional video. I have only watched it 50 times during this COVID mess.
For anyone thinking about it, I would suggest do it. The outfitters and communities are hurting and need the hunters. there are some great deals going around. PM me on a trophy elephant, cape and hippo deal they have. Good luck everyone.
The caprivi camp starts at 6:45
MMAL - what was it like traveling to Namibia, etc, w COVID-19 pandemic? I have a Zim hunt in late June, early July - cape buff - and very curious if you felt safe, etc. Thanks for any color on this.
