Folks I would like to share my hunt with Roy van der Merwe at Otjandaue Hunting Safaris Namibia It’s been a busy year so I’m running a little late with the report. To start out I would like to say Thanks to Roy and Janet for a wonderful time and making Deb and I feel so welcome. You see in 2010 I did my first hunt to South Africa for my 55th Birthday and I’ve been back to South Africa several times Sense but I have never been to Namibia and had been talking to Roy for several year about doing a hunt with him. Yeah sometimes it takes me that long just to talk myself into cutting loose of some of those retirement fund which made this hunt kind of special due to the fact that it would start what was not only my 62nd Birthday but the very first day of being fully retired 2 June 2017. This was just to be a 5 day hunt to get our feet wet only had 2 animals on the list a Damara Dik Dik for me and a Mountain Zebra for Deb. Well we arrived in Windhoek late night on the 31st of May Roy and his Daughter were there at the airport to meet us as we came in, and because it was so late Roy had Organized and overnight stay at a bed and breakfast there in the Windhoek area so we got settled in and got some rest from a very long flight. The Next morning Deb and I got up and walked down to the eating area to have Breakfast and coffee and the good lord knows I need my coffee. By the time we got back to the room Roy and his daughter were waiting on us so we loaded up and headed out to Roy’s place at Otjandaue Hunting Safaris on the at Otjandaue River I laugh when I say that because this time of year it is dry and they use it for a road but I only recommend crossing it at well packed areas in anything other then a 4 wheel drive. We arrived at Roy’s about mid day so we got settled in to our room and had lunch. After lunch Roy took us for a ride around the place to show us what it was like, lots of thick brush but none of those rocky mountains we were climbing on the Eastern Cape. When we got back to the lodge Roy got out the rifles we would be using, as I hate the hassle of bringing rifles through Customs so most times we just use the loan of a rifle. I would be hunting with a 22 Mag and Deb would be packing Roy’s 30-06 and we went to the range to get familiar with them.
