    Hi all,

    Recently joined to start gathering info for a Namibia hunt, looking at 2021 or possibly 2022. I’m an infrequent hunter but frequent shooter and avid reloader. My goal is to find an outfitter that will give me a true stalking and hunting experience. I’d rather spend days on a track and come back empty than drive up to an animal not afraid of people that was farmed and dropped off just to shoot. Not interested in big numbers of animals in one trip or necessarily the biggest trophy, though not going to pass on one! My top animal goals for this trip are kudu, zebra (possibly more than one) and gemsbok, in that order. Second tier would be nyala, red hartebeast and eland. My wife is neither a hunter or particularly outdoorsy, and I’d love for her to come if there is an outfitter that has a nice lodge and good food she could hang out at, though the hunt is the priority and if I can’t find both will plan the trip with a friend.

    Obviously, am spending a ton of time searching the forum for info, but happy to take referrals, suggestions or links to reviews, websites, etc.

    In any event, glad to be here and thanks in advance!

    Welcome to AH rosecitymike! If you’re wanting a long spot and stalk, you may want to consider moving the eland up your list.
    I’m sure you will find an outfitter here from Namibia that can meet your requirements.
    Best of luck!

    Eland is probably 3a on my list. I have heard the same from my friend who has a double mount (bull and cow, if that’s what male/female are called).

    Welcome from a fellow Oregander!

    I'm going to Namibia in September for my first trip. I'd be glad to share my experience with you when I return if you would like.

    Welcome to AH!
    I hope that you will enjoy planning your hunt, and find the perfect destination.

    We have several hunting areas over Namibia, two of which is mainly our plainsgame hunting destinations.
    We would love to host you and your wife, and I'm sure that your wife will have a great time in our beautiful lodges.
    If your wife would enjoy a trip to the coast, or visiting a National Park, we can also make arrangements for that, so that she gets to explore a little bit while you are hunting.
    I would love to show her around Namibia.

    Please contact us @ info@jamyhunt.com if you would like more information.

    Regards,
    Kirsten Lotter

    Welcome to the beginning of your African Addiction, there are many enablers on AH. I am sure you will find an outfitter here that will help you on your journey. Good luck.
