The future of Safari Hunting in Botswana

The director of the Okavango Research Institute, Botswana is Professor Joseph Mbaiwa. His research area covers tourism, rural livelihoods and conservation.

In this 3-minute video he explains how communities in Northern Botswana lost 75% of their income when safari hunting was closed in 2014. This had a devastating effect on the livelihoods of the people of the region.

NamStay: Like I told Hoas the other day, I really appreciate the information that you post. Thank you.
I saw this video previously and the professor makes a good case. Wish the antis would watch it.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
