On our way to Namibia for PG with Elandpro Safaris. My boy now 20 will be making his second foray to southern Africa and will be my 8th trip, second to Namibia. The boy is after a couple things he didn't score on in RSA in 2014 and I of course after the ever elusive (to me at least!), eland bull. I did take a cow in Zim in 1996 but the bull has thus far been quite safe from my attempts, hope to change that once and for all this time and have great confidence that the jinx will be gone. Yes, I know how easy eland are to find when not looking for them and know that many here almost had to shoo the massive herds away when they were spoiling hunts for other critters, but it hasnt worked out that way for me. Spent a little extra dough this trip for better seats, flying Delta all the way but for the short hop from Jo to WDK, which is SAA. Not first class or anything but Comfort seating on the overseas legs and exit row seats on domestic. Every little bit helps on these long and brutal flights. Due to arriving in WDK a bit late, we will grab a room overnight and take off for camp the next day. Due to the flight schedules we have an extra day anyway so may as well use it to advantage. I shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a rifle until day two anyway as it takes me a couple days to recover from the travel. So anyway, depart the 27th and back around the 11th of August. I will get to have my first birthday in Africa! Turn 64 on the 6th Aug. Of course pix and report upon return.
