    It's still about 42 hours but today is (just) Monday and I fly on Tuesday.
    I have a nightshift to finish, pack my gear and get some sleep as well as several other things but it's nearly here.

    I'm fortunate enough to be heading back to Namibia for the fourth time in as many years and I'm looking forward to it as much as the previous times, new places and new experiences await.......

    Thank you Gents.

    Mark, this year I'm hunting with Omuramba Hunting Lodge in the Omaheke region. It's north east of Gobabis and about four or five hours drive from Hosea Kutako.
    There is only one reference on the forum that I have found and no information on hunting, more of a passing comment.

    My target animals are whatever presents a good opportunity to hunt. I have preferences, I've never hunted an Impala, Blesbok, Burchell's Zebra, Eland, Steenbok, Duiker so there are a few to get started but I'm just happy to be in the bush with my rifle over my shoulder and see what happens. If I get the chance to hunt something different than I have before so much the better but I'm not too worried. I'm there for the experience and a good time!

    Have a great trip. I’ve hunted in Namibia four times and head back for trip #5 in May 2019. Eland is my #1 target and a close #2 is Impala. Here’s my 2017 Eland: CA7E4A7D-E4DB-4B0A-82A8-819E194AF6A0.jpeg

    And wheels down again .
    After an all too short seven days of hunting I am back home now with only the memories and photos of an absolutely outstanding experience in the Kalahari.
