    Part 5
    The camp:

    Everything is brand new, great quality and had an high standart.
    It is not in the (standart) quality as an normal sA / namibian Camp, it is mutch higher.
    Coolers, boxes, ventis, pp. enough water (and hot) at every time of the day.
    (Of course: It has no pool or spar, gentleman, we are in the middel of an hunting area.)

    New tents, from bed to the nets.
    Big campfire place and "restaurant" with everything you need (from books to balistol).

    The kitchen ist great.
    Great food three times a day ("what you want") in 5 stars quality (Im on sport-dieat now, so I used it in my way)
    All kind of softdrinks (I think I hold the record, more than 200 colas light) and an great collection of alcohol (from wine to an complete bar, witch I dont used).

    Steaks, BBQ, every second night.
    The rest we had eaten game meet or chicken. If had special wishes, it was no problem also.

    Hello everyone,

    First I would like to thank one of hunters from Germany, Frank for the great pictures of the camp! I hope that he continues with his story and that he can fill in details that I am not at liberty to state on a open to the public forum!

    We had a very disappointing series of hunts. The community disappointed us greatly, they were allowed to roam and cut thatching grass in our prime hunting areas, cattle invaded all of the water points as the people and the cattle came in the game left. We also were in a struggle with the Staff of the adjoining National park and the "anti hunting NGO" who seem to be running the park! Then there was the internet hacker who diverted a deposit from Germany it ended up in Nigeria, bye, bye $5,000.00!

    We hope to have these problems under control for the future, be assured we will take no deposits on future hunts, unless we know that we will have full co-operation from the community that we are trying to support. We plan on meeting with the proper National Parks representative concerning their staff and the NGO operating in the national park.

    If the above mentioned problems are addressed we will be doing our hunts earlier in the year in 2019 probably starting around 1, April. If the problems cannot be addressed we will not be operating in the Mucheni Conservancy, we will loose, the community will loose, but most of all the wildlife will loose.

    Cheers, Lon

    Very sad Lon
    I know you to be quite passionate about this project. Seems like antis pop up every where these days and you are correct that wildlife becomes the ultimate loser. Hopefully with your tenacity it will work out
