"Next Safari"

Where and when is your next safari?

I am going in 2013 to Namibia. Hopefully placing a deposit this week. It will be strictly a plains game hunt. Most likely greater Kudu, Oryx, Red Hartebeest, Springbuck, Mtn Zebra and who knows what else will show itself.

Meeting with my buddies this week to discuss. We have narrowed down to two places and I think it is like flipping a coin to decide.

Hopefully, leopard in 2014!
Red hartebeest, springbuck slam, zebra, eland, kudu, warthog, hyena, bush pig,
caracal (one can dream), gemsbok, and maybe waterbuck.

I'll be most excited to just share the whole experience with my sons, dad, and friends. Shooting animals will be secondary!!

I will be going to Namibia with Savannah Safaris Namibia or Omujeve Safaris (Nic & Corne Kruger). Done a lot of research and I think it is a coin flip at this point. I am leaning one way and my buddy the other.

If you don't have a South Africa place picked out check out my hunt report on the AR forum in the hunts report section entitled "Blaauwkrantz 2011". Absolutely amazing. The place I will take my son when he is old enough.

Five of us (3 hunters) with Omujeve Safaris from May 14-30th. Plains game with emphasis up to eland, zebra, and kudu. Probably include some meat culling and varmint hunting as well.

Blank, are you hunting at Omatendeka or at the Omujeve lodge and around that area?

We want to focus on the conservancy, Kudu, Oryx, Sprinbuck, etc. Would gladly take a big Eland, Warthog and Impala at the ranch. Buddy wants a black wildebeest and I will be looking for a bigger blue wildebeest.

Hunting both Omatendeka and Omujeve, and if time allows may even go to Schonbrun. May stop for a day or two at Erindi and see our friends the Jouberts, and take wives on some photo and biology trips. Always go thru the carvers market at Okahandja and load up on workworkings too.

Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris Namibia is an outfit in Namibia.

Have any of you ever looked into hunting there? if you have visited africahunting.com and enjoyed the website then you know Jerome Phillips. He owns a very large place in Namibia and that website of course. What I like about him is that he is financially set and doesn't need to make a fortune off animals to make a living. He has tons of leopards and only hunts a fraction of them. He averages 98% success on leopards and only charges $9800 for a 12 day leopard hunt with everything included. There is no other outfit in africa that does leopard hunts for that cheap. No you won't get a monster leopard but you will get a really good one. His kudu, gemsbok, and other PG animals are just as cheap. I really want to hunt there one day but as for now I'm kinda booked up. I've price shopped and noone I've seen is near as cheap on animals and the gemsbok he kills are monsters!

This year I'm taking my wife to zambia for her sable, eland, bone zebra, waterbuck, and impala. Then we are going to zimbabwe for 21 days to hunt leopard over hounds, croc, hippo, buffalo, kudu, eland, zebra, giraffe, warthogs, and baboons.

Stinky, thanks for the post. I will check into them. That price on leopard seems to good to be true.

Koyote, I admire people like you that can go back to the same place each time. I would gladly hunt in RSA with the Rudman's again but I want to see new countries, species etc and know that there will only be so many Africa trips. Most likely will always be a new country and outfitter for myself.

I lied the leopard hunt is 12 days at $550/day daily rates and $4000 trophy fee when you kill a leopard. kudu are $1200, gemsbok $700 zebra $900 etc. normal non leopard hunting rates are $395/day but for oryx at $700 and the 40 inchers he takes I think his trophy fees are dang good.

here's a link to a leopard thread he started on his site. He actually posted several videos he just recently took of cats on his place that came in to ground blinds during the day. Its a pretty cool thread.

I will be hunting South Africa later this summer with my family. My 8th safari overall, but the first time back to South Africa
since 2004. A simple plains game safari, but I am expecting great fun and getting more shooting for my family than myself. I will, of course, be hunting also. Perhaps a caracal and red hartebeeste will make a mistake in my presence? Kind of fun and relaxing not to be worried about particular species, but just to enjoy the hunt.
Bill

Stinky,

I hunted Ozondjahe in May 2009; was my first trip to Africa, and it was a blast. Jerome wasn't there, but his father was, and he invited me and my hunt partner to dinner one night at his personal residence, which was an experience in itself. Very pleasant gentleman; doesn't speak a word of English, so we had an interpreter (he's French); but enjoyed hunting stories all night in his plush outdoor veranda/bar.

Meals were absolutely first class throughout the trip; staff was pleasant and very attentive to detail and they provide private bungalows that are very comfortable.

The manager at the time was Peter, a German fellow that was about the most humorous PH I've ever run across. Unfortunately he has moved on to another outfit now, and I don't know who is running the show there currently. Their abundance of game was staggering, and yet their range condition and habitat was in fabulous shape. Still, we did run into evidence of poaching--mostly wire snares and a few 3-legged animals that had run into them as well, but overall it was a great experience.

My only regret was not taking a Hartmann's mountain zebra--I had the first-timer image of a striped horse, and it didn't appeal. Then when I discovered how ridiculously difficult it was just to spot one of those things, let alone make a stalk, it was a whole new game. Unfortunately, I didn't catch the bug until late in the hunt and we never could get on one.

However, I took first-class kudu, impala, warthog, steenbok, blue wildebeest and a giant gemsbok. Of course they treat jackals as coyotes and encourage you to shoot all you have opportunity to take. My partner took a fabulous leopard and we actually saw two other leopards in the course of our hunt. as well as cheetah, which are also surprisingly abundant there.

Also, if you're into bird hunting at all, this is the place--several species of francolin, quail, guinea fowl and sandgrouse as well as three species of doves. The owner loves to eat guineas so we got a few free shoots in under the guise of filling his freezer for him...

All in, I guess I'm recommending this outfit to anyone who would consider going. If Africa weren't such a huge continent and my funds and time so limited, I'd go back to this place again in a heartbeat.

Thanks for that write up. It would be nice if you would post a kind word for jerome over on africahunting.com in the outfitter review section. He's a great guy and I wish him the best. Unfortunately I already booked my 2013 hunt. Im going with kanana in botswana. I'm getting a package deal. 5 people for 10 days for $6,000. package include 2 trophy kudu, 1 eland bull, 1 blue wildebeast, 1 zebra, 2 trophy gemsbok, 1 red heartabeast 1 impala, 1 warthog. in addition extra trophy gemsbok are $500 each and blue wildebeast are $200 each. I haven't seen a deal that good in a long time. Its gonna be a blast.

HELL NO! You wanna hunt I will get one more package for you just say the word! You should see all the eland he has. Its insane. He estimates he has over 1500 kudu on half his property. The trail cam pics show kudu between 55 and 58" are everywhere. PM your email address and I will forward you his trail cam pics. Check this one out. These are mostly eland and it was one group that was running together. They weren't herded together by the chopper mind you.

I am in camp at Kanana right now with 3 days left to hunt. I pretty much have everything in the bag except for Kudu. I have passed on more good bulls than you would believe a first timer possibly could, but I have laid eyes on "the one" and I am holding out for him. With 3 days to devote to him, I am confident that we will take him.
You will absolutely love this place. It is truly awesome in every way.
Jason Bridger and his entire staff have made me feel like a part of the family here. I return next may for yet another package here.
gone huntin'

Congratulations on a great safari, don't forget to write a good report with pictures upon your return.

Stinky, that place Navaluk hunted is pronounced Mtumba, even though it is spelled Mto Wa Mba.

Navaluk, you mentioned taking the four species you wanted, given that you hunted Mto Wa Mba and also Mt. Losiminguri, I'm guessing there is a good buffalo and perhaps a lesser kudu and gerenuk in there somewhere? Would love to read a report and see pictures.

It was a great hunt in Maasailand. Glad I did it before they are completely overrun with Maasai,and their cows and goats. Everyone is gabbing on a cell phone while packing their stick and spear, watching their way overgrazed land blow away. Hunting was great. The goal was spiral horns and I got the Maasai Bushbuck, Patterson's Eland, and Lesser Kudu. I also got a dandy buffalo on the Mountain. I'm not a buffalo fan, this was my first and unless I go back here probably last, but they are fun to hunt when your on the mountain and you never step into a vehicle during the whole hunt up there. That pretty much ruins any Zimbabwe style diesel buffalo safari for me.
I did get some other Maasai species including Wildebeest, Zebra, Grants and Thompson's Gazelles. I saw lots of Gerenuk but I held out for a monster to match in class my 31+ inch Lesser Kudu. I saw oryx and hartebeest but not the real old ones that I look for.
A great hunt that I would definitely do again, and I do not go back to the same place twice. We started the trip by getting use to the time difference. Seeing Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater was the way to go. We actually saw 5 of the last wild Black Rhinos in Tanzania. This was in the crater. They say there are 20 in the Crater and no others left in Tanzania, but I will bet real money they will be gone in less than a few years. This area must have really been something 100 years ago when only maybe 5 % of the population of people and cows/goats lived there.
Some anti-wildlife do- gooders are teaching the Maasai to farm so they can have even more kids, goats and cows. They have turned about a third of the Great Engaruka forest into 1930s American dust bowl. I am very glad I got to see Hemingways haunts before they are turned into dust and dung.
