Hi there. I live in South Africa. We are planning a hunting trip to Namibia soon. Came here for some advice.

You won't get any advice from me. I abhor hunting and all those who participate in it. And I will limit my response to that though there is sooooo much more I'd like to write.

Hi dewalds86 - You will find most people on this site are anti hunting while others (like myself) are not pro hunting but understand its conservation value in some circumstances/areas.

However we do (mostly) try to be civil, welcoming to all who want to participate in the forum, and understanding of all points of view (even if they don't match our own).

 

Looking forward to your contribution.

Warning, if any safari camps wish to employ me as a guide, I expect a salary far, far, more commensurate than my actual experience!

@dewalds86 Welcome to Safaritalk.

 

I think ZaminOz is correct that most, but not all, here do not support hunting, although we continue to debate the pro's and con's vigorously in many threads.

 

Whether any of our members can give you guidance on where to go etc is questionable, but I am sure there are many web sites that can offer the type of advice you seek.

 

In the meantime enjoy Safaritalk for what it can offer which is a font of knowledge on wildlife, safari countries and camps/lodges, both Africa and elsewhere and the opportunity to discuss some thorny wildlife and conservation issues.

I would keenly welcome anyone who wants to discuss the situation about controlling rhino poaching

@COSMIC RHINO If you want to discuss the controlling of rhino poaching, please start a thread on the subject in the most appropriate forum.  Thanks.

Hi, probably not a lot of advice on the actual hunting part here.  But you could get some hints on renting vehicles or places to stay pre- or post- hunting trip.

 

There are a variety of viewpoints represented here and you can add yours too.
