Oh Yeah!

I bet this deal from www.tjsafaris.com will make your eyes water.

We have a great opportunity at an even better value than usual. Due to the excellent rains in Namibia this year our outfitter in the Kalahari Desert is absolutely teeming with game, and they need hunters for their management hunts to help reduce the herds of gemsbuck, and springbuck.

They asked me to take our normal ?management hunt? and throw in an extra 6 animals!

This package is a total of 22 animals:
6 Kalahari gemsbuck
14 Kalahari springbuck
2 steenbuck

Spend 5 days at their first class lodge in the Kalahari for only $5050.00 for a 1x1 or 2 hunters may split the 22 animals and hunt 11 animals each 2x1 for $2525 per hunter!

Air fare is approximately $2000 - $2500 round trip per person in economy.

You may be able to do a bit better if you do your homework, but the above prices are about average. (US to Upington RSA)

This is not only an excellent value it is a great opportunity to take some great trophies, because even at those prices they will let you take 2 trophy quality animals of each species.

This outfitter has 2 Kalahari Gemsbuck in the SCI top 10! They also routinely take SCI Gold Medal Kalahari springbuck.

This is a great last minute opportunity please call us today toll free at 866-470-0470 or go to our web site for more details and photos of game and accomodations:


According to kathi@wildtravel.net
708-425-3552
SAA has a deal on flights to South Africa right now for $875 from Dulles!

Of course you'll still have to take another flight to Upington RSA then get a 3hr drive to Namibia.

Of course there's no way I could do this right now but what an incredible deal someone's gonna get!

Leo,

Has anything come into the waterhole for you? I've seen one bird, that's it! The wind blew a few ripples across the top of the water...I'm not so sure I'd hunt this waterhole. I'll keep watching though. It's fun have this on the screen while I'm pushing paper. :yes:

Yea, I just saw that - it looked like some kind of antelope, but it had a white circle around it's rump.

Oh, and don't forget the truck load of people that went by on the road to the right and well beyond the waterhole - that was interesting.

Now this could be addicting! The person running this camera does the zoom in and panning the area thing and that's adds. The birds singing as caught more than one person in my office this morning!

White circle around it's rump is the distinguishing mark of a Waterbuck.

JJ,

Just imagine actually being there! The sites and sounds bring back memories. But you can't smell the air or feel the breeze.

BTW, you can actually smell waterbuck. They smell like new motor oil.

Kudu's bark and it will make you jump first time you hear it.

Man Leo, that sounds like heaven to me.

Q. What do you get when you cross hunting and NASCAR?

A. A Waterbuck!!!

Did you guys see the owl eat something out of the pond? And later those "yote" looking critters?

Wow.
