ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This hunt was the pinnacle of my hunting career. It was really only a Lion and buffalo hunt as I still didn't have a Lion, and I could hunt Cape Buffalo every day the rest of my life. I hunted with Mike Angelides, who is the Gen. Manager for Danny McCallum Safaris, in addition to being a Prof. Hunter with the company. I have known Mike for 20 years and finally hunted with him on this hunt. He was confident the Lukwati North Block would produce a big old lion for me, and he didn't exaggerate. There were a lot of Buffalo and a lot of Lions, but the highlight was actually hunting with a PH who has experience and knows exactly how to find and hunt lions and cats. He was outstanding in all regards, and amazingly, a better tracker than even the "trackers". The company had excellent and near new equipment and cars, and camp staff was professional and experienced. Nothing could have been better! I would highly recommend anyone wanting a Lion to hunt now, and specifically with Mike in this Block.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
My wife and I combined a few days of touring and hunting in Namibia with John and Anneli Wamback of Pro-Guiding. We spent a few days at John's new main camp in the Erongo Mountains. The camp is still a work in progress, but the client's tent is finished and very comfortable with bathroom facilities. The view of the mountains from camp is impressive and food prepared by Anneli was excellent. The day after our arrival, we loaded our backpacks with camping gear and set off for a half day hike. We had two zebras walk right past us that afternoon, but we agreed to no hunting on the hike in. We spent that night out under the stars. The next morning while hunting our way back to the main camp, John held a klipspringer's attention with a distress call, while I stalked in for a shot. The next day we made a very long hike that resulted in a mountain zebra. The backpacking portion of the hunt was not actually necessary to access remote areas as we stayed within relatively close proximity to roads, but it added a unique element to hunting African plains game. It was a fun way to hunt and a highlight of the trip. The next leg was a drive down the Skeleton coast and a few nights in Swakopmund touring the dunes, seal colony and doing some shopping. We then drove from the coast almost to the Botswana border on the east near the town of Gobabis. The area is cattle country, predominantly flat and has much thicker vegetation than in the mountains. We hunted for eland and hartebeest for 2.5 days and had several shot opportunities on hartebeest. We saw many female and young eland but did not get a shot at a good bull. My wife shot her first warthog which was the highlight for that part of the hunt. We saw some very good kudu & oryx, but I was not looking for them on this trip. We stayed in a guest lodge in Gobabis that was clean and comfortable but not fancy. We were surprised at the excellent food served in the lodge restaurant. Overall, the trip was very enjoyable. Hunting in the Erongo Mountains was fantastic and we were glad we spent a few days touring in addition to hunting. John and Anneli worked very hard to make it a good trip.
