Game Sought But Not Taken:
Game Condition Comments: We saw plenty of all species hunted, enough that we were able to choose the animals we shot. We were first-timers in Africa and are not really in a position to comment on game abundance or quality. However, although we are not trophy hunters and only sought to shoot mature, good quality representatives of the species, Nick tells us that all animals taken were very good quality and many were gold-medal level. We did not measure any of the horns.


SERVICE RATINGS (excellent, good, fair or poor)
Quality of Outfit: Excellent Guide/PH Ability: Excellent
Condition of Camp: Excellent Condition of Equipment: Excellent
Quality of Food: Excellent Trophy Care: Excellent
Name of Airline: Delta and South African Airways Airline Service: Excellent
Airline Comments: No real problems, although when we returned to JFK the Delta rep was not real sure of firearms procedures; SAA was absolutely excellent all the way around.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: None
Highlights of Hunt: All animals were fair chase with no high fences; PHs and trackers very familiar with animal habits in the 5 or 6 large farms we hunted (smallest was about 60,000 acres); food and accommodations first rate; saw many species other than the ones hunted.
Equipment Recommendations: A range finder might've been useful a couple times.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? The whole experience was absolutely wonderful with no glitches or shortcomings we noticed. I've done a half-dozen guided hunts in the US, good hunts, but they can't compare with the service and cost. We're going back. My 2 sons hunted with me and my wife came to watch. She loved it all. They limited it so we were the only ones in camp.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Let me first say that I enjoy The Hunting Report and the service you provide.
Last Monday Flora & Fauna advised that our Africa trophies were being shipped to our taxidermist and that reminded me that I had promised myself to send this report once the trophies arrived and there was no further possible issue with our hunt.

This was a first-time Africa trip for my wife, our 2 sons and I, so were pretty
ignorant about trophy size and what type of hunts are available with what kind of quality. Based on what we were looking for, Jack Atcheson recommended Nick Nolte Safaris for a good family plains game hunt and we booked with him for a 10 day hunt. We never measured any of our 20 trophies, but almost all of the animals we shot were noticeably larger than others we saw, and the PHs seemed very pleased with the quality and size, advising that any number of them were gold medal quality. At a long layover in Johannesburg on the way back we talked to a number of other hunters who didnt do nearly as well in numbers and size, so we were very happy with what we got. We had been advised that kudu numbers were down about 75% due to a rabies epidemic, but the three of us each got a nice animal in the 50" range and saw more and bigger ones.

The end result is that the whole experience greatly exceeded our expectations in every way, including the quality of animals, hunting areas, equipment, accommodations, food and staff. It was great and were going back. As a second generation PH in his home area, Nick has great long-time relations with the landowners where he hunts. Nick and Isabel are fine and personable, well-educated people, and it was a pleasure to spend time and talk with them. My wife is a non-hunter but she went out with us every day and totally loved it. She says she was very happy to go along and begin to understand what hunting and the experience are all about, not to mention seeing dozens of species of animals and birds and the beautiful SW African landscape. Nick and Isabel purposely booked only our family for the 12 days we were there, and that made it a fine and unique family experience for us. Sorry to sound like a commercial for them, but it was just great.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: The contract driver was over one hour late to meet our arrival in Windhoek and then showed up in a vehicle that was too small for our party of six with our luggage. By luck my son had rented a pickup truck so we could easily accommodate all of us and the luggage. Including my family, two hunting friends and video photographer--7 in our group. We did not know until last evening of the trip that the cook was fired three days before our arrival. This put a big strain on Isabel Nolte to run the kitchen. In addition she was burdened with two young children that were ill the first half of our trip. So as a result the breakfasts and lunches were below par until we suggested some changes. Dinners were always excellent and included very good South African wines. The guest rooms were first class and always well maintained and very clean. They also were nicely appointed with attractive furnishings. Laundry was done on a daily basis.
Highlights of Hunt: Taking a world class Dik Dik on the third day of the hunt. Very abundant game for viewing and photography. The Noltes were very helpful in pointing out local sights to my adult children who did some side trips in the vehicle that they rented in Windhoek. The town of Omaruru is about ten miles from the lodge and is a very attractive and clean town. In fact probably the cleanest town I have seen in my seven trips to Africa. The town had several very good restaurants and some high end shops that were far better than most African curio stores. In addition there is very clean and high-end grocery store in Omaruru.
Equipment Recommendations:
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? In spite of a few glitches the Noltes worked very hard to make everyone's trip a pleasant experience and provide good hunting opportunities. They were willing to make changes when requested. I would suggest they consider hiring a manager when they can afford one.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I should mention the Nolte's property around the lodge is only a few thousand high fenced acres, so hunting is limited there. Our morning drives to other properties ranged from 30 minutes to one hour. So the further hunts can make for some very full days. The other properties were a mix of fenced and open range. The Nolte's hunting vehicles were in very good condition and quite comfortable. I did request an afternoon of bird shooting which was arranged for me.I bagged a few guinea fowl and some francolin grouse. A pleasant change of pace. We enjoyed the game birds for dinner the following evening.

SERVICE RATINGS (excellent, good, fair or poor)
Quality of Outfit: Excellent Guide/PH Ability: Excellent
Condition of Camp: Excellent Condition of Equipment: Excellent
Quality of Food: Excellent Trophy Care: Excellent
Name of Airline: Lufthansa and Air Namibia through Frankfurt Airline Service: Fair
Airline Comments: Air Namibia is fine - no problems. Lufthansa refused to permit my wife's carry on despite the fact that it met the size requirements. Airline said the bag was "too heavy" to carry on. It was gate checked after my wife hastily removed our prescription medications. Unfortunately, she put the medication under the seat in front of her and then forgot she had taken it out of the carry on bag and left it on the plane. Lufthansa customer service was unfriendly and unhelpful in trying to retrieve the medications and we never did get them, even though they were in prescription bottles with our name, address and phone number on them. One of our children subsequently became ill with strep throat and we could have used the antibiotic. However, Isabel Nolte contacted a pharmacist in Omaruru who agreed to meet us at the pharmacy and dispense a replacement (same exact prescription) on a Sunday when the pharmacy was closed. Isabel did a tremendous job in calming my wife's concerns and helping my son get back on his feet (and on the truck) within 2 days.

Trophy Fees: Amount: $16790

Total: $0


SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: We had trouble arranging access to the farm where we were to hunt roan and nyala and were ultimately restricted to a blind.
Highlights of Hunt: Unexpected leopard. We received news of a leopard that had killed a calf in a kraal and were able to set up a blind to hunt the tom when he returned to this natural kill for a second time.
Equipment Recommendations: None. Weather was cool in mornings and warm in the afternoons in July. Spotting from truck and then stalking on foot. Not a lot of walking.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? The Noltes run a first class operation and are very nice people who will do whatever it takes to ensure that you have a great experience. The game is abundant and you will take excellent trophies.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This was a great hunt to experience with my family, including my wife, who accompanied us as an observer, and my two sons (who were 12 and 15 at the time of this hunt). The boys took excellent trophies and had an absolute blast. We were very impressed with the quality of the lodgings and meals - my wife was very comfortable. The Nolte family is very warm and friendly and went to lengths to make sure that my wife was happy and had plenty of opportunities to do non-hunting things on the days she chose not to accompany us into the field. They are very professional and run a first class operation. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a good leopard or plainsgame in Namibia.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: My wife had to miss the first 2 days in the field as she couldn't sleep due to a reaction to the anti-malarials (Malarone) we were taking as a precaution (though there really weren't any mosquitoes in the area). We didn't realize this was the problem until Nick asked us what we were taking. Once she stopped taking it, she slept well and had no further problems. I just had bad dreams.
Highlights of Hunt: Taking a huge Gembsok and Hartebeest. Nick and Isabel are tremendous and very friendly. Their son Ben was a delight, as were the other members of their family that we got to meet, get to know, dine with, and even stay with for a night away at another ranch. The facilities are very nice, and the food is great. This is a very wife- and family-friendly trip (there is even a swimming pool). My wife was a bit apprehensive before the trip, but she spoke to Isabel in advance and was assured that there would be lots for her to do. She did stay behind one day to go shopping, sightseeing, etc., but preferred to accompany me in the field instead to see the abundant wildlife, including birds and baboons.
Equipment Recommendations: Laundry is done daily, so you don't need much hunting clothes. Make sure the color isn't too light or it may stand out too much. Everything has thorns, so I prefer long sleeves and pants, also sunscreen, leather shooting gloves, a good hat, and sunglasses
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? Terrific plains game hunt, especially for a first safari.
