Why I Go to Africa and Why I Love it 13/13

July 26, 2018

If I sound like the chamber of commerce for Namibia and Africa, I guess I sorta am. It is important to me to connect to nature and shed the modern-day trappings that keep most of us from the things important for our health, both mental and physical. Africa has been good to me and I […]

Lastly, it is nice to get away from all of the rigmarole, hustle and bustle, social media, and network T.V. here in the civilized world. This is not to say that is not available in Africa, but it does not have to be foremost in your daily activities. “Unplugging” can do more good for you […]

Once again while there are exceptions, it is safe to be there. Like any place in the world, there are areas you may not want to venture into, but I have yet to find one. I have had my wife and children in country and I never felt uneasy anywhere we went. We went on […]

While there are exceptions to everything, people of all races the areas I have been in seem to get along very well. People seem to see people rather than color. Folks seem to understand that they need each other just to survive and live well. This is not to say there are not different economic […]

Africa is a value. Once you get there, it is not overly expensive to be there. Hunting camps vary greatly depending on where you are and what you want to hunt. That being said, hunting 4-5 head of plains game is often cheaper than a guided elk hunt here in the US. That is somewhere […]

A few general reasons: Africa is an adventure.  You never know what is around the next corner when you are in Africa. I go to hunt, but this is a plus for the photographer as well. Not knowing what the hunting gods (or photography gods) are going to reveal to you on any given day […]

The love of nature and being immersed in her wilds is another reason I enjoy Africa. The brilliance of the sun breaking over the horizon as you glass for game in the morning is a special time. I can liken it to being in a cathedral. It is quiet, peaceful, and the grandeur is breathtaking. […]

Chasing game in Africa is unlike anything I have experienced anywhere else. Whether it is with a rifle or camera, it is an adventure.

The boat. Many moons ago my darling wife convinced me to go on a small boat cruise. I did not want to go, but I am glad I did. On a previous trip to the Caprivi, we spent some time on a houseboat. We will do so again this tip. The “Chobe Princess” is a […]
