Very nice report and pics. Congratulations on your engagement. I was there with Willem and Magda less than 30 days before your arrival. It was my third visit to Okawaka. Great place and great people.

Quote: I will be planning our next trip to most probably Tanzania or Zambia (which let’s face it, is a much better use of my time).

It looks like you used your time in Namibia rather effectively. Good hunt and good luck, or is it congratulations ... I can never keep that straight.

Thanks everyone! We're both very happy, about the trip, as well as this new journey together.

Hasher: nope, no sister

Now: anyone got suggestions on a 14-18 day safari first 2 weeks of March? Buff, Lion (preferably not over bait - call or s&s), PG for her, and maybe something bigger with IvorySmiler

Nice safari, nice trophies and nice pictures!

Congratulations on the engagement.

Do you mind me asking what camera you used?

Actually, forgot to add that: got a new camera for the trip: Canon SX30 IS (w/the x35 zoom ~ 800mm)

I have to say, its just a bit bigger than my "pocket" point and shoot... but a whole hell of a lot smaller and lighter weight!

As I was the one walking behind the group, was still about to get nice long shots of animals... and with that super-zoom it really gets out there (that baby Oryx was probably 80 yds away).

I would definitely recommend it.

Congratulations and good hunting,

Congratulations on a great hunt and a wonderful engagement.

Does S&S have a website? I am interested in taking a non-hunter woman to Namibia and the house is definately her style!

Ski,
Website: sssafaris.com

The current PH, Willem Serfontein, is leaving by the end of August. The property featured is Peter Sohrada's Okawaka Farm, which is very upscaled. Until a replacement PH is found, there will be no hunting there.

You may wish to try a Google search later to see if a new website has been established to replace that of S & S Safaris (Serfontein and Sohrada)

The big house you see is a duplicate of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.

I've hunted that property several times and seeing photos of it again was wonderful. When I first hunted there (in 1996) that house of Peter Sohrada's consisted of only the front steps.

Was the location of my first two hunts to Africa and recognized several of those views. Thank you for posting them and writing such an excellent account of your trip.

Congratz on your successful safari with your fiance! Nice facilities on that property!


On the plains of hesitation lie the bleached bones of ten thousand, who on the dawn of victory lay down their weary heads resting, and there resting, died.

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch...
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!
- Rudyard Kipling

Great pics!!! Congrats on engagement!!!
A gemsbuck calf is not born with horns it is just a old Namibian myth... the start growning horns just after birth that is why people think the are born with horns.
