Airline Comments:Airlines from Atlanta - Johannesburg - Windhoek were very good. Something else that I should mention. I used a service called Air2000 (www/hunterssupport.com)that specializes in firearm clearance and storage in S. Africa. They take care of all the paperwork, meet you at your plane and take you through the process in just a few minutes. I combined the hunt with a work trip to Tanzania, and they stored my rifles for 2 weeks. Very efficient operation with reasonable prices, and I highly recommend them.

Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:None
Highlights of Hunt:Real wild hunting along the Kwando and Zambezi rivers. Crawling through the high grass to get close to a big herd of buffalos. Swimming across a river to get to a Red Lechwe I shot on the other side, then floating him back. The crocs must have been sleeping.
