Interesting discussion sparked up round the fire on a past hunt. Would be interested to hear your thoughts.

This is over an 8 to 10 day hunt

Would you rather....

A) Stay in one lodge your entire trip, hunt one area that has 50% of the animals you wish to hunt. But then drive back and forth on a 4 hour round drive to hunt the other 50% of your targeted animals staying at the same lodge.

OR

B) Stay in one lodge for say 5 days and hunt one area for 50% of your animals, then take a 4 hour straight one way drive to another lodge and hunt the other 50% of your animals on one property, remaining at the second lodge for the rest of your trip?

Appreciate it.

Definitely B for me. I would rather make the other trip one time instead of back and forth several times.

This.

One of my favorite things is coming in the gate of a ranch, and not crossing that gate opening again, until it is time to go home.

when we hunted Africa we spent first few days in a very nice set up - comfortable and a controlled setting. Then we traveled a day to reach a million acre concession - slept in tents -

two set ups were polar opposite. We had our wives with us - it was the perfect trip. Experienced being in a comfortable set up and a challenging set up - was awesome

I am going for the hunting not the accommodations. The more time spent hunting is the key for me, so B.

First hunt the typical South Africa plains game - second hunt in Namibia - Kudu and Gemsbuck there - very cool hunt

If I were by myself I would do Namibia only - with a spouse the South Africa blended in softened it all somewhat for the better half

Never would be a trip for me since I have never had any interest in hunting over there.
