Hi all, just very quickly, I'd appreciate your thoughts and opinions regarding what level of accomodation you would expect and prefer should you decide to go hunting in Africa?
I appreciate this is perhaps more specific to the big game section, but I'm looking for perceptions from folks who have not been before as well as those that have if possible, and I'll tell you for why.
Two of my outfitters are in the process of building more guest cabins on their farms while another is looking to build some permanent shower / toilet facilities at a very remote outpost - which sounds great until you find out that there is no cement in either Namibia or South Africa and there isn't likely to be any for a while as all of it is being diverted for use in the construction of Football stadia for the forthcoming World Cup!
So, we're looking at tents again and that's why I thought I'd ask!
So, we basically offer accomodation in the various forms:
1) Staying with the outfitter / farmer as a guest in ther house
2) Staying in a separate cabin or lodge off-site
3) Staying in a purpose-built cabin on the farm
4) Staying in a luxury cabin with A/con and hot and cold running waiters
5) Tented safari
There is another option, the one I usually choose, and that's to just make a fire and sleep around that in the open, but it takes all sorts and not many people choose the rough-it option - lol.
So guys, which would you prefer to go for if you were travelling over, and if you didn't know already, which would you expect to find on your arrival?
