Thread: Flights to Namibia

    Flights to Namibia

    Afternoon gentlemen. Has anyone experience of travel to Namibia with firearms. Looking for a less stress rather than economy.
    Dont know weather to go Joberg then Windhook or Europe to Windhook.
    Cheers, Tusker

    I have been twice (a few years ago) Gatwick to Windhoek direct overnight flight. I used Air Namibia.
    They were pretty clued up as were the Gatwick security personnel.

    Hi Mark, did you not get any help from Brian? I would have thought that now he is an African Agent he would have his fingers on the pulse regarding all flights in that direction.
    Are you not going back to Kei River ?

    Hi Eddy, Brian is absalulty great with S.A. and Kei river and I would have no hesitation on returning there. A top pro outfit. But I have been there twice and just fancy something and somewere different. The prices and fees are very competative in Namibia and it is that bit wilder as there are only 2 million people in the whole country. Looking forward to taking an animal with my bow.
    Hope you are well mate. How was the boar hunting this year?

    Only direct flights from Europe now are from Frankfurt with Air Namibia.

    Ah, I thought Brian would have known all the routes and peculiarities for flights in that direction.
    So you fancy yourself as abit of a Robin Hood eh !
    I would feel more comfortable with a crossbow than a long bow.
    Yes, four trips this last season, two to Hungary and two to Croatia.
    Two very good and two not so good, two were more like an 18-30 club trip with guns and it was the first time I have ever had my disability made fun of, very embarrassing, so never again with them I'm afraid.
    Looking forward to this coming season, just bought a Maral to give it a try.

    Tell you what mate, if me and Gadge had been there they wouldnt have taken the p1ss . Bloody makes my blood boil. Your injury came in the service of our country.
    I know you are a dedicated boar hunter but I would love for you to experience Africa. And you you would be with good company.

    The only direct flight to Windhoek is from Frankfurt on Air Namibia - I'm travelling that way tomorrow!

    Been to Namibia twice before, but not with a rifle - hired the last time. My only concern is that the connection is a bit tighter than I would like (1 1/4 hours) - but otherwise travelling from Aberdeen is usually pretty easy - at least compared to e.g. Heathrow.

    Will report back.
