    Hi Cameron, im looking forward to my first Namibian trip next June 2016. We are in the process of planning at the moment and our agent has recommended you as a destination for a short stopover on the way to Vic Falls. Im interested in doing some flyfishing for tigerfish if possible. Can you accommodate this? I will not have my own gear as this will be the only oppertunity to fish on the trip. Regards John

    I've heard that Wilderness Safaris is pulling out of Ongava later this year. If this is true, can you tell me who is taking it over and what difference that might mean? I have a confirmed future booking for early 2016.
