If thinking of visiting Namibia....you should read the following article

Jump to last reply

just to be aware in which country you are shoveling your holiday $.

If you go despite the unethical hunting/killing make sure you don't end up on a "guest farm" which does allow hunting the very same animals you are keen to see on game drives - if a hunter requests to kill that very same cheetah, leopard or lion it will be trans-located to the very small "hunting area" - and will be gone (incl. its gene pool!) forever.

Just be aware.........

excerpts:

Namibia along with South Africa are the only two countries in Africa where one can hunt the entire big five; Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant and Rhino (White as well as Black Rhinoceros). Most of the plains game hunting safaris, along with Leopard hunting, take place in the lower two thirds of Namibia. Leopards are hunted both with dogs and on bait and can be found in many areas. While Lion, Buffalo, Elephant and Rhino are hunted on a very limited basis and primarily harvested in the Northern most part of the country, including the Caprivi Strip. Cheetah (Acinonyx Jubatus) can be found throughout Namibia and can also be hunted.

Namibia has recently began to offer Leopard hunting (by rifle only) with dogs on a limited scale.
