update !!

First and foremost she wanted to thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts

Secondly she said that in her opinion the Baboon, Wilderbeest and Warthog are ugly. (-: She said to please send her apologizes to Dirtclod---it wont be the warthog, although she also enjoys hunting Javelina (-:

She does like the Nyala and the Lechwe, maybe the Hartebeest.

pointingdogsrule---thank you. We have accomplished that. She is smiling and has said, spending time in Africa with family is something she will never forget. Everything after that is just a plus. I can not imagine that she will not get 4 animals and 5 should be obtainable, but if she choices Lechwe, it will be a win whether she gets one or not as she will get to see some beautiful country ( we will move to the north Brent, which will let her see a variety of different animals ) .

Kansasdad ----I wanted to get back to you and tell you that Kenya was the first country in Africa my husband and I visited. This was back in the 80's. We did not hunt Kenya, but after work we went on two tours and fell in love with Africa.

thanks to all who posted and sent pc's

thanks for the regulation info, vikingsguy and europe

could one hunt only three plains game and a lion for the same price as 6 plains game ? I would think the lion hunt would be exciting

also if the lion trophy can be brought into the U.S., why not the Cheetah, Who (agency ) makes those decision/rules ?

I wish her all the best on her hunt

Nyala was near the top of my list on my second African hunt. I think they are one of the prettiest antelope.
I also like the spiral horn antelopes, and a different variety of bushbuck was high on my list on several hunts.
Any of the Lechwes make a beautiful mount.
A black wildebeest makes an unusual mount.
The choices are endless...

Caracal are a unique and fun because you get to hunt over hounds...something to consider. And they make a cool mount if (and only if) you have a good feline taxidermist. Have fun on your trip! Should be a blast.
