Warthog and Impala for both of us.
Neither of us got a chance at a wartie last trip.
My additional list:
Zebra
Red Hartebeest
Blue Wildebeest
Gemsbok
Blesbok
And possibly anything else that walks in at the right/wrong place & time.
We're looking forward to it.....again!

Hopefully there is a place close to my hotel.

Even though we both got the vaccine, we still have to test prior to departure

Cool. Tell Hannes I said hello..
Just remember before you start slinging arrows like we did that those swine and primates can get costly and hold shipments up.... The permits ain't cheap and clearing state side is a little more involved..

Did you get it at your departure airport or close to home? Anchorage to DC is one day, DC to Harare is 1+ so I'm concerned.
Thanks

As was quoted to me, we have to have a negative test result within 72 hrs of leaving our departure city (Houston); not before our arrival in SA. We've actually got a 14 hr layover in Frankfurt Germany.
So, I'd say that it's worth inquiring, just to make sure, for your particular situation.

Update: even though SA said 72 hrs prior to leaving the U.S. was good, we just found out the Frankfurt (Germany) requires a negative test 48 before landing there. We have a 14 layover there, and also found out that we can't leave the airport, without going into 5 day quarantine before you could even take another Covid test.
Moral of the story: Be sure to check on every step of your trip to make sure you don't get caught unprepared.

I'm trying to finalize a trip to the Selous in late July and it's been maddening with the ever-changing Covid protocols.
