John Banovich is a longstanding donor and supporter of the Dallas Safari Club, serving as a "Partner in Conservation" with DSC to generate funding and awareness for conservation needs in wild places worldwide. Together, John Banovich and DSC share the message of conservation. This year, we present a truly exceptional and historic opportunity. The highest bidder will have the chance to actively participate in a remarkable elephant capture and relocation operation from Namibia to Angola, aligning with our shared mission of wildlife conservation. John Banovich, alongside Alex Oelofse and the Oelofse family, warmly welcomes the winning bidder to embark on this extraordinary journey, starting with an elephant capture at Okonjati Game Reserve and Mount Etjo Safari Lodge, situated in Namibia's diverse and pristine landscape, that includes mountain ranges, savanna, bush, and open grass plains, providing a habitat for a wide range of animals. Following that, these captured elephants will find a new home in a true oasis in Angola. In addition to this remarkable experience, the highest bidder will also enjoy a 7-day plains game hunting expedition in Namibia, tailored for one hunter and an accompanying observer. Trophy opportunities include Damaraland dik dik, red lechwe, and Hartmann's zebra, with the choice of a rifle or bow. Further trophies and extended hunting days can be arranged. The hunt is scheduled to coincide with the elephant capture, tentatively set for August 2024. Additionally, the acclaimed artist, John Banovich, will create a custom work of art from the adventure we had together for the winning bidder, capturing the bold and dramatic scenes of iconic wildlife that he is known for worldwide, while also encapsulating the dynamic experience of your safari.
